We combine expert business development coaching with powerful technology tools to create sustainable, meaningful results. Our experience has taught us that one-off training sessions often fail to produce a lasting impact. Our hybrid approach of sustained coaching and technology results in higher levels of engagement and accountability from lawyers while simultaneously delivering quantitative performance metrics as well as a measurable ROI to the firm.

Coaching sessions will focus on tailoring each lawyer’s individual approach to business development, optimizing their potential for securing new business, and developing a sustainable set of proactive behaviors. We tailor each program to the firm’s needs, but our most-requested coaching topics are as follows:

  • Profiling and targeting your ideal prospects
  • Crafting an elevator pitch and personal brand tailored to your industry niche
  • Integrating thought leadership into your value proposition
  • Growing your professional network within new industry sectors
  • Nurturing and converting contacts into clients
  • Relationship selling and team business development skills
  • Effective presentation techniques
  • Building awareness of your capabilities and differentiators
