Anna Rappaport is a former lawyer who has been coaching since 1999, and training other coaches since 2003. She assists both American and international lawyers to create business development plans suited to their strengths and preferences; find the time and energy to implement these plans; and enhance their business communications. Anna’s approach is distinct from that of many coaches in the legal arena because she has been trained as an ontological coach, a method grounded in philosophical inquiry. This approach tends to creates deeper and more lasting change than other forms of coaching by helping clients shift not only their actions, but more fundamentally, their perceptions and interpretations. Anna specializes in helping lateral hires, partners who have lost their mojo, and attorneys who are committed to leading their organizations and communities. She works with clients both in person and by phone. She has lived in Japan, Thailand and, most recently, Turkey, where she coached Turkish lawyers and taught corporate law at Yeditepe University. Anna attended The George Washington University Law School and is a member of the Maryland and Washington D.C. bars.
