Leadership & Business Coaching For Lawyers

Create Your Next Level of Success In Law & Life

Confidently retake control. Make a bigger impact. Start having fun again.

Heather will reenergize you professionally.

When I first came to Heather, I was overwhelmed by my workload and the pressure to build more business. One of the biggest benefits of working with Heather is her ability to get you to rethink and then refocus on what’s most important.

Working with her enabled me to let go of the (mostly self-imposed) pressure I felt while increasing my business by over $100,000.

Heather takes a highly individualized approach that delivers.

Heather spends time getting to know her clients to understand their strengths, weaknesses (real and perceived) and values. She helped me find and laser focus on the techniques that play to my strengths and fit to my personality.

Thanks to our work together, I increased originations by close to 30% in one year.

You’re driven, and value both excellence & service.

But your inability to say “no”, tendancy to over-promise and near-perfectionist standards are unsustainable. And they’re smothering the spark that made you want to be a lawyer in the first place.

You know it takes more than being a good technical lawyer to get to the next level. Yet you don’t know how to add more to your already (more than) full plate. You feel stuck.

As a recovering lawyer who practiced in BigLaw for over 18 years, I’ve been there. And you’re not alone…

Did you know that over half of all practicing attorneys report feeling stressed and/or anxious most of the time? And worse, we’re 3.6 times more likely to suffer from depression.

What if you could achieve the success + impact you’ve always wanted while reprioritizing around what’s important to you

(and let go of everything else)

Instead of continuing to…

»» Spend your time on things you don’t want to be doing, barely squeezing life in.

»» Snap at your team, your spouse, your kids (over virtually nothing) out of stress.

»» Barely move the needle with a scattershot business development approach.

»» Lose out on work you could have asked for (but didn’t).

»» Worry that fear & self-doubt is what’s really holding you back.

»» Obsess over what you don’t want, uncertain what you DO want.

»» Beat yourself up for not being able to figure out the answers on your own.

»» Overthink (and then second-guess) big decisions.

The good news is that you don’t have to practice – or live – this way.

Whether you’re…

⇒ Looking to trade out emotional exhaustion for actual balance,
⇒ Wanting to make a more meaningful impact through your work,
⇒ Looking to build a more profitable AND fulfilling practice (without burning out),
⇒ Wanting to be promoted to partner (or C-Suite) while staying true to your values, and/or
⇒ Trying to figure out if it’s time to move on…

I’ll help you regain your confidence and retake control of your career so that you can accomplish the things you want both personally and professionally.

Your hustle-and-grind mindset has gotten you far.

But it’s holding you back from the success you want (you can’t hustle your way to happiness).

It’s time to think and do differently.

Rewire • Reconnect • Realign

You need more than another time management technique or productivity hack.  You’ve tried that already… it’s not enough.

Because success is created from the inside-out. And it’s impossible to create the impact you want when plagued by emotional exhaustion, overthinking and self-doubt.

You need someone who understands the unique challenges of the legal profession, has been where you are (and prevailed) and has the expertise to help you uncover your answers, improve your leadership skills and build healthy habits for long-term success. Here’s what that means:

  • Having a clear vision for your career/practice + a simple game plan to get you there.
  • Knowing you can handle anything thrown your way.
  • Quickly calming your mind & controlling your emotions (under any circumstances).
  • Managing your thoughts and being present-in-the-moment (whenever you want).
  • Gracefully saying “no” and prioritizing the things you want.
  • Authentically asking for business (and feeling good about it).
  • Exceling as a leader and practice manager.
  • Confidently speaking up on important topics within your workplace & industry.
  • Having real work-life balance, with time for family, friends, even hobbies.
  • Getting to the next level of where you want to be while staying true to your values.

If you’re tired of feeling like you’re all over the place, work with Heather. Her targeted coaching will help you uncover your answers.

Heather’s cut-to-the-chase, no nonsense approach helped me quickly get to the root of why I was struggling (not just address symptoms) so that I could act on my outside-of-the-box ideas.

I now feel in control of my practice, and am doing more of what I love to do (which doesn’t feel like work).

Partner, McKim Legal

The results of working with Heather speak for themselves… a more than 20x return on investment.

Heather challenged me to see situations & my own actions differently, and her nonjudgmental nature allowed me to openly share my struggles so that I could receive better feedback.

Not only did I achieve my goal of increasing my business by $200,000 (especially impressive given the COVID shutdown) but I was supported to follow through on starting a side business I’d long thought about.

Heather will help you get to the next level without losing yourself in the process.

