Every year, associates are evaluated on their progress in the workplace. Every year, many associates fail to put forth the best case possible of their accomplishments. Whether your workplace engages in a formal review process or not, you want to be able to set yourself up for promotional opportunities, job security and a bonus.

  • Advocate for, and promote, yourself without bragging
  • Gather your accomplishments using the “The Associate’s Guide to Creating a Portfolio of Accomplishments”
  • Design goals with your very own “Career Planner Workbook for the 21st Century Lawyer”
  • Anticipate and plan for negative feedback
  • Make any supporting documents more persuasive

You’ll also debrief your annual review meeting with Lawyer Coach Paulette during a follow-up call.
