Lawyers, accountants, marketers, communicators, HR experts and other professionals have developed a high level of technical proficiency in their field. Often the next phase in their career development calls for them to become a trusted business partner to their clients.
This transition involves building a new, more equal partnership with their client and demands a new set of skills. They need to ask the right questions, know how and when to challenge and have a deep understanding of their client’s needs so they can offer the right solutions.
I coach professionals who are taking the step up from practitioner to partner and those who want help with specific challenges.
I help clients build their confidence and credibility as trusted advisors. I also help them develop and practise the skills required in the new role. In particular, we’ll work on understanding the dynamics of working with clients and their expectations.
