COMMUNICATION WORKSHOPS

I practised at the Bar (England and Wales) for nearly 15 years and bring all of that experience into the workshops I deliver online and in real life.

On this page you will find details of current workshops with a link to book your place on Eventbrite.

(All of the workshops can also be delivered in-house or to private groups).

What is holding you back?

I have worked with people who are allowing communication difficulties to get in their way, whether it is avoiding a difficult conversation, or taking one step backwards when volunteers are needed to give a presentation.

Some people fear conflict, or battle with nerves.  Some have difficult conversations all the time but never seem to get what they want.

And when I work with leaders, the issue that arises time and time again is how and when to give feedback (both positive and negative).

One to one coaching can allow clients to find their own solutions to these problems (and help them get out of their own way). 

But many people would prefer to attend a workshop and get a mix of content and one to one attention, as well as sharing the experience with others.

 



Group Coaching

I run regular group coaching sessions for lawyers (and on-demand for mixed or in-house groups).

You will find the link to the Eventbrite page to book your place below.

But if you want to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact me for an informal chat.

Group coaching for lawyers


You will be in a safe online space with other lawyers and there will be time for everyone to be heard and for you to help each other.

As a group, you can use the coaching time however is best for you.  It is genuinely client-led.

But, because it can feel like a bit of an alien world, here are some examples of topics my legal professional clients have tackled:

  • Improving communication within the team;
  • Time-Management;
  • Work-life balance;
  • Presentation skills;
  • Applying for promotion;
  • Overwhelm;
  • Career-planning;
  • Tackling a difficult situation which has arisen;
  • Managing difficult conversations;
  • Returning from maternity or paternity leave.

 

The next workshop is on 14th September 2021 at 10 am on Zoom

The focus will be: "Tackling problems with communication"

 

I will share some top tips from the courtroom that you can apply in various scenarios. I will cover both oral and written communication and each delegate will receive the slides to keep and a Guide to Managing Difficult Conversations.

The group size will be small (maximum of 6) so that each delegate can also share an individual challenge in the second part of the workshop.

Cath will facilitate group discussions to enable the delegates to find their own solutions and benefit from the wisdom of the others in the group.

Book now so that you can start the new season and the new "term" with an effective toolkit to allow you to achieve your full potential.

There will be online Group Coaching for Lawyers  every month starting on 14th September 2021 at 7 pm

 

Whether you need a sounding board, a confidence boost, or some help with a specific problem, you will receive a warm welcome, peer support and professional coaching.

Of course, you may need to go away and put some work in - miracles are not for sale. But a group coaching session can certainly put you on the right path.

I  will ensure that the session is productive and constructive and there will be a loose theme for each session but it is hoped that the content will be led by the coachees, not the coach.

The sessions will run monthly on the second Tuesday of every month from September to December and you can attend 1 or commit to all 4.  All legally qualified professionals are welcome.
