– Your future self, after applying the Inside-Out Success Framework

Lawyer Career Coaching & Leadership Coaching

with Heather Moulder, J.D.

FROM THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN, YOUR LEGAL CAREER IS A SUCCESS.

But there’s a disconnect between how others see you and how you actually feel…

Tired of the internal tug-of-war between your drive to excel and need for self-care (worrying that balance isn’t compatible with a successful legal career).

Smothered by the daily busy-ness of calls/emails and management headaches (that don’t feel important) – the passion you once felt for your career is gone.

Frustrated by how hard you find it to say “no” (even when you know you could – and should).

Wondering if law firm life is really for you yet questioning whether going in-house just means trading one set of headaches for another set (you’d like even less).

Knowing that getting promoted (to partnership or that coveted GC position) requires improved EQ and leadership skills but confused about where to even start.

Worried that work has completely taken over and you’re destined for a future of just barely squeezing life in.

You are not alone. According to a recent ALM Survey:

50% of surveyed attorneys regularly feel self-doubt and lack a sense of accomplishment. And over 60% feel overwhelmed and/or exhausted.

Statistics further show that over half of all practicing attorneys report feeling stressed and/or anxious most of the time. Like most lawyers, you probably thought the stress, anxiety and overthinking would get better as you progressed up the proverbial career ladder. But it hasn’t (it feels like it’s getting worse). You’ve come to realize that change must start from within, and you’re wondering whether – and how – lawyer career coaching could help.

Imagine taking control of your thoughts, your time, your career, your life in a way that enables you to prioritize the things that are important to you and achieve the success + impact you want.

Whether or not you’re…

o1

Looking for balanced success as a lawyer.

Without settling for something less than what you want in both law and life.

o2

Wanting to improve leadership skills.

So that you can get that law firm partnership promotion or GC position you’ve long wanted.

o3

Wanting to get your motivation back.

With a clear path forward for getting yourself and your legal career where you want it to be.

Inside-Out Success Lawyer Career Coaching will enable you to retake control of your career (and life!), regain your confidence and accomplish the things you want without stress or overthinking.

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).

Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig LLP

Thanks to Heather’s coaching and hands-on tips, I got my long-coveted GC position.

Heather helped me not only improve my leadership and communication skills but also realize I wasn’t giving myself enough credit for my skills and abilities.

This boosted my self-confidence, which was transformative.

The thing I love most about working with Heather is that she is empathetic and meets you where you are at BUT she doesn’t let you stay there.

Tara Young

General Counsel, Spearmint Energy

Coaching with Heather is worth it. To make a mindset shift you need someone who is going to challenge your current way of thinking, and Heather does that. She tells the truth even when it’s not what you want to hear.

When I first came to Heather, I was having a hard time juggling work and family commitments while building my practice. My to-do list was overwhelming and I was frustrated that I was living in a way that didn’t match up with what was important to me.

The biggest change through coaching was how I prioritized. I learned that priorities change over time and that setting boundaries is an essential part of prioritizing.

Heather helped me understand that there isn’t a quick time management fix to becoming more balanced, everyone has to make trade-offs (that is life), and it is on me to decide what to prioritize and what to let go of. The key is to be intentional.

Thanks to our work together, I’m finally going in the direction I want to go.

Introducing The Inside-Out Success Framework

Rewire • Reconnect • Realign

    You’ve tried almost every time management technique and productivity hack in the book and know that’s not enough. But what is the answer?

    It’s time to start thinking and doing differently. 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 a partner 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,

    Build healthy habits for long-term success, and

    Improve your emotional intelligence & leadership skills.

    That is where the Inside-Out Success Framework comes into play…

    7

    Rewire Your Mind

    Utilize evidence-based tools to:

    ▶ Reframe your thoughts.

    ▶ Change how you relate to yourself & others.

    ▶ Train your mind to be calm + present.

    You’ll exponentially improve EQ while asking “what’s possible?” instead of “what if I fail?”.

    Reconnect to Your Values

    Reconnect to your inner values & strengths to:

    ▶ Get clarity around what you want (& why).

    Have a roadmap for success on your terms.

