“Facing growing pains is a necessary step on the way to greater success… I felt supported by Sandra from beginning to end, especially by her ability to listen and understand and I was able to implement many of our plans easily and with confidence.” Flex Legal Network Inc., Erin Cowling, Founder & CEO
It can be lonely at the top and that’s often just as true for the owner of a 5 person firm as it is for partners and managers of a 50 person firm. Often more so. But why does that matter (beyond the obvious burden of a lonesome work life)? Good decisions are the natural outcome of conversations with a respectful listener who understands what you’re trying to accomplish, brings no agenda of their own and has the experience in your professional world to support your plans. Big or small, the steps you take on initiatives that previously held you frozen will generate the momentum necessary to go after your goals.
Finding a way to maintain continuity in this aspect of your leadership role, rather than defaulting to the typical stop and start cycle can be a game changer. Ongoing practice management coaching can help you to keep action steps on track, to hold yourself and others accountable for your commitments, to overcome obstacles with greater ease, to assess management tactics, to overcome conflict, to come back from adversity and to make the most of opportunities as they arise, in real time.
Even if you have a strategic, marketing or business plan in place, you will face forks in the road. And there will be surprises along the way. How should you respond? When should you cut your losses and change direction entirely? The best way to ensure your plans succeed is to take every step of the implementation as seriously as the development of the plan itself. Establish the resources, the structure and the advisors that will embolden you to move towards the next version of your own success, including regular coaching conversations that clarify the ongoing complexities of managing a professional office.
“…With Sandra’s invaluable knowledge, experience, and guidance, I was able to target our ideal clients through effective branding and messaging… She is a great listener and was always prepared for our coaching sessions, providing me with new perspectives to think about and great resources.
