We understand individual layoffs can be a time of stress for both you and your employee. We can help to support and coach your employee in successfully concluding their current chapter and moving into the next stage of their career. In addition, having outplacement as a part of your severance package can help firms retain their reputation within the industry.
Throughout the years we have had many conversations with candidates and managers which concern difficult times such as divorce, struggles with children, depression, meeting expectations of lawyers, dealing with difficult colleagues, etc. Regular individual counselling not only helps support staff in times of emotional distress, but also helps firms improve their bottom line.
Building an effective and productive team is fundamental to the success of your firm. We can help build strategies revolving around engagement, fine-tuning communication skills, developing leadership competencies, conflict resolution, all in order to ultimately create a family-like environment for your staff.
"Studies reveal that too many legal professionals experience anxiety, chronic stress and various other forms of burnout on almost a day-to-day basis (ABA, 2017). I am determined to be part of the solution and help those working in the legal industry.
At times, managers can be targeted by employees as being part of the problem, whereas I can be perceived as more “neutral” which encourages change to be possible. One of my first loves is to listen and I’ve been trained as well in deliberate strategies to move a person forward to a more positive place. Life can be hard at times. I have struggled with chronic depression and anxiety as well and due to my personal experience and all that it entailed, my mission is to help others in their time of need."

"Diane was very approachable, non-judgmental, and easy to talk to. It can be scary (during periods of big life changes) and Diane was able to listen to me in a non-judging way and hold space for the grieving process (which comes with leaving a job or career). Diane has an easy manner about her and a great sense of humour and she made it easy for me to express the game of emotions I was feeling at the time, in order to move on. I am happy to recommend Diane as a Coach."
