From Corporate Attorney to Startup CEO

Taking the Next Step

Larry was a corporate attorney. He had been seeking a new position for 8 months with no success. The legal profession was going through upheavals and corporate attorneys were becoming extinct. He had a vague idea of what he wanted to do, but no clear path for getting there.

What Happened in the Coaching?
Begin with "Discovery" a set of customized inventories, we call the Six Areas of Discovery. Larry was surprised to uncover a strong entrepreneurial bent and a passion for using technology to improve medical service. He identified core skills in the area of business planning.

The missing skill was networking and relationship building. He was not linking to the people who could help him achieve his goal, and he felt uncomfortable and awkward with the process.

Through targeted exercises and mock conversations with the coach, he greatly increased his comfort in articulating his value to others. He made a plan for meeting new people who could help him reach his goal.

Outcome
Larry greatly improved his ability to build relationships and expanded his network. Using new relationships, he was introduced to a "start –up" medical device organization. Hey hired him as CEO.

Steps to Success
Insight:/ Assess to discover fundamental truths about yourself, your passion and motivation. Find a focus.

Blind Spots: The key success factor is the ability to target your "blind spots" and hidden areas of opportunity. With this tighter focus, you will attract opportunities and have a shorter search.

Coaching: It's the old story, you can't know what you don't know. A coach will shortcut traditional coaching models which can take much longer.
