WOW! I have to say that this book is far beyond anything I ever expected. I thought, based on the title, that this book was going to be about ‘how to coach attorneys’; but it is not. To the huge benefit of any attorney that reads this text, the sub-title says it all - this book is your guide for “improving productivity and achieving balance.” This book is YOUR COACH. The 11 chapters include: • How to use this book • What do you want from this book? • Accountability – Your keys to the kingdom • Are you committed? (and if not, why not?) • Values-based living • The case for self-maintenance • Managing your time and energy – a different way to practice • Communication skills for lawyers • Purpose and Vision • The art of enrollment • Trust in our profession The substantive content covers concrete steps like how you go about identifying and moving past obstacles; making an effective request or promise; and determine and articulate your firm’s values. It presents a new paradigm for better managing your time and for creating and implementing your special vision. If you invest in reading this material, you may just learn how to delegate (properly); listen (like you think you know how already); and actually understand the basic behaviors that build and break trust (so, do you know how are you going to fix that last mistake). And every one of this chapters starts with “Why read this chapter?” includes an Introduction, various helpful exercises, in-depth content and concludes with specific “Homework.” I’m only sorry that I cannot tell you anything about the authors, as I have yet to meet and do not know either of them. But great job ladies, I’m sincerely impressed.

A truly wonderful book. If you’re a new attorney at a loss as to how to really start the career you want or a seasoned lawyer looking for a little more guidance into how to better achieve your goals, I would definitely recommend Coaching for Attorneys. As other reviewers have mentioned, this book does not provide all the answers, but what it does do is give you a structured roadmap that enables you to focus in on what truly matters to you in your life and your profession and how to begin achieving your goals. What I loved most about Coaching for Attorneys is how easy the coaching concepts and tools are to understand. I loved how the authors used real life examples and stories to demonstrate common issues attorneys have to deal with and steps you can use to remedy these issues. This is a coaching book every attorney should own.

This is definitely not "just another" practice management book. I love how well the authors tells the reader what they're going to learn, prior to their commitment to read. It makes reading sections I typically wouldn't find relative, worth reading for the sake of completion, as the entire book is full of helpful ideas. It motivates a creative way of looking at the practice of law and made me think more organically about goals. I found Values-Based Living and Enrollment especially thought provoking. I think Ms. McLaren and Ms. Finelli did a terrific job and I can't wait to get this book in the hands of some of my clients. Tony Bell Bell & Co. Private Wealth Management The Lawyer's Advisor

Life in the practice can really take its toll. We all work too hard at times and find ourselves overwhelmed and stressed beyond our limits. Coaching for Attorneys offers an engaging, straightforward solution. Train yourself to take care of yourself. Be accountable, for both your faults and your accomplishments. Reward yourself when you’ve earned it, and take a break when you’ve deserved it. Certified Performance Coach, Cami McLaren and Sacramento attorney, Stephanie Finelli, offer intuitive, practical solutions for the daily issues we face as attorneys and help walk attorneys through simple, approachable methods for improving their outlook, their performance and their overall well-being. Read just a few pages a day, and you will begin to see a change in your reactions, your communications skills and your interactions with co-workers and colleagues. You will breathe easier, enjoy the practice more and be thankful for it. -- Annie Dike Author of The Billable Hour at www.billbetter.net.

If you have asked yourself “Why am I not happy?”, or “Where is my career going?”, then I would recommend that you read, and work through, Coaching for Attorneys. This book offers a structure through which you can plan and act to make positive changes in your life by making conscious choices. The key aspect of Coaching for Attorneys is that the book does not provide the answers for you. Commitment to working through the book is absolutely necessary. It won’t be easy though. This book should come with a warning sign, “work required by reader”. Hard work. This book coaches the reader through a series of distinct but connected chapters akin to individual workshops. Reading about the tools is not enough. You will have to think through the questions posed in the “homework assignments”, do some soul-searching, and actually take action before the true value of this book can be mined from the pages. The authors declare on the first page of the book that “Commitment shows up in action” and that “Change will not happen without commitment”. I worked through this book once and will do so again to keep myself on track. I keep a copy by my desk to refer back to it when I am feeling overwhelmed. I would recommend this book to any attorney.
