15 pages of notes from 60 minutes of coaching

“I’ve been frustrated, but I didn’t know what to do about it. I didn’t have a plan. And I didn’t have anyone to talk to about it. This gives me some direction, and that’s a lot of what I needed.​ You’ve given me a lot to chew on.​ It was really helpful just to start to put pen to paper on a lot of these things. I’ve vigorously scribbled down notes—I have 15 pages in front of me—so that I can go through your suggested exercises.​”

the best version of myself and my skills

“Hi Shauna, I hope you are doing well. We worked together in May 2017 on my résumé and cover letter for pursuing in-house attorney positions. You were incredibly helpful and I am so happy to report that I received a position as Deputy General Counsel in June at a fast growing startup. It has been a wonderful experience and your assistance in presenting the best version of myself and my skills was instrumental in obtaining this position. So thank you! I was [also] recently informed by the CEO that I will soon be promoted to General Counsel (yay).”

I’m excited

“​This résumé and this experience are helping to propel me forward. I’ve had to get over some of my hangups that lawyers are just supposed to put their heads down and work. I’m changing how I think about myself so that I’m now thinking and talking about my value and the impact that I’ve had. The résumé was excellent and I’m excited.”

a very actionable framework

“​This is a great framework. It’s a very actionable framework. It’s technically sound and makes all the sense of the world. I appreciate having a process that’s not overwhelming and will help me start to narrow down my options so that I can start to make a decision instead of just floundering around. This is very helpful.”

a dramatic improvement

“​This is incredibly helpful. I’m watching you like, ‘These are all great ideas, I wonder why I never thought of that.’ I’ve done a lot of reading résumés and interviewing at [top ten 10 law firm], and I have to say this is a dramatic improvement. It's much more organized.​”
