A professional coach can help an attorney clarify professional goals and create an action plan for reaching these goals. The coach then works with the professional to achieve these goals. A coach is a sounding board, a reality check, and a mentor. A coach provides support, validation, and resources. A coach holds you accountable and helps you move past roadblocks. An effective coach offers a highly customized service that considers your specific goals and your particular strengths and weaknesses.
Law firms recognize the value of hiring coaches to work with attorneys who have excellent legal skills but need to develop their marketing and leadership skills.
Corporations understand the value of bringing in executive coaches to help senior management lead with greater effectiveness.
Individual attorneys who want to work more effectively, generate more business, or find better work/life balance are also turning to coaches.
And senior lawyers who are trying to figure out what comes next are also turning to coaching.
