This review is from: The Creative Lawyer: A Practical Guide to Authentic Professional Satisfaction (Paperback)
Michael Melcher's book, The Creative Lawyer, is both an inspirational guide and a toolkit on how to find job satisfaction. The approach he outlines works: start with your values to create a personal vision statement, determine your areas of competencies, identify what you need to learn and explore new areas of growth, then craft a positioning statement to present yourself to the market. Melcher lays this out as a process and one that should be on-going. He also gives effective ways to network and use your pool of friends and colleagues to help you in your pursuit of a fulfilling job. At the end of each chapter is a reference list of articles and website that were very helpful. As an executive coach who works with people in career transition, I found the book extremely useful - the exercises work. However, I am not a lawyer and most of my clients are not lawyers, nor do they want to become one. So, why the title when the content appeals to anyone in search of a new career? In spite of this, The Creative Lawyer is just what it says it is: A Practical Guide to Authentic Professional Satisfaction.
