I asked myself as I coach more and more attorneys, what holds back attorneys from working their goals. You have to understand that as a collaboration, the client and I set goals that are derived from what he or she wants to accomplish. That is the client’s decision in coaching. So if he or she and I have an agreement that working those goals will make the client richer, happier, more successful, have more leisure time, or whatever else they want, why doesn’t the attorney work them?
What happens time after time, that many clients have some reason that the goals are not even started. Not to instill guilt because that is not healthy, but I ask myself what the heck is going on?
