Webinar – The Essentials of a Business Development Coaching Program

On December 6, 2011, Peter A. Johnson and Paul E. Clifford of Law Practice Consultants, LLC together with Heather McCullough, Director of Marketing, Nexsen Pruet and Carolyn Meade, Partner, Moore &Van Allen conducted a Webinar on The Essentials of a Business Development Coaching Program. In today’s ultra-competitive legal marketplace, business development skills are a pre-requisite for individual lawyer and firm success. While law firms are placing increased pressure on attorneys to originate business, most do not devote adequate resources to attorney business development training and coaching. Firms which have invested in coaching programs have found that participants report increased business development activities, enhanced skill sets, an increased awareness of how clients “buy” legal services, and more comfort in “asking” for business or referrals.
