When Rosemary started training to become a coach, one of her instructors commented that there was a great need for coaching in the legal profession, but lawyers think that only other lawyers understand them. We think he was right. So, we decided to set up a coaching practice to specialize in coaching lawyers and law students and other members of the legal profession.
There is a TED talk entitled, “Want to get great at something? Get a coach”. The speaker was a surgeon and his topic was about how one-on-one coaching on surgical techniques improved his patient outcomes and made him a better surgeon. We thought one-on-one coaching tailored to the needs of experienced litigators and trial lawyers could help bring them to even higher levels of effectiveness. We designed a bespoke program to enhance deposition, writing, trial and oral presentation skills tailored to the client’s needs, interests and schedule. We added a program to coach lawyers on marketing their services, closing the deal and client retention because in our coaching we identified this as a leading cause of attorney stress.
