Lawyers with specialized expertise in their practice areas often find the transition to leadership a challenge. They may feel inadequately prepared to manage a team, develop client relationships, bring in new business and/or navigate the politics of a firm or organization. Learning new skills and behaviours for how to succeed as a partner or member of the senior management team takes practice, mentorship and coaching.
Working one-on-one over a period of time with a leadership coach creates an opportunity to build confidence and competence, to apply new skills and behaviours, and to better manage the demands of leadership in a legal environment.
As a result of coaching, individuals are better equipped to lead high performing teams; build positive client relationships; contribute to organizational goals; and sustain more integrated and fulfilling careers. Leadership coaching is an effective method for increasing competence in any of the following areas:
- Accelerating performance
- Balancing work and life priorities
- Business development
- Career progression/advancement
- Communication and conflict resolution
- Decision-making and influence
- Professional/interpersonal relationships
- Stress management
- Managing teams
- Time management