Jim Chester

Partner, Klemchuk LLP

Hey there, I’m Heather Moulder.

After more than 18 years in BigLaw, I traded in my $2.5MM practice to help lawyers redefine & create success from the inside-out. Because the current way of things isn’t working.

We’re trained to plan for the worst, avoid risk and always put clients first. The problem is we bring this into everything we do (not just how we practice). And if left unchecked, it fuels stress, overthinking and anxiety.

The good news is there’s a better way… Better for you. Better for your clients. Better for the profession. Even better for your pocket book.

Picture of Heather on Couch

Heather will put you on a fast-track out of an overthinking, negative mindset.

She pulled things out of me that I’d never before put to words and provided me with a framework for solving my own problems. Instead of agonizing over decisions again and again, I now have confidence in my decisions because I’m able to align them around my priorities without feeling guilty about it. And I know that I have the tools to course correct whenever needed.

My formerly glass is half-empty mindset isn’t just half-full, it’s overflowing! And I’m doing better at work while putting in less hours (even have more time for business development).

(WHO NEVER PRACTICED LAW OR DID BUT JUST BARELY)

Heather smiling while working

I practiced law for over 18 years and have been in your shoes. And built a thriving ($2.5MM+) practice while staying true to myself…

… Even while navigating my way through 2 pregnancies (and bed rests!), the 2008 financial crisis and a battle with breast cancer.

And I’m on a mission to help you uncover your answers (not just tell you what to do). I combine my coaching wisdom with my business, mindset and leadership skills to help you figure out your missing piece and confidently build the career/practice you want.

The mastermind is a necessary endeavor for learning who you really are as a professional. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves.

The year before I joined Heather’s Mastermind, I started my solo practice and was struggling with how to grow my client base, manage clients and stay on top of the finance side of things all at once.

Presenting my ideas to the group – and the feedback I received – helped sharpen my ideas and bolstered my confidence. They reflected my strengths back to me, giving me insight into how my clients see me and how to be a more valuable asset to them. And Heather helped me assemble the jigsaw puzzle of my thoughts in a way that made sense so that I can put them into practice.

Thanks to this experience, I’m on track to reach (even exceed) my stretch revenue goal and have confidence in my ability to run a business.

Keron Wright

Managing Partner, Wright Legal Services PLLC

I recommend Heather to anyone wanting strategic legal career advice and accountability.

Insightful and astute, Heather’s in the right business. She helped me become more self-aware, reframe my thoughts and adjust plans so that I can take the right actions to effectively reach my goals.

I’ve always believed I needed to figure out everything on my own, but now know that’s not true. Heather was the perfect life raft amid the COVID shutdown that calmed my mind, enabled me to think more strategically, and gave me the fresh perspective that I needed.

Partner, Jackson Walker LLP

We’re a (dark chocolate & merlot) fit if you’re…

Ready To Figure Out What You Want

Instead of obsessing over what you don’t want (and spending too much time doing things you don’t want to be doing), it’s time to go deep. So that you can get the clarity you desire and start taking action to make what you want a reality.

Committed to making a bigger impact

And you know you can (if willing to tap into your fullest potential). It’s time to invest in yourself so that you can regain the inner confidence that will allow you to go after the things you want (otherwise, let go of your big dreams).

Ready to break through the inner glass ceiling (That's Holding You back)

You’re no longer willing to let fear (of what others think & failure) stop you. You’re at a tipping point – face (and overcome) those fears or do nothing. And it’s come to the point where you fear NOT doing anything more than you fear change.

Wanting a fresh perspective from someone who's been there (and prevailed)

Someone who understands the unique pressure (and high-stakes nature) of the legal profession. And who won’t just tell you what to do but will help you uncover what’s best for you (while also sharing what has worked for them and others).

Become A Happily Successful Lawyer

REENERGIZE BOTH PROFESSIONALLY & PERSONALLY

Get the personalized support + expert strategy you deserve. 

[This is a no-obligation call to chat with Heather to determine how to best move forward and get your questions answered.]

The business development intimidation factor that had been holding me back has been eliminated. As a result, I’m more consistent and actually enjoy business development.

I now realize that I’d been sidelining myself assuming that I didn’t have time for proper business development. And that small habits can create big changes. Business development is no longer an ambiguous concept or theory, but consists of real-world strategies that I can implement immediately.

Heather has a unique gift for asking questions that quickly identify the underlying problems and the right solution. She taught me how to ask myself the right questions so that I can solve the toughest of problems.

After working with Heather both individually and within her mastermind, I highly recommend both. You’ll be challenged but you’ll see real results if you put in the work.

