What Makes You A Successful Coach?
My legal framework, client-centered focus and relentless commitment to incremental action make me a successful coach. Supported by my own experience as an attorney and my track record of helping attorneys in their professional development efforts, I operate from a platform of intricate understanding of the legal profession. This knowledge lays the foundational framework for a coaching engagement with an attorney. At its very core, I speak lawyer.
Operating within this framework, I maintain an unwavering commitment to supporting and amplifying my client’s authentic voice. While I firmly subscribe to the notion that clients hold the answers to effectuate change or obtain optimal performance, this internal voice is sometimes muted by external “noise.” By maintaining an unwavering “you-centric” focus through strategic inquiry, I create a space that amplifies my client’s inner voice and intuition. Within this space, clients are able to more objectively assess their current situation, tease out their goals and trust their inner wisdom.
Finally, I partner with my clients to relentlessly commit them to action. I help clients construct an action plan to get from where we are now to where we want to be, while both challenging and holding my clients accountable to that plan.
