High-performance lawyers, accountants, doctors, architects and other professionals recognize the value of working with a practice development coach to sort through obstacles to meeting their strategic, financial and lifestyle goals.
Working with a practice development coach can enable you to successfully maneuver challenges such as the evolution of your firm (or clinic), the changing business environment, the need to develop leadership, communication or conflict management skills and the ongoing requirement for business development strategies.
We’ve been coaching the principals, partners and all levels of management at Canadian small to mid-sized professional practices since 2005.
While practice development coaching remains a relatively new tool to professional practice, it’s growing quickly.
Working with a practice development coach aligned with your firm’s (or clinic’s) requirements, your career plans and the nature of your practice can help improve your ability to…
- motivate others through effective leadership
- establish a culture of accountability
- maintain focus in the face of stressful distraction
- delegate and build bench strength
- improve efficiency by way of empowering others
- establish and follow through on priorities
- resolve conflict in a productive, win-win fashion
- market the firm in a manner that’s consistent with its professional identity
There are many routes to take your practice from point A to B. As consultants, we can work with you to draw up strategic and marketing-plans and also assist with the implementation of those plans. As teachers, we can deliver workshops that instill you with basic management principles that are relatable to your firm.
All that is good.
But, there will always be areas where you’ll be left to your own devices to make change happen. Even with the clearest of plans and workshops, at times this may prove to be a struggle. Because of its one-on-one nature, practice development coaching facilitates your ability to overcome the obstacles experienced at the individual level. It can be the difference between letting your plans collect dust… and moving forward in the right direction.
Busy lawyers, accountants, doctors and other professionals have taken to working with a practice development coach, on a regular and ongoing basis, because it has proven to be a faster and direct way to achieve their goals. It certainly doesn’t hurt that it also helps to make the journey to success a whole lot more enjoyable… for everyone involved.
