Moving Up

Stuck In Neutral

Are you unhappy with your career and not sure whether you want to Move Up or Move Out?

What’s the next stage in your career?  Are you feeling stuck?

If you are looking for a sounding board, I can help you figure out whether it is time to Move Up or Move Out.

I have helped hundreds of lawyers find more career satisfaction in or out of the law. In my three decades in continuing legal education, recruiting, and coaching, I have worked with lawyers who have used their legal education in every conceivable way.

Helping Lawyers

Are you unsure where your career is heading?

Are you unhappy with your work on a day to day basis but not sure why?

How badly do you want to make partner? Is the problem where you practice?  Do you want to be in more of a leadership role? Do you want to go in-house? Are you unsure whether you want to continue practicing? Is it the work? Is it the environment? Is it you?

Some of my clients have found more satisfaction by building a practice.  Some have made a lateral move while some have gone in-house or joined the public sector.  Some have landed in JD advantage roles (where having a JD is helpful but not required.)  Some have left the law altogether.

In law school, I had coop jobs at the public defender, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Office of General Counsel of Boston University, and the Boston office of a successful toxic tort firm.

Ultimately, I concluded that helping lawyers to advance their own careers was the best career fit for me.

Today I focus 100% of my time coaching lawyers like yourself. And I’ve never been happier professionally or personally.

It is hard to be self reflective. Coaching can help. I know. I’ve worked with four coaches throughout my own career.

As a coaching friend of mine said You can’t read the label from inside the jar.  That is why the world made therapist, coaches, and even lawyers!

What my clients say…

“If you are looking for someone to help you with workplace transitions, I would highly recommend Steve Seckler. I have known Steve for over 30 years. During that time, I have seen first-hand the dedication, attention to detail and commitment Steve puts into his work and his clients. In my own career when I needed someone to consult and bounce ideas off of, Steve was at the top of the list and always and consistently and eagerly available. He is an exceptional listener and has a special knack for knowing the right questions to ask and the professional experience that then allows him to provide thoughtful and meaningful guidance.”

“I had the good luck of meeting Steve, through a mutual connection on LinkedIn. In the past year, he has proven to be not only a fantastic coach, but an even better human being. Steve has helped me through some extremely difficult periods in my career and he makes himself available at all hours.
He helped both guide me to a particular firm that was a really good fit for me, and to make that transition a success.  He was also extremely helpful and successful in working with me to cultivate clients, which is something I have struggled with in the past. With Steve’s help and expertise, I was able to start building my book of business. I already referred several colleagues to Steve who are working with him and share similar sentiments to mine.”
