Excelling at Work

“I would like share my deep thanks for Paulette and her amazing work that she has done with me in the last few months. My firm hired her to assist with improving client retention rates and understanding possible causes and come up with solutions. Paulette was insightful, thought outside the box and provided a holistic approach to the obstacles at hand. Her ideas were not cookie-cutter but rather a blend of her own knowledge, experience as a lawyer herself and refreshing imagination. The results that occurred after completing the journey with Paulette were off the charts.”

Personal branding is not about creating an artificial image for the outside world. It is about understanding your unique value proposition, and using that to connect with clients and co-workers.

Those in the legal profession who have recognized its importance have taken control of their careers, made pivotal moves and even attracted the business they want.

In 6 coaching workshops over 3 months, you will:

  • Discover the wealth of social science data that supports personal branding and how it can be used in the legal profession.
  • Be guided through a fun and thought-provoking exercise to articulate your own unique value proposition.
  • Learn to use your values as a compass to guide your career and make professional decisions.
  • Walk away with “content” to build and promote your professional profile.

$800 + HST per month (3 months)

This 22-page guide will help you create your own portfolio of accomplishments! Every year, associate lawyers are evaluated on their progress in the workplace. Every year, many associates fail to put forth the best case possible of their accomplishments because they can’t remember the details of their past work. If your workplace doesn’t engage in performance evaluations, tracking your own accomplishments is even more important.

Accomplishments demonstrate your skills and experience. They also help support promotional opportunities, job security and a bonus. This 22-page guide will help you create your own portfolio of accomplishments!
