Coach Me

Professional coaching isn’t a new topic to lawyers or even to the pages of the ABA Journal. Yet we at the Journal continually hear lawyers say they are reluctant to turn that awareness into an actual working relationship.

Perhaps they don’t understand what, exactly, a coach could do for them. Or they’re not sure how to find the “right” coach--and even if they could, how could they spare the time?

That made us wonder what would happen if we helped the process along--if we custom-matched a lawyer with a coach and let them work together for one month at no cost to the lawyer beyond the expense of time and effort.
