WITH Executive Coaching: Career Transitions for Lawyers - How to Make Your Pivot
3pm ET | 12am PST | 7pm GMT
Many lawyers feel stuck and unhappy in their professional life. They long to know what else they can do, yet it’s not easy to figure it out or step off the well-worn path. Despite hearing the common refrain, “you can do anything with a law degree,” they often don’t know where to begin. This program is for you if you’ve been dreaming of leaving the practice, switching to a business role or trying your hand at an alternative career but don’t know where or how to start. This workshop will help you pivot and plan for a new career and future. We will address how to replenish your energy, assess your transferable skills and overcome blocks and barriers. Walk away with clarity for what you want in your next role and a roadmap for your next steps to greater satisfaction and fulfillment.
