We recognize the importance of making the best use of an attorney’s valuable time. As such, we’ve developed a highly successful model of brief, powerful, high-impact coaching for law firms.

One-on-One Coaching sessions for Associates and Partners

Each attorney meets privately with an experienced MacKenzie Brown coach for 45 minutes to an hour. Together, they choose a key communication skill to address, based on the attorney’s priorities. In a highly intensive session, the coach records the attorney in a benchmark exercise, gives directed feedback, and teaches the necessary skills.

After practicing the skills, he or she delivers a final, recorded drill, and sets goals for reinforcement. These sessions may target:

  • Presence or presentation skills
  • Kicking off meetings or calls
  • Delivering difficult or complex information to clients
  • Managing challenges with colleagues
  • Building client relationships
  • Landing new business

One to two-hour group seminars for Associates

In addition to private coaching, firms may choose to deliver 60-90 minute modules on any of the following topics to groups of Associates:

  • Communicating with Impact
  • Writing for Results
  • Partnering with the Client
  • Leadership Communication
  • High Impact Presentations

Mr. MacKenzie is also available for key-note speeches or panel discussions on communication skills at firm partner meetings or off-sites.
