Coaching for Lawyers
Over the course of the past few decades, executive coaching has become the training method of choice for developing the capabilities of high potential performers. The increasing use of one-on-one coaching has been driven by the recognition that it is by far the most effective method of improving executive and professional performance.
Law firms have been evolving as businesses. In recent years the profession has changed dramatically, and firms have been struggling with learning how to best ensure that they remain competitive and profitable.
Historically, firms focused primarily on broad firm-based strategies and initiatives. Over time, there was a shift toward group planning and training, and programs were built around departments, practice groups, and client teams. Most recently, there has been a movement toward focusing on development and training at the level of the individual lawyer.
It is now a well established fact that lawyers respond more positively, and have much higher levels of success with one-on-one coaching than with any other form of training available to the profession.
