Since starting in the world of coaching, I have met many from the legal profession expressing concerns about their chosen career. They worry about their workload, their stress, and want to improve their work/life balance. And it doesn’t help that firms are reducing staff numbers because of the global economic downturn.
Perhaps you are an associate looking for partnership. Do you know what kind of partnership you are looking for? How can you achieve this? Are you in the right place for that to happen? How can you gain the skills required to be noticed? And in this current climate the pressure is really on for associates to reach their targets and demonstrate they are worthy of being on the firm. This sector doesn’t offer a job for life any more.
Perhaps you are already a partner and would like to enhance your own performance. Or would you like to offer directional coaching for your staff?
Many believe that coaching just addresses problems or under performers, but this isn’t the case. Not only can coaching help unleash people’s potential, it can also help successful people do even better. Sports coaching is a good example. Top performing athletes all have coaches to keep them at the top of their game, and I would argue that the same goes for business.
Coaching can help you take a look at what’s going on in your life. It can help give you clarity and enable you to draw on your own resources and find the necessary tools to help you deal with life’s challenges and manage them. As you become enlightened, you become empowered, grow in confidence and achieve results.
Sceptical? That’s only natural. A lawyer who came to see me recently for the free consultation and taster session started off by saying: “I’m intelligent, I’m not stupid, and I don’t know how this is going to help”. After five sessions he instead was saying:”It exceeded my expectations greatly”.
Why not find out if we can do the same for you?
