Our Center for Public Service Law is lucky to have a new professional development coach joining us for the next several months while Assistant Director Aline Carton-Listfjeld is on parent leave. Amy Kosterlitz will be with us a few days a week to meet with students and to help them plot their career paths! After several years of practice in both non profit, governmental and private firm sectors, Amy sought training to become a professional development coach and now has her own private coaching practice. About her work she says:
“I am a coach and consultant working with attorneys, other professionals and leaders in business and non-profits on professional development, leadership and team-building. I assist clients to envision and realize their desired futures—be it taking a career to the next level or in a new direction, improving leadership presence, finding a better work-life balance, or navigating career/life challenges and transitions. My thirty years of experience in law practice, law firm management, advising leaders in corporations and non-profits, and leading interdisciplinary teams give me the background and perspective to assist my clients navigate challenges and reach their goals. My coaching certification training deepened my understanding of career and life transition cycles, the interplay of one’s various roles and responsibilities, the importance of aligning work with one’s core values, the characteristics of good communicators and leaders, and strategies for navigating change.”
If you are a 2L this year who worked with Aline in the past, Amy is available to help you. You can make appointments with her through Symplicity.
