Are you a busy lawyer desperate to quit the rat race and considering a change in career direction or indeed a complete re-invention? Or, perhaps you’re trying to return to legal practice after a lengthy career break? If so, what’s getting in your way? Do you lack confidence, direction or feel stuck for ideas on what’s realistic? Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the conflicting ideas and information whirling around inside your head and not sure how to process it? Do you worry that you’ve left it too late or simply can’t afford to do it? Or do feel pressurised to continue working as a lawyer because of the prestige / status, and worry quitting will result in others thinking you’ve failed, or your families will feel let down?

For an inspiring and empowering group discussion on how to manage common career blocks, enabling you to move the dial forward, sign-up for our virtual group coaching session – Hello Extraordinary: Essential tips to smash career blocks.

This two-hour long interactive virtual session, facilitated by our our editor / careers expert Husnara Begum (ex-Linklaters) and associate executive coach Matt Verrell (ex-Allen & Overy and Fladgate), will cover the following:

  • External & Internal career blocks
  • Self-limiting beliefs: fact or fiction?
  • Tips and tools for managing unhelpful thought patterns
  • Beating fear and taking control
  • Overcome procrastination and developing a can-do mind set
  • Setting goals

“The workshop covered a lot of ground in 2 hours, and I came away with food for thought on overcoming self-limiting beliefs, procrastination and other blockers as well as ideas for a practical action plan. Husnara and Matt facilitated the session enthusiastically and offered many real-life examples that resonated with participants. I came away energised. I would recommend the workshop to anyone who is pondering changing careers.” City lawyer looking to develop a portfolio career
