ONLINE MEETING: Your Transition Tool Kit: 6 Steps to Effecting Change
This meeting is being hosted by the Women Lawyers Forum

Speaker(s): Paula Price, Lawyer and Executive Coach
Time: Friday, June 19, 2020 at 12:00pm - 1:00pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

Welcome to the final in a series of three webinars from the BC WLF targeting YOUR questions about practicing law during COVID-19 and helping you adapt your practice!

In March, lawyers transitioned to adapt to the COVID-19 crisis. For many lawyers, that included moving to a home office, navigating novel challenges in their practice areas and finding new ways to serve clients who were struggling, while – in many cases – struggling themselves. Now, as restrictions ease in British Columbia, lawyers are transitioning again: into a collective “new normal” that is yet uncertain and unknown.

Transitions happen to everyone at various stages of their careers. In this case, we’re all transitioning at the same time, together. In first of these coaching webinars with Allison Wolf, PCC, you learned how to identify opportunities. In the second session with Linda Parsons, QC, you explored how to maximize those opportunities. In this third session, we’ll explore six tools you can use to see an opportunity through to fruition!

In this one hour session with Coach Paula Price, you will:

  • Learn 6 tools you can use when facing a new opportunity or challenge;
  • Explore practical examples of how these tools are applied; and
  • “Test” each tool by applying it to your own situation (this will be your own individual work).

To make our session most productive, please prepare yourself by having in mind one challenge or opportunity that you’re currently facing. Attendees are invited to submit their challenges or opportunities in advance of the session, along with any questions about how to approach those challenges or opportunities, barriers they’re facing or problems they’re having in figuring out next steps. This step is not necessary, but it will allow Paula to tailor the examples to the challenges and opportunities you’re currently facing.

Please address your emails to Paula at pprice@uplevellawyercoaching.com with the subject line “Transition Tool Kit”.

In this session we will anonymize any input from the participants to the greatest extent possible and will endeavour to give ‘real life’ examples, without identification of individuals.

Speaker Bio

Paula Price is a lawyer and certified executive coach. Paula formerly practiced in litigation at a national firm and has first hand experience in a busy practice. She also has experience working from home during the pandemic with two school-aged children, a husband and a much-neglected "home school" curriculum, all under one roof. In Paula's coaching practice, she works with lawyers and other professionals, helping them sort through layers of competing aspirations to identify priorities and take results-focused action. She's also keen about using technology to connect people and ideas, and strongly believes that social distancing doesn't need to mean social disconnection.
