Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a big consumer of podcasts. For me, podcasts are a significant part of my own ongoing professional development.
As someone who is not a big reader, I have also found podcasting an entertaining way to keep up on law, politics, marketing, and a host of other subjects that interest me including behavioral economics, psychology, mindfulness, true crime, health, and pop culture.
And so I was very excited to stumble upon The Lawyer's Edge Podcast a few years ago. My guest, Elise Holtzman, is the host of that podcast and I’ve now become a regular listener. I was even fortunate enough to be one of Elise’s guests last year.
More importantly, I have been learning a LOT from Elise and her guests about a broad range of career and marketing topics.
Lately, Elise has been focusing a lot of her conversations on the advancement of women in the law and given the depth of Elise’s own knowledge on the subject, I thought it would be great to invite her on to talk about some of the challenges that women face when trying to advance their careers.
We talk about how the pandemic has impacted women, how her coaching helps women and non-women alike to develop the non-practice specific skills they need to be successful.
Elise Holtzman is a former practicing attorney, certified executive coach, and the founder of The Lawyer’s Edge, where she and her coaching team help lawyers become better business developers and leaders.
Elise began her career as a commercial real estate attorney at two AmLaw 100 firms. She brings a deep understanding of the practice of law (and the demands of operating a firm) to her work.
Elise frequently speaks and writes on the subject of business development and career acceleration and as I already mentioned, she is host of a GREAT podcast.
