By | Press Releases | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – June 1, 2010 – Effective this month, Meryl Moritz, Master Certified Coach, joins the ranks of other expert coaches in supporting TED Fellows by serving as their pro-bono thought-partner, inspirer, and facilitator of progress toward their big objectives.

The TED Fellows program is designed to bring together young world-changers and trailblazers who have shown unusual accomplishment and exceptional courage. TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design.  Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference and TEDGlobal — TED includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.

Moritz will serve indefinitely as a coach-mentor to young people whose desires map with her experience and interests.


It’s that time of year again…to set goals

By | Press Releases | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 1, 2009 – It’s that time of year again…to set goals (and remember the goals you failed to meet last year.)  Despite how insistent our society is on having goals, many of us collectively shudder at the prospect of writing goals down on paper, fearing we won’t achieve them, as we didn’t last year. It’s truly mystifying how we say we fervently want to do something, but often fail to follow through.

Executive Coach Meryl Moritz has light to shed on this topic when she hosts a Wisdom Circle session on Saturday, December 5 for the 14th annual ICF International Conference at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Moritz, a master certified coach herself, says that mastering the competency of planning and goal setting is critical to successful coaching.  “When was the last time someone asked you, ‘What do you really want?’ Or ‘what will success look like?’” The coach’s curious cross-examination of her client is the first step toward creating a safe environment where insights are abundant, and energy is created and channeled into new direction.

The best examples of planning and goal setting look messy and unformed at the outset.  The coach and client embark on a spelunking (cave exploration) adventure.  Both parties step into the unknown, the dark, the ‘as-yet-undiscovered.’  Coaching, of course, isn’t the first or only discipline to focus on planning and goal setting.  Sister disciplines of psychology, hypnosis, and others have helped pave and continue to light the way.

Meryl Moritz to Speak at International Coach Federation NYC Conference on October 4, 2006

By | Press Releases | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 1, 2006 – Executive coaching is something heard of but seldom seen except by the privileged few whose companies hire coaches for them or who are willing to foot the bill on their own. To demystify the subject, Executive Coach Meryl Moritz and one of her Australian clients, entrepreneur and world-traveler Katie Gallagher, will be on stage at the International Coach Federation’s – NYC Coaching Conference at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 4, 2006 for a live coaching demonstration called “Do the Bright Thing.”

Moritz, who is a certified master coach, says that executive coaching is an evocative experience for both the coach and the person being coached. “The coach begins a cross-examination of her client, first attempting to understand who this person is, and then learning what he or she really wants from coaching. The questioning is never random but rather builds to a point where action is the natural next step. The ultimate objective is to create an environment where insights abound. Often the coach is pelted with insights herself. It is a very empowering proposition for both parties.”

Only after fully appreciating who”the client is and what he or she wants to achieve, does Moritz decide on a coaching direction. After coaching hundreds of executives for thousands of hours each year, Moritz has created a proprietary coaching program that accelerates the executive’s development. Called Personal Global Positioning Systems, it takes its lead from the locator systems now featured in top of the line cars.
