Coaching For Lawyers
Announcing: Growing Mediation Practices – a three-part education series starts October 5 – Learn More Here.
More than anything my coaching work is about helping my clients achieve success however they define it. My clients are all highly intelligent, hard working, and value integrity. Coaching provides confidential support to help them achieve their goals. Here are some client stories (with names and possibly gender changed to protect confidentiality):
- Tamara transformed her work life from stress-filled days and chronic procrastination, to productive and enjoyable work days and acknowledgement from her employer for being a top performer.
- John made a successful transition from one law firm to a great position at another firm.
- Karim polished his business development skills, picked up some pro-bd habits, and brought in enough work to propel himself into equity partnership.
- Marcella shifted from an “I can’t do” to a “I can do” business development mindset through uncovering her own approach grounded in her strengths, values, and interests. She now has her own thriving solo-practice.
As a coach I am there to help clients move forward. As part of my commitment to the legal community as a whole I am the publisher of the blog site Attorney With A Life (or Lawyer With A Life for my fellow Canadians) which brings together a team of contributors from across North America.
Here’s a small excerpt of what clients say about working with me:
” I really like working with you and how you are able to cut through the BS and get to the heart of things.”
“Allison’s coaching style provides a relationship that empowers and supports me as a professional and holds me accountable for progress towards my goals. She balances accountability with understanding the nature of a busy practice.”
“I started (and most importantly, stuck with!) a personalized professional development plan that works for me. Making a plan, and continuing to put that plan into place. Without question, coaching helped shape the direction of my practice, and shifted my approach to client development.”
“She celebrates my successes, helps me generate ideas, and holds me accountable in moving forward, even when I am feeling uncertain or discouraged. She helps me build my resilience in dealing with all the challenges inherent in being a lawyer. She also has a very essential human touch I really appreciate.”
