Lawyer to Leader Coaching Program

To deepen the impact of the Lawyer to Leader program, Georgetown Law offers an optional leadership coaching component that makes the Lawyer to Leader program unique and personalized. With this option, experienced Georgetown Leadership Coaches work with participants during and after the program to identify leadership development goals and action plans, provide support and additional resources, assist in tracking progress, and provide developmental feedback. 

Participants will meet with their Georgetown Leadership Coach in person at the end of the first or second days of the program. After the program, coaching takes place over a six-month period as scheduled one-on-one conference calls. 

Some of the benefits to the individual participant and organization include: 

       • Heightened self-awareness and the identification of strengths and developmental needs
       • Individual development planning with goals and action plans
       • An accountability system to help individuals stay on tract
       • Reinforcement of the leadership development program and reinforcement of leadership competencies most relevant to individual development and organizational culture
       • Developmental feedback leading to sustainable leadership development
       • Professional growth that contributes to organizational effectiveness
