Wendy Billie - Lawyer Career Coach

Wendy Billie, lawyer career coach, is an in-house coach with a Fortune 50 company. She has a great deal of experience in executive outplacement -- helping clients to figure out their next career move -- as well as in helping clients get to the next level in their current careers.  She has also provided advice and career counseling to MBA and undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota.

Wendy has a master's degree in Human Resources, which provides her with a great background from which to give you with resume advice, negotiating skills, and interviewing advice.  She took steps to reinvent myself a few years ago because she was stuck in her own career.  She left a high-paying job as a traveling occupational therapist, and she sought out a coach, read books, took career tests, and discovered who she was as her identity related to career.

She used her skills and life learning in her own reinvention process. She is now in a career that fits her and pays even better than the one she worried about giving up.  Career coaching has been a true passion of Wendy's and a way to continuously challenge others and reinvent herself in the process.

What Will brings to the coach-client relationship is wisdom, compassion, renewal of self-worth, accountability, and strategies for moving past creative blocks.  He also integrates time and centering space to help you creatively reflect deeply about your life purpose and goals.  This process taps into the creative power of what you already know.

ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO DEVELOP YOUR PRACTICE ?
If you are a lawyer, you have invested years in developing specialized skills. You learn that to build a successful practice you need to do more than offer your clients excellent service and wait for referrals.
You need to step back and develop a marketing plan and treat your practice like a business. Create a vision, set goals, package your services and create a marketing schedule.

I'm Morris and I love helping people succeed, and challenging them to be the best they can be. I coached my former h.s. basketball team to four straight championships. In addition, I offer you the following:
  • My Unique Background - I have over 21 years of hands on business experience and a Ph.D. in Psychology.
  • Marketing Savvy - I have particular expertise in helping to develop a "Core Marketing Message" for the foundation of a marketing strategy.
  • Run Leadership Workshops - I have developed and run leadership training programs in collaboration with a Harvard professor.

  • Give your potential clients a compelling reason to buy from you
    Learn how to focus on the benefits you offer your clients. Get the interest of your prospective clients once you have their attention. Convert interest into commitment.
    I will help you implement a realistic marketing plan through effective step by step goal setting.
    I am eager to help by working as your coaching partner.
