Leadership and management skills coaching helps AmLaw 100 partner grow her practice and achieve promotion to equity



Business Development Coaching: 

“We engaged LeadWise Group to pilot a cohort group business development coaching program for a group of our junior/midlevel partners.  Each had rave reviews, and we’ve seen progress and results from them to the program.  Several mentioned that the program made BD concepts accessible to them for the first time, and others have mentioned they are much better organized as a result.  Nearly all had material uptick on their BD efforts/collections this year, with new opportunities, pitches, and/or revenue growth.

We did an anonymous feedback survey, and there were no negative comments about the program – a remarkable achievement in my mind, given how easily other programs or speakers are criticized in similar anonymous surveys! I am an enthusiastic fan of LeadWise Group’s programs.  We will be engaging them again this year for an expanded version of the program.”

“I would wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend the RainMasters Program to others. This Program is by far the best business development program I have attended. The Program is unique in its focus on personality types and on practical, realistic business development steps that one can easily take to improve one’s business development results.”

– Partner, AmLaw 100 firm

“As a result of my participation in the program, I was able to:

  1. prioritize how I spend my business development time to focus on those business development activities that are most likely to yield results;
  2. develop and implement a practical, workable business development process that I use to engage in business development activities at scheduled times throughout the week;
  3. bring new work from existing clients; and
  4. bring in a new client to the Firm this past week.”

“This program is excellent for anyone looking to play to their strengths in BD and being more intentional / thoughtful about their approach. Our coach was very good at helping us to look at our own styles, and understand the styles of others, then finding ways to use that knowledge to develop business in a more comfortable way.”

– Partner, AmLaw 100 firm

The program approaches business development in a way that I hadn’t previously seen. It was very effective. I am busier than ever. I am getting more ongoing work from two of my best origination clients, and my internal visibility at the firm has appreciably increased, resulting in more cross-selling opportunities. My origination credit is the highest it’s been from sustaining clients (as opposed to clients with more one-off engagements). Thank you!”

– Partner, AmLaw 100 firm

“Since we started our work together, my business development approach and, more importantly, my results have completely transformed! I am really busy with billable work and have had several new matters in the door (3 referrals just today!). I seriously could not have done all this without Yuliya’s eye-opening and heart-opening advice and support. Thank you!”

Leadership Development & Management Skills Coaching: 

“Things are moving extremely well. The team is working like a well-oiled machine. My associates are busy full time and are doing great. I am very happy. What’s made the biggest difference is me learning to let go a little bit more, but also being a lot more clear about what I want and what’s expected of my team. I also stopped fixing things myself; instead, I take the time to explain what needs to be done to correct it and let my team work on it. I feel that I became very effective in managing people and my projects and am excited to have three more large projects in the pipeline. I feel more confident, empowered and in control by getting this opportunity to dedicate focused time and energy to approach my practice from a more strategic perspective!”

– Equity Partner, AmLaw 100 firm

“As a partner with a busy practice, I felt that my management and leadership skills could use a boost. Little did I know just how much I would gain from working with my LeadWise coach! We started out by helping me understand my innate leadership style and my natural strengths, and areas where I need to stretch to be more effective leader for my team. I also learned how I can more effectively connect with and engage my associates based on their unique preferences. Overall, I found the process insightful, thought-provoking, practical and extremely helpful.”

Training Programs:

“We were looking to put on a kick-off program for our local Women’s Initiative group that would inspire our women lawyers to ongoing action. The program delivered was very well thought-out and it was both inspiring and practical filled with tips and strategies that our lawyers can implement immediately. The examples and case studies were relevant and on-point, reflecting the realities of the daily pressures women lawyers face and they offer real answers and solutions. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback about the program from our attorneys who felt energized, uplifted and motivated to implement new strategies to take greater ownership of their success.”

– Partner, Practice Group Chair, AmLaw 50 firm

“Great session today on strategies for successfully embracing transformational change!  The content is truly a helpful reminder for me of how I can think about change and what steps I need to consider as I encounter changing situations.  And, I am definitely going to work on the “Commitment to Action” exercise.  Looking forward to the next session too!”

– Member, Legal Department, Global Financial Institution

“Our Firm invited LeadWise Group to lead a program at our annual associate retreat. Our attorneys gained valuable and practical strategies to identify key relationships and grow their networks. This program did a great job providing actionable concepts in a way that encouraged instant application. We received a lot of positive feedback and we plan to build on the concepts in our future programming!”

– Elizabeth Brady Murillo, Esq., Director of Professional Development | Burns & Levinson LLP

“Airbus Latin America & Caribbean hired LeadWise Group to lead our team booster retreat to further strengthen our successful and internationally diverse team.  The program was customized to meet the specific goals of our team members.  The interactive sessions brought the team closer together and the programming on interdepartmental communication was particularly impactful in providing practical tools to bring meaningful value to the entire team.”
