Business Development Coaching

This personalized coaching program focuses on increasing your book of business by analyzing your current profile, activities, and accomplishments and creating strategic steps to increase client development opportunities and revenue. The coaching concentrates on the building blocks of business development: creating a unique and authentic brand, building and retaining a robust network, and providing excellent customer service. We also develop strategies to address obstacles and any inner saboteurs who may be undermining your efforts. Other topics that we may cover include:

  • Conquering imposter syndrome;
  • Effective selling techniques & pitching;
  • Getting to the ask;
  • Quieting the inner voices that sabotage our success;
  • The business of law;
  • Building confidence;
  • Moving outside your comfort zone; and
  • Navigating politics

We work to maximize the impact of your business development activities and make them part of your typical business week. This coaching is also available for small groups.
