The legal industry increasingly views coaching as a critical component of their recruitment, retention and talent management strategy. An experienced coach can facilitate a dialogue among stakeholders about objectives and expectations, and can help identify opportunities for mutually beneficial solutions to competing objectives.

The legal industry is just one example of the ways corporations and their executives have been well-served by the function of the executive coach as of late. Simier Partners Managing Principal, Claire Simier, recently spoke with Bloomberg Law reporter, Stephanie Russell-Kraft, about the ways coaches are being utilized by Big Law. Read the article here.
