Is It Time for You To Get a Life/Career Coach? (11/09/20)

While career and other types of coaches may abound, those who understand lawyers, legal professionals, and the legal profession may be more highly specialized. But in a profession where careers are marked by transitions – from associate to partner, from in-house counsel to more senior management roles, or from practicing attorney to a manager or supervisor – some find that with the input of the right coach, that transition and the related adjustments can make the process smoother, faster, and more satisfying. 

What types of coaches are there? Just what can and do coaches do? When do you need one and how do you know? What should you look for in a coach? What’s the most effective way to find and use a coach? What are the barriers for diverse attorneys in accepting offers of coaching from their firms or law departments? Do those who are diverse need a coach who reflects the same diversity? Why or why not?
