Steve Seckler: Coaching Superstar Lawyers

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Steve Seckler discuss:

  • Steve’s professional journey from law school to coaching. 
  • Why Steve is well-suited to coaching lawyers, and how to know if a coach is right for you. 
  • Challenges lawyers face in their own personal development. 
  • Results that happen when coaches coach and the players play. 
  • Investing in coaching and changing the way you think about money. 


Key Takeaways:

  • Hiring a coach can help you to fill in the skill gaps that you might have, and help you to identify where they are if you don’t think you have any. 
  • Working with a coach can help you to focus your messaging and better articulate what you do that nobody else does. 
  • Communicating outside of work-related tasks only is key to understanding how the firm works and building your relationship skills. 
  • Your greatest insights will come when you work one-on-one with someone. There is a level of safety that allows for greater vulnerability. 


“Not everybody is coachable, they have to be willing to be coached. And, as you and I know, the best people to coach are actually the superstars.” —  Steve Seckler
