Admittedly, the crucible of law school and the demands of law practice have created a caste of professionals that is notoriously well-armored and self-reliant. Increasingly, however, the profession is evolving. Attorneys are benefiting more and more from executive coaching that has long become a mainstay in the wider corporate world. Because it works.

How It Works
Executive Coaching is achieved by bringing clarity to the stated goals, evaluating the possible avenues forward, developing and the most effective and efficient plan of action, and guiding the learning and growth needed for success. The coaching process involves engaging the attorney in focused, direct and honest conversations designed to deepen self-awareness, reveal personal truths, and identify core values and motivators. The transformational power of coaching then ignites when the attorney takes action, with purpose, toward their desired goals.
