Develop your Grit & Growth at this Summer Retreat

June 15, 2017

original allison wolf Grit and Growth SQUAREHow and why do we sabotage our own success? And make choices that shift us away from what matters most?

Answers lie in Stanford University’s recent research into the science of mindsets, and the power of growth mindset to move us towards an ongoing, active pursuit of learning, challenge, and mastery.

The Grit and Growth Summer Retreat in the City is designed for lawyers of all years of call to explore growth mindset and learn to apply it to your legal practice.

In this half day program you will learn:

  • recent science-based discoveries about mindset
  • growth and positive stress mindsets that give rise to enhanced resilience, greater ability to deal with adversity, and a trait known as “grit”
  • the connection between grit and growth mindset and success in legal practice
    the American Bar Association’s undertakings in this area
  • We will directly apply grit and growth mindset to the challenges of legal practice, such as handling a heavy workload, dealing with negative feedback, and managing difficult clients.

In this retreat you will:

  • Access tools to determine your levels of grit and growth mindset
  • Uncover the impediments to your own progress and strategies to overcome these
  • Identify your strengths and how to best leverage these for success
  • Develop your own personal plan for applying growth mindset in your personal and professional life
  • The Grit and Growth Summer Retreat balances teaching and training with periods of coach-guided, independent reflection.

The program goes well beyond the usual advice you hear about resilience and well-being. With game-changing, practical insights that lawyers can apply directly for success in legal practice, the coach-guided retreat format also provides a contemplative experience where new ideas and concepts can be immediately put into practice.

My Guarantee:

My aim is for you, and every participant, to leave The Grit and Growth Summer Retreat with new ideas and a practical plan to integrate the growth mindset approach into your professional and personal life.  If you are not fully satisfied, simply contact me within 48 hours and I will refund your investment minus a $75 administrative fee.

Announcing business development training for mediators

September 26, 2016

I am delighted to be collaborating with Mediate BC on an exciting initiative to offer mediators with strategies and tools for growing their practices.

My goal in all my training and coaching work is keep it simple and effective.  This presentation aims to cut a clear path for mediators through the forest of options – social media, networking, SEO, presentations etc. – so that mediation professionals can arrive at a plan that maximizes their opportunities and reduces wasted time and effort.

This Growing Mediation Practices program comes in three sections.  It starts with a webinar presentation, followed by an opportunity to develop your own plan and have it be reviewed by me, and wraps up with an interactive panel presentation with three successful mediators: Rebecca Alleyne, Amy Robertson, Grace Baker.

The whole thing is recorded so that if you can’t make one of the sessions you can watch and listen at a later time.

One last point, if you happen to be thinking about taking mediation training then this session is also for you.  It will give you a taste of the opportunities for mediators and what your practice could look like once you have completed training and are qualified as a mediator.

Announcing my new leadership program for women lawyers

January 5, 2016

This new year I am launching an a new leadership program for women lawyers, the Grit and Growth Accelerator, or G&G Accelerator for short.

My aim with this program is to help women lawyers make a powerful start to the New Year by:

  • Setting powerful life goals
  • Taming your inner critic
  • Talking back to imposter syndrome
  • Learning to wield your positive no
  • Discovering your inner mentor
  • Adopting a growth mindset
  • Writing your own recipe for self-care
  • Uncovering your strengths and values
  • Getting some new winning strategies
  • And charting a course towards showing up fully in your life

I am offering the G&G Accelerator in an on-demand video and PowerPoint format, so you will be able to review the lessons at a time and pace that fits your schedule. Each short lesson comes with assignments to carry out, suggestions for further reading, a discussion board for sharing insights with your classmates, group calls, and you have the opportunity to meet with me, your coach, for four touch-base phone calls at key points in the program.

The course is designed to be completed within three to six months, but you are free to take the entire year to complete it if that is what you need. As a coach I will be encouraging you throughout and helping you commit to action.

The G&G Accelerator is a pilot program offered for the first time at the end of January 2016. Enrolment is limited to 25 women, and as pilot participants your feedback on the program will be requested. I will be scheduling a personal call with each registrant before the program begins to learn about your personal goals for attending the program.

Pilot participants will benefit from special pilot pricing that is guaranteed to be offered only for this first run of this program. The cost to participate in the pilot is $197/month for three months, or a one-time payment of $497 upon registration.

As a further benefit, pilot participants will be given free access to any new, or updated materials, that are developed for future G&G Accelerator programs.

I want to make participation in this program risk free for you so I am offering a 30-day guarantee, which means that if you are not satisfied with the program in the first 30 days and wish to withdraw, I will offer you a full refund.

For more information about G&G Accelerator you can email me at allison@attorneywithalife.com.

Registration opened HERE on December 1, 2015 at 9:00 am.  The first five women to sign-up will receive a free copy of William Ury’s book, The Power of a Positive No.  Sign up today to make a great start to 2016!
