Finding My True North: From Lawyer to Global Coach

Dec 23, 2023

In the prestigious world of a large law firm, my journey began. As a lawyer, I was part of an environment many strive to reach, surrounded by ambition and legal expertise. However, with each passing year, a sense of unfulfillment grew. Despite my achievements, there was a feeling of incompleteness, a calling for something more meaningful.

After four years, the realization hit me. The intricate legal work, while intellectually stimulating, lacked the spark of passion I longed for. Seeking a shift, I moved to a trust office, hoping to find what was missing. But this change echoed my previous experience – the work felt even less engaging.

It was during this period of professional soul-searching that a chance encounter with an old friend on the street led me to a pivotal crossroads. This meeting opened my eyes to the world of headhunting and coaching for senior legal professionals. Intrigued and excited by this new perspective, I embarked on this uncharted path.

Over the next two decades, I immersed myself in the world of headhunting and coaching. I guided a multitude of senior jurists, helping them navigate their careers. This role was more fulfilling, bringing me closer to the impact I desired to make. Yet, a deeper calling for a broader change persisted.

The decisive moment came when I chose to embrace a grand adventure – leaving everything familiar and moving abroad with my family. This bold move was the catalyst for my true calling. In a new country, amidst diverse cultures, I found my purpose.

Now, I am an online coach for senior lawyers globally. My path through the legal world, my time as a headhunter and coach, and my personal journey of self-discovery have all converged into this fulfilling role. I help senior lawyers find their paths, leveraging my experiences and insights.

My story is a testament to the power of embracing change, the importance of listening to your inner voice, and the vast possibilities that open up when we step out of our comfort zones.

To all senior lawyers feeling the stir for something more, I offer my guidance. Whether you’re seeking a career transition, personal growth, or a new challenge, I’m here to support you with my expertise and personal journey. Together, we can explore your full potential and craft a unique path that resonates with your aspirations.
