Benefits of Coaching to Attorneys

Coaching for Lawyers can be a powerful ally in maximizing your legal career. Below are a few of the benefits of coaching to attorneys and some practical applications of coaching:

  • A silent partner working for your legal career success and personal happiness.
  • Someone whose only concern is for you and helping you get what you want. No hidden agendas or conflicting relationship, friendship or law partner issues.
  • A sounding board for your ideas.
  • Someone to brainstorm with.
  • Objective feedback backed by legal experience and coach training. I tell the truth about what I see and hear. If you are on the wrong track I let you know it.
  • Support when the going gets tough.
  • Someone to share the victories with you.
  • Someone to help you create a vision of the future you want and hold the vision for you.
  • An accountability partner who holds you to your commitments to yourself. Who keeps you on track to reach your goals.
  • A strategist to work with you on the nuts and bolts of your legal career and life plan. To help you decide what to do and when to do it.
