Career Coaching for Lawyers

This individualized program helps lawyers and leaders achieve career and life ambitions. Together we create a vision for your future professional and personal life. This is whether you are grappling with the practice and business of law, considering a career transition, seeking a promotion, navigating politics or challenging personalities, beginning or reinvigorating your business development efforts, or enhancing your leadership and management skills. As a trained coach, I ask powerful and probing questions, partner with you to address the inner voices that undermine your efforts, create effective habits, and challenge you to leave your comfort zone. Together we develop and execute a plan for career fulfillment and advancement. If helpful, I can also conduct a 360 review at an additional cost.

Our coaching is conducted in a convenient, private, and confidential matter by phone or video conference. As all of our conversations are confidential, you are free to speak openly and confidentially with no fear of judgment. During our coaching sessions, I address your specific needs and circumstances. In between sessions, you will work on the next steps to bring your closer to your dream career. Throughout the coaching process, I provide honest feedback, encouragement, and accountability.