    Redefine success, aligned to your values.

    You’ll feel more you again, and motivated to do the work to make what you want a reality.

    Realign Your Life

    Take intentional action to:

    ▶ Proactively realign around your priorities.

    ▶ Say no with grace & confidence.

    Measure success based on input (not just output).

    You’ll improve both production and results (but without having to do more, push harder).

    How Lawyer Career Coaching Using The Inside-Out Success Framework Translates Into Your Day-To-Day:

    Control of Your Time

    Allocate your time to actual priorities, including: time for family, long-term strategic planning & even hobbies.

    Healthy Confidence

    Have faith in your decision-making, stop overthinking and know you can handle anything that is thrown your way.

    A Calm Mind

    Know how to manage your thoughts & master your emotions (which means feeling calm, grounded and positive).

    Strong Boundaries

    Have clear boundaries & regularly enforce them with confidence + grace.

    Inspiring Leadership

    Get noticed for your stellar emotional intelligence & interpersonal skills.

    Foster Self-Care

    Consistently prioritize your wellbeing through healthy, flexible habits.

     

    Thanks to Heather I am the happiest I have ever been in my legal career.

    Heather is a curious and attentive listener. She asks the right questions, listening carefully to responses so as to properly frame the next question in a way that guides her clients to make their own choices.

    I was initially concerned that coaching would put me into a circle of aimless questions, leaving me to second-guess myself. That’s not how it works with Heather. Her questions guide me every step of the way to being decisive and confident in my decisions. I never feel alone.

    Owner & Principal Attorney, Schulz Entertainment Law PC

    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).

    Monica Narvaez

    Of Counsel / Associate GC, McKim Legal /Loloi, Inc.

    Heather will challenge you to see situations – and your actions – in a new light.

    Heather’s nonjudgmental nature allowed me to openly share my struggles so that I could receive better feedback and then organize my ideas into actionable plans for achieving my goals.

    She is perfect for attorneys who want someone who understands their challenges and can help them get to the next level without losing themselves 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 law firm book of business to start a new business as a lawyer career and leadership coach. My mission is to help lawyers redefine & create success from the inside-out. Because the current way of things isn’t working.

    Which makes sense when you consider that we’re trained to plan for the worst & avoid risk. If left unchecked we bring this into how we live, fueling stress, overthinking and anxiety.

    The good news?

    There’s a better way… For you, your clients, the profession and (yep) your pocket book too.

    Your starting point is to take full-out control of the one thing you actually can control… YOU. That is what Inside-Out Success Lawyer Career Coaching (and my Inside-Out Success Framework) is designed to help you do.

    I’m not like most lawyer career coaches…

      Who never practiced law or did but just barely.

        After transforming from burned out to balanced, and then building a thriving practice of my own (navigating through 2 pregnancies, the 2008 financial crisis, and a battle with breast cancer), I realized I had created a customizable framework for balanced success as a lawyer.

        And I’m on a mission to help you achieve the success + impact you want within your version of balanced success. My goal is to help you uncover your answers, not just tell you what to do (because that wouldn’t be what’s best for you).

        Heather is perfect for working parents struggling to do it all who want tangible solutions for creating 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.

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

        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…

        You need time + space to figure out what you truly want and go make it happen. Which means there is an obvious time commitment.

        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.

        Most of the “work” happens between sessions within your mind, as you figure things out and implement strategies we’ve discussed on our calls.

        Our meetings last about 45-50 minutes in length.

        NOTE: all sessions must be used within 12 months of your purchase date.

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

        Making big changes like this don’t happen overnight. You need time to dig in, discover, be curious and try things out. You also need time to develop new habits (which also don’t happen overnight).

        The 12-session commitment also sets your mentality up for the work ahead (knowing it’s a commitment of 6+ months to get to where you want to be).

        But take a look at the testimonials above to see why this commitment is worth it.

        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.

        What's Your Refund Policy?

        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 effectively determine whether partnering together is a fit.

        But should you decide – for whatever reason – to cancel after getting started I do have a refund policy (which you’ll find here).

        What's The Process For How This Works?

        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 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).
