Attorneys spend years learning how to form comprehensive legal arguments, but law school never teaches them how to market themselves in a competitive industry.
Ultimately, your business — whether you’re operating as an individual or as part of a law firm — will depend just as heavily on this skill as your actual legal acumen. Many firms lack the necessary internal resources to teach their new associates the critical qualities that will contribute to their long-term success, and that can spell trouble when books, seminars and courses don’t quite provide the impact you’re looking for.
Sometimes, professional coaching might be what it takes to advance personal growth, and Coachfirm has the experience and expertise to assist to attorneys as well as those in other legal professions. We’re celebrating our 15th anniversary as a firm serving southeastern New York, northeastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey, and we’ll gladly act as a valued extension of your management team.
Career Counseling for Lawyers
As a coaching firm, we’ll help you achieve the growth necessary to accomplish your goals. Rather than direct you to a specific solution and what you need to do to accomplish it, like a consultation, we’ll help you to develop a plan of action. It will include a series of short-term goals designed to help complete the long-term goal, all of which you must accomplish on your accord. Think of it as personal health training for your career.
Coaches will maintain frequent contact with you and help with surmounting specific roadblocks that might inhibit your success. It will be a personalized, one-on-one experience, which often appeals to lawyers whose social inclinations are more subdued.
From a legal perspective, coaching pertains primarily to self-marketing because selling is not a skill that comes naturally to attorneys, nor is it frequently taught.
Other aspects that can benefit from attorney coaching are time management, staff management, case management and overall communication. Being a lawyer is often stressful, and refining these skills can reduce burnout, which can subsequently lead to a happier — and more successful — professional and personal life.
Coachfirm Will Help With Your Attorney Coaching Needs
It takes a lot of self-reflection to acknowledge the need for change in your approach, and we recognize that.
