Our careers are shaped by thousands of actions over time, just as the shape of a shoreline is created by the constant pressure of a thousand waves. But unlike a shoreline, we can have far more control over the shape and outcome of our business lives.
Lawyers are expected to become experts in a broad range of areas, well beyond legal knowledge. It is unreasonable to think we can be great in all of those areas, or that we can learn how to be great in all areas on our own. For this reason, I offer coaching for lawyers.
Coaching is a personalized, structured method of helping individuals to set business goals, identify and overcome roadblocks, and commit to an implementation plan. Individuals who seek out coaching have a desire to improve themselves in some way: they just don’t know how to get there. As a coach my role is not to tell you how to live your life. My focus is on helping you to articulate assertive goals for yourself (in life or business), and pursue them as effectively as possible. Good coaching brings out the best in individuals, faster than if they had tried to work out their issues on their own.
