Why use a lawyer business coach?

You can use a lawyer business coach for many reasons:


(1) If you're leaving your firm to start your own solo law practice you'll find working with a professional lawyer coach especially rewarding and profitable. Your practice goals will be achieved sooner and with greater ease than going it alone.

(2) You may need to overcome some limitations that are blocking you from effectively marketing and promoting yourself.

(3) As a law partner you can use coaching to develop your leadership skills within your firm and in the many organizations in which you are involved.

(4) As an associate you can use coaching to accelerate your move up on the partnership track.

(5) As a new partner you can plan and strategize a more successful transition from associate to partner.

(6) To more effectively supervise, manage and mentor staff and associates.

(7) As a senior-level attorney who has been practicing for years you can use coaching to develop strategies for dealing with change in the market place, sharpen your management skills and refresh your enthusiasm for your practice.

The best lawyers use a professional coach, like athletes, to get even better.
