Women Lawyers Forum – BC is excited to present this one-on-one coaching initiative to connect you to one of three lawyer coaches, Allison Wolf, Linda Parsons or Paula Price, to provide you with confidential, tailored support to adapt and grow your practice during COVID-19.  Subsidized by WLF-BC, your cost is only $125 + GST for

  • One 90-minute “Deep Dive” coaching session via Zoom; and
  • One 20-minute “Up Your Game” session via Zoom. 

In advance of your first session, you will sign a Coaching Agreement and pay your share of the fee directly to the coach.  Additionally, three are 3 fully subsidized opportunities to three lawyers who have lost their job or have endured significant financial hardship during COVID-19.  All participation is first-come, first-served.

This is incredible value for 110 minutes of a lawyer coach’s undivided attention, advice and wisdom! As there is only room for 30 applicants and registration is on a “first come, first served” basis, we recommend that you apply early. Don’t wait!

Coach Bios

Linda Parsons, QC, is a lawyer and certified executive coach.  Linda practiced as a corporate commercial lawyer in a national firm for over 25 years and built 3 discreet practices in:  corporate/commercial real estate; health law and infrastructure.  Following her certification as an executive coach at Columbia Business School, she built a broad coaching and consulting practice devoted to supporting positive change and informed choices by lawyers and other professionals.  Her practice extends to:  leadership and performance coaching, transition coaching, new parent coaching and business development coaching. During the pandemic, Linda has been very engaged in working with clients to meet the challenges of this time, as well as identify the opportunities and positive outcomes that this unusual chapter offers each of us.

Allison Wolf, PCC, is a senior coach working exclusively with lawyers. Over the past sixteen years, she has helped countless clients develop thriving legal practices and before that served as director of legal marketing for award-winning law firms. During the present crisis, Allison is intensely focused on supporting her clients and community in accessing resilience and surfacing the possibilities that emerge from these difficult circumstances. She is the founder of the resource website http://lawyerwithalife.com and is regularly posting articles and videos to support this effort. True to the philosophies of her coaching practice, Allison has created success without sacrificing her personal life. She remembers: “As a young woman I once visited Galiano Island in British Columbia. I looked out across the water towards the shores of Salt Spring Island and thought one day I’d like to live there.” Today she lives and works from her home on Salt Spring Island just a short stroll from the shoreline she gazed at so many years ago. Allison is grateful for her island life, particularly during this pandemic. There is nothing she enjoys more than a quiet walk by the water with her wife Donna and beloved rescue dog Chico.

Paula Price is a lawyer and certified executive coach. Paula practiced in the commercial litigation group of a national firm for over decade before shifting her focus to coaching lawyers and developing digital programming for professional development and public legal education. In her coaching practice, Paula focuses on helping lawyers overcome challenges that hold them back, helping them set goals, develop practices and work through obstacles in areas of time management, relationship building, communication, career transitions and strategic planning. Paula is passionate about using technology to bring people and ideas together. She has created on line professional development programs for legal professionals (available on her www.uplevelcpd.com website) which include an online training course for law students starting at law firms this summer. Paula lives in Vancouver with her husband and two school aged children and knows firsthand the challenges of balancing personal and professional goals.
