If you don’t ask, the answer is already No

Written by Allison Wolf

Think about it.

What could make a positive difference for you?

What would you really like to ask for but are holding back on?

Working a day from home?

Taking a sabbatical?

Proposing a shift into a new practice area?

Getting a big bonus?

In the past months, I coached clients to ask for these things and more and guess what?

They were all successful.

They were successful because they accessed the courage to ask for what they needed.

Remember, if you don’t ask the answer is already No.

Reach for the opportunity, don’t give up before even trying.

I am the founder of AWAL and a lawyer coach with over a decade of experience helping clients overcome challenges and achieve success however they define it. In practice this can be many things from helping a law firm partner get more “dad time” with his young family, to coaching a lawyer on the business development strategy, skills, and implementation to grow her legal practice. After a career in legal marketing and business development with law firms in Beijing, New York, and Vancouver, I was trained as a coach in 2004 at Royal Roads University and coach clients from across North America.
