For over 20 years, as a former senior legal officer for a Fortune 50 company, I successfully developed, coached, and transformed talent in corporate America, and law firms. As a former senior in-house attorney, I understand what clients are seeking in the lawyers, leaders, and law firms they hire, retain and promote.
Today, as a certified coach and career and business consultant, I partner with lawyers, leaders, and legal organizations to design careers, build skills, and develop business.
My passion is helping lawyers, leaders, and law firms realize their career and life ambitions. In my coaching sessions, presentations, and workshops, I focus on pragmatic ways to build a career or business without feeling inauthentic, inadequate or powerless.
Common challenges my clients often face include:
· Grappling with the practice and business of law
· Building a book of business without feeling "salesy” · Converting contacts into clients without feeling "pushy”
· Leveling up their careers when they feel stalled
· Building a professional profile to propel their careers
· Tooting their own horn without feeling like a bragger
· Creating a network that increases their net worth
· Enhancing their leadership and management skills
As a trained coach, I ask powerful and probing questions and work with clients to address their inner voices that undermine their efforts, create effective habits, and leave their comfort zones.
I provide methodologies and training for organizations to develop the necessary skills, attributes, and marketing capacities to create strong teams and client relationships and drive revenue.
I am a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion and frequently speaks on this topic, as well as on leadership, career, and business development.
