Inspiring Career Change Example 


This is an example of a career change programme for a senior lawyer who wanted a new career that interested them to enjoy until they eventually retired.  


Second career to retirement - Jenny 


Jenny had set up and run her own successful law firm for over 30 years and was one of the first women to be a managing partner in the legal profession. She heard about Energise as a result of reading one of our articles (see 'Life after Managing partner' )


Ready for a change, with the legal profession becoming a legal market, and a different outlet for her many talents and interests, including public speaking and learning, she far from wanting to retire but ready for a new challenge, the question was what. 


Like many lawyers, she had only ever known the law, and so the prospect of doing something different was daunting. Like many lawyers, she found it hard to see her skills, qualities and experience and where they were transferable. We shared ideas for new ventures - being self-employed all her life; Jenny knew that employment was not for her.


We helped her to identify her values, what motivated her, her needs and wants. Together we identified a broad range of second career options from evolutionary to revolutionary, and how to screen them. We also helped Jenny think about her unique brand, how to market herself and introduced her to useful contacts, resources and networks.   Jenny found coaching gave her an invaluable supportive and confidential sounding board to think through her options and become more confident and competent to create the changes she sought. 


Like many clients, coaching gave more than anticipated. After many years in the law, with the pressure and measurement of fees that come with the role and leading a firm;  Jenny also uncovered a desire to enjoy creative pursuits and enjoy the journey as well as focusing on the destination


"Working with Rachel has given me the opportunity to move forward and the support to look at all the various options that are available.  She has also given me the tools to work on myself in the future when change occurs. Thank you for your work which has been very valuable"