 

Kathryn Reid

Partner, Rochelle McCullough

If you’re ready for change and willing to try a new approach, you’ll get tremendous, life-changing benefits from working with Heather.

Heather is direct, supportive and results-driven. She’s in pursuit of your deepest truth so that you can gain clarity about what’s truly important to you and then make the changes you want (like I did!).

Miranda Holmes

Senior Managing Director, First Republic Investment Management

Heather gave me exactly what I needed to get unstuck and start moving in the right direction.

She was a voice of reason, encouraged me to dig deep, and helped me to be more accountable to myself. And sh taught me how to come up with my desired solutions on my own.

I’m now able to balance higher levels of success in my career with a healthy personal life. Coaching with her was life-changing!

Amy Lane

Vice President of Marketing, Lantower Luxury Living

Heather is perfect for working parents struggling to do it all who want tangible solutions to create a more balanced life. She has a special talent for making people’s lives better.

When I first came to Heather, I didn’t know how to say no and my inner voice had become very unkind.

Heather quickly identified the root causes for why I felt so stressed and gave me practical strategies to overcome them. The #1 thing I learned from Heather is how to say no without feeling guilty about it.

I’m now able to carve out time for myself, relax with my family and still work full-time.

Got Questions? Here are answers to the most common questions…

How Big Is The Time Commitment (I'm Already So Busy)?

I’m known for my blunt honesty, and so here’s the truth…

No  matter what you’re here for, there IS a time commitment. After all, you need time + space to figure out what you truly want and go make it happen. And if you’re looking to build your business, your practice won’t grow by itself.

The more time you put in the more you’ll get out of your investment.

But please note: you’ll be building the foundational skills and habits you need that will save you time and energy in the future. And it won’t take up nearly as much time as you think.

Individual coaching sessions (with the exception of laser coaching) last around 45 minutes. Laser coaching is 25-30 minutes long. And the group mastermind meetings last about 90 minutes each.

Why a 12-session commitment (can I choose something less)?

Making big changes (to your habits, your life and your practice) don’t just happen overnight. You need time to dig in, learn and pivot. That’s what this time frame allows for.

There is a 6-session option only for Inside-Out Success Coaching (so please ask if that’s of interest to you). But I recommend the 12-session option, as it gives you the time you need at a better price (it’s the more popular option for a reason).

What's The Process For How This Works?

If you know that you’re interested in applying for the ELEVATE Business-Building Mastermind, apply here. Otherwise, book a call with Heather here to chat about what’s best for you at this time + get your questions answered.

If we both determine to move forward, you’ll receive an invoice and your coaching contract. Once you’ve paid in full and signed your contract, we’ll get started.

What Results Can I Expect?

While I can’t guarantee specific results, I’m 100% committed to you and will always bring my best to our coaching.

That being said, most clients begin to experience results quickly (after all, we’ll initially clarify what you want + how to make it happen in a way you’ve never had before). And it’s not uncommon to experience big changes after only a couple of sessions.

The truth is that there’s no magic bullet. Your results are dependent on your willingness to be 100% open and honest, and the work you put in.

How Do Mastermind Meetings Work? What If I Need To Miss One?

I’ve been there, so understand how hard it is to commit to regular meetings. Clients spring new emergencies on you daily. But I do expect you to show up to 90% of your mastermind meetings (and to let me know well ahead of time if you cannot make one).

Masterminds work incredibly well so long as all members attend regularly. We’ll set up a regular time/date that works for everyone at the outset so that you can block off that time and guard it as if your practice depends upon it (because it does).

What's Your Refund Policy?

For Inside-Out Success Coaching and Next Level Coaching, you can cancel and receive a refund of unused amounts if you determine that it’s not a good fit in accordance with the terms set forth here.

No one has ever requested a refund and I don’t expect you to. That’s why we must chat first. It helps:

  • Me determine whether (and how) I can help you,
  • You to get your questions answered, and
  • Both of us to get an idea of whether we’re a fit.
Is This Right For Me If I'm Not Sure About Staying In Private Practice?

If you’re at the point where you’re not sure that you want to stay in private practice (or even the legal profession) or are too burned out to know what you want, Inside-Out Success Coaching is perfect for you (NOT business coaching).

What About Confidentiality (Especially If My Employer Pays)?

I take my clients’ privacy and confidentiality seriously, and am subject to the ICF Code of Ethics (which can be found here).

Before we begin working together, we’ll sign a coaching agreement that contains specific provisions around confidentiality (that will apply to our arrangement regardless of who pays).
