Many coaches today are hired by companies to coach members of their legal departments; that is also part of Catherine’s practice. Some coaches have a preexisting contract with the company, and thus have a level of responsibility to the company that complicates their duty of confidentiality to the lawyer being coached.
Unlike those coaches, Catherine does not maintain an ongoing relationship with an organization that could compromise her ability to maintain the confidentiality required by the individual she is coaching. Catherine is also often retained by individuals who may want to keep their coaching private from their current employers.
Clients hire Catherine in part because of her commitment to total confidentiality. Whether working for an individual or hired to coach members of a legal department, she follows the stringent ethics and confidentiality requirements set forth by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
