AREAS OF EXPERTISE

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

In order for any law firm to thrive in today’s competitive legal market, it must have effective leaders in place at all levels. But the skills to be a successful leader are different from those to be a good lawyer. Our leadership development coaching programs are specifically designed for forward looking law firms that want to remain competitive and attract the best talent to proactively developing their attorneys to lead with confidence, while developing a pipeline of future leaders.

  • Mindsets, traits & habits of successful leaders

  • Influence / executive presence

  • Working & leading across multiple generations

  • Leadership training for practice group chairs

  • Visioning & alignment

  • Talent retention / employee engagement / motivation

  • Improving organizational culture

PEOPLE & PRACTICE MANAGEMENT

The more senior attorneys become, the more important becomes their ability to effectively manage their people and their practice. We help lawyers transform into more effective people managers and become more productive (and more profitable as a result!) by helping them learn new mindsets, adopting empowering behaviors, and overcoming personality and productivity barriers with our non-traditional, creative techniques and solutions.

  • Managing others (managing up, down, and across)

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Utilizing practical strategies, behavioral science and transformative coaching techniques while following a comprehensive business development curriculum, we help lawyers create a platform for developing business at any level of seniority. They will get concrete, effective techniques, set specific goals and create the accountability they need to move their business development efforts forward and expand business for the firm.

  • Mastering the “ask” / attending pitches / closing deals

  • Effective cross-selling

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

Powerful communication and presentation skills are essential in today’s global legal market. And while generally lawyers are viewed as strong communicators, when it comes to presenting for purposes of advocating for themselves or their ideas, representing the firm, or developing new business, many lawyers have never been taught the fundamentals of effective communication. As a result, many are not communicating or presenting with authority, influence, or confidence.

  • Speaking with confidence & influence
  • Presentation structure for improved engagement

  • Overcoming public speaking anxiety

  • Adapting communication to personality styles
  • Effective story-telling & active listening

  • Speaking for business development

WELL-BEING / SELF-AWARENESS

It is common for lawyers to feel frustrated by the never-ending demands of the profession and exhausted from trying to juggle them all. There are proven tools and strategies to boost resilience and improve performance and productivity to create a life with less stress and overwhelm and more focus and happiness. Our programs utilizing brain science discoveries, mindfulness techniques, and other powerful approaches that help attorneys improve their sense of well-being.

  • Emotional intelligence / self-awareness

  • Growth mindset / continuous learning

  • Resilience / mental toughness

  • Managing stress and excess pressure

  • Utilizing mindfulness & meditation techniques

  • Maintaining mental health

CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE

A common misconception is that people challenges in multinational environments arise from language barriers. But this is only one element that contributes to potential misalignment, misunderstanding, conflict, or inefficiencies among multicultural team members or when working across borders. Today, career success depends on each lawyer’s ability to interact with, manage, lead and do business with people of different cultures, whether in their own country or abroad.  

  • Gain understanding of cultural differences & their impact

  • Effective cross-cultural communication

  • Resolving intercultural conflicts

  • Leading multi-cultural teams

  • Doing business across borders

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!

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!
