Working with Dina has been a life-changing experience for me. I’m now ‘awake’ and experiencing life much for fully than before.
Jill provided much needed guidance and perspective as I transitioned from associate to partner. She helped me think about my new role from so many different angles, and most importantly, helped me hone in on what I wanted my practice and experience to be.
The most personalized, long term and insightful professional training experience I have had to date.
Dina is very good at helping me keep perspective and focus on things that are truly important, rather than getting overly concerned with the short term issues.
Dina has been extremely helpful in navigating and planning for difficult conversations, so that I feel better prepared to handle them.
Coaching is the top professional development experience I have received.
Jill has been a source of clarity, wisdom, and objective guidance throughout our coaching relationship. She has a unique ability to observe without judgment and empower me to recognize and use skills necessary to perform my best and live a more balanced, healthy life. Jill’s approach is professional, consistent, and incredibly compassionate. She is one of my most trusted advisers and a person to whom I feel I can bring any problem or concern.
I view my coaching sessions with Dina to have been a fundamental and integral component of my training. Only Dina’s coaching has meaningfully helped me build the framework and structure to manage the growth of my day-to-day practice.
I am now better able to realize and manage my limitations and to avoid a negative vortex of my practice spiraling out of control.
The law practice, especially one focused on client development, can sometimes feel like you are totally alone at the wheel. Coaching provides guidance to better manage the process and makes it feel more collaborative.
It may be that Dina has broadened my sense of what I need to do to grow into a thriving practice... including wellness practices, time management and workflow practices, and self-awareness.
Coaching has been hugely helpful in navigating the challenges of being an associate, especially after returning to work after having my child. I feel both heard and more empowered to make this situation work for me, so that I have a more viable future here.
The thing I most appreciated about working with Jill was the holistic approach. She helped me balance improving hard skills like public speaking, networking and marketing but also the just as important self-skills like taking care of yourself and creating balance in your life.
Coaching has helped me see that I have more control over my life and career, and begin to make choices rather than letting the choices be made for me by others and to begin asserting the boundaries that I need.
I learned a lot about how to manage my stress and well-being at work and how to use those skills to take my career (and life, really) to the next level.
Dina has offered me a great perspective on my work/life balance and mindfulness concerns... helping me to see that I might not need to have family dinner every night to be a successful parent, or give up Facebook entirely to be a good employee.
I feel a better sense of balance in my life, perhaps because I’ve achieved better work/life balance, but likely because I’ve made more realistic goals for work and my home life and am achieving them.
The behavioral interview training was fantastic and extremely valuable. Jill is an excellent advocate for this work.
Jill is an inspiring speaker. She brings a new level of authenticity that is rarely seen in big law practice and that helps people from all types of backgrounds come together on crucial issues.
The DiSC workshop helped me understand more effective styles of communication. After taking it, I have seen improved relationships with my colleagues, and I have been able to make my own communication style more persuasive.
Jill is an excellent speaker. The content was superb and her enthusiasm for the material comes through.
Jill is an excellent and engaging trainer. She excels at creating a welcoming and constructive space for everyone to learn new skills, step outside their comfort zones, and to tackle difficult conversations in a positive manner. I highly recommend Jill.
Coaching has helped me approach my work with more confidence and authority which I have been able to convey to colleagues and clients, with direct positive results.
Through coaching I’ve been able to better identify the diversity of my interests and skills and to hone (or feed) them actively. Coaching has helped me to better connect with my whole self.
I very much valued Dina’s commitment to confidentiality and her sincere interest in my goals and well-being.
She put what I was feeling into words and empowered me to make positive changes.
There are times when work is incredibly stressful, and I feel like Dina is the only person I can talk to about both how I’m feeling and also come up with concrete steps of how to feel more empowered and improve the situation.
Jill has been a lodestar throughout my journey to a more fulfilling career as an attorney. She took the time to listen and to understand me and my values and then collaborated with me to find concrete ways to help me develop new skills and take control over my future.
Dina is excellent at connecting with people on a personal level and really listening to what you want to get out of a coaching relationship instead of driving the conversation.
Jill was instrumental in helping me find my voice in advancement and as a new partner. Her advice was always practical and remained rooted in strategy that felt authentic to me. She took the time to learn who I was and listen to my experience, and she guided me in a way that felt collaborative instead of isolating.
