Performance Coaching for Attorneys


 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, attorneys are benefiting from executive-style coaching that has become a mainstay in the wider corporate world.

Performance Coaching for Attorneys is executive coaching that improves personal effectiveness. Accomplished in a confidential, one-on-one relationship, Performance Coaching enables attorneys at all levels to determine their personal and professional goals, evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, understand their personal work and communication styles, identify fertile areas for growth, overcome impediments, and ultimately take new action for improved performance and success.  

Who Can Benefit from Performance Coaching?

Virtually every attorney could benefit from Performance Coaching, provided they have sufficient motivation and a modicum of self-awareness.  So, the question becomes - what attorneys are motivated for change? Some examples:

  • Experienced, successful attorneys in challenging leadership roles

  • Associate attorneys wanting to create success within a firm and become partner

  • Solo-practitioners who desire to balance the demands of managing and practicing

  • In-house attorneys wanting to reach the next level

  • Attorneys wanting to improve their client relationships and increase their practice

  • Decision-makers wanting honest feedback from an experienced attorney with no agenda

  • Worn-out attorneys seeking to reinvigorate their practice and life

How It Works

Attorney Performance Coaching is achieved by bringing clarity to whatever the goals may be, developing a plan of action, and guiding the learning and growth needed for success. The process involves engaging the attorney in honest conversations designed to deepen self-awareness, reveal personal truths, and identify core values and motivations for the purpose of aligning one’s actions with their stated goals.
