Donna Wannop’s Approach to Coaching
Coaching is all about change and improving performance. Coaching helps high potential lawyers successfully develop their practices, differentiate and position themselves in their chosen areas of specialty, and generate a solid and profitable client base.
Different lawyers have different strengths, skills, personalities, interests and objectives: accordingly, the roads to success in the practice of law are many. Donna helps lawyers understand which road to take. Her approach is non-formulaic both in terms of structure and substance: in each case the coaching process is designed to fit the individual lawyer and his or her needs, rather than trying to force the lawyer to fit into a predesigned program or system. This approach ensures that the coaching experience is meaningful, relevant and productive.
Donna guides her clients through a process that allows them to explore ideas and address issues. She provides objective, nonjudgmental input, guidance and support. She helps each lawyer discover what will work for them, and helps them understand how to access and apply their own unique talents, skills and resources, and how to overcome obstacles. The sessions provide an opportunity for lawyers to focus on whatever they most need to address. The objective is to help each lawyer move toward his or her goals, and to work in ways that are more positive, productive, interesting, satisfying and rewarding.
