If you’re attending the 2018 PDI Conference, stop by and see Kara present on a panel about law firm career coaching!

Program Description

An important change is taking root in law firms across the country. Firms have begun using internal career coaches to help lawyers navigate increasingly dynamic — and unpredictable — career paths. Successfully implementing a career coaching program can offer firms a meaningful opportunity to engage their lawyers and enhance their talent development initiatives. But coaching programs are routinely met with skepticism, fear, and an elephant in the room asking, “Why would my firm invest in a program to help lawyers think about leaving?” This session has a simple aim — to demystify career coaching. Join us to hear from several internal career coaches and an external coach what career coaching is, how it’s done, and why it’s critical to your firm’s success. And, to be sure, we will discuss the many elephants in the room.
