Lieve Van den Broeck
The world of justice evolves constantly. That’s a no-brainer. I want to ensure that legal professionals make that change too by changing their thinking first.
I believe in coaching by confrontation. Voicing the unsaid makes legal professionals think, feel and thus act differently. Their lives change for the better and because they hold a key position in life, so does society.
Don’t pretend I am an outsider with a pony tail and a dream. I am part of the pack.
In 1996 I started working as an attorney in a top 10 Law Firm in Belgium. In 2001 I joined a multinational as an inhouse counsel. That’s where I transformed myself into a leader in law. Not because I was itching for it but because a burn-out was no option. That daily torture called pressure from business, numbers, laws, bosses, ethics, colleagues, competitors, society, media, politics, family, friends… That’s when I got concerned of the collateral pressure put on those at the bitter end of the support chain: the outside counsel.
In 2009 I decided to make your pressure my business: I support legal professionals to become leaders in law.
While still getting my hands dirty as a legal interim manager, I navigate this triadic relationship “business-inhouse-outside” in different business contexts and I share that learning with you in a coaching context: how to become a preferred business partner? The wait is over. Let’s start marshalling your energy.
I hold a coach certificate from Coaching & Co based upon neuro linguistic programming (nlp). As a coach I focus on law firms and the Belgian Judicial Training Institute (magistrates and court staff). Dutch is my mother tongue. French, English and German still have secrets for me.
