“For months and months, I kept pushing off my goal of implementing systems and software to organize my firm’s back office. After just one month…mission accomplished! The journey was fun and invigorating thanks to the accountability and Melissa’s persistent yet nurturing coaching and encouragement. Now, I am on to an even loftier goal and in light of last month’s result, I have no doubt I can tackle this bigger challenge.”
You immediately have access to step-by-step videos that will set you up for success before you begin your 30-day Sprint.
We all show up, every weekday, on a video call to report on our progress.
After we help you identify the one result you’re going to create during the Sprint, you’ll be paired with other owner-attorneys who want to absolutely crush their priority list in a way that’s nearly impossible without “public” accountability. (Daily tracker completed for you by our team!)
Everyday during the Sprint you will report on something you’ve learned about how you operate. These lessons stack on each other so that you leave the month with a better understanding of how you work best. Our team bundles and delivers your Lessons Learned to you at the end of the month.
You get access to our private members forum. There you can take the conversation deeper with other members, ask our team questions, access replays, recordings, and find all logistical information you’ll need for the month.
These hour-long calls are designed to tackle any barriers you run into as you work to master the skills you’re learning. Melissa’s accountability and coaching will help you make meaningful breakthroughs and power you forward.
We host a live workshop as a deep-dive into one specific topic. You’ll walk away with actionable intelligence to immediately implement in your firm. Topics vary, covering critical areas of positioning your business and your mind for growth.
Great question! Once enrolled, you’ll have access to resources designed to help you choose your “one thing.” You also may find it helpful to see the projects other owner-attorneys have completed in Sprints…
Yes! The Daily Accountability Calls happen every weekday, Monday through Friday, for that calendar month.
The calls are 30-minutes max, straight to the point, and are fuel for the major headway that participants make. In fact, after the month ends, they usually say that they miss the daily calls!
Participants may have to miss a day or two because of last minute responsibilities, court, etc. On the days you’re unable to attend the call, you simply email us your report ahead of time for that day and we’ll enter it into the tracker.
Outside of a Sprint the investment for this level of support is $5,500! Also, the groups are a great way to add community. The participants in a Sprint are usually very tight-knit by the end of the month.
“This program helped me gain control over my schedule by putting time into planning up-front. Scheduling your activities and requiring yourself to do things sequentially is a superpower. When you spend more time on the process, researching, and outlining, the actual tasks go by very quickly. I’ve seen so many projects go from idea to completion because of this program.”
Melissa Shanahan founded Velocity Work after several years at a consulting firm focused on the growth of private practices all across the U.S. After coaching over 350 doctors, dentists, and lawyers – she chose to narrow her services to attorneys only and started Velocity Work.
“One of the things that we’ve learned is, in a sense, how to be the CEO, how to be the person who can look and see that what you’ve created is working. And then you can have the vision to see where you want to go and make a plan for how you get there.”
“Part of accountability is getting pushed and having people clarify stuff with you. I know that the lessons that I learned ended up being a lot stronger, because Melissa and others in the group helped me clarify and revise that lesson.”
“During the Sprint month, I’ve honed in on a result and not just the tasks so I know what to work on, how to best approach the project as a whole, and how to stay accountable to myself and my work style. With Melissa’s personal and group guidance, I’ve made major improvements in how I look at and value my time so I can be accountable to honoring my firm’s core values.”
“The accountability part is pretty big. But that’s only part of it. The other is the coaching part. What’s the problem? Why didn’t you do it? How can you deal with that? You need both of them.”
