The Technique


Creative Choices™ is a personalized platform for the 21st Century Lawyer when it comes Looking for Work, or Excelling at Work because it:

Creative Choices™ clients are coached through a 7-step system that combines the best of:  
  • Legal strategy,
  • Conflict resolution, and
  • Business design principles.
Creative Choices™ was designed by a lawyer for a lawyer.  Paulette understands the unique environment in which lawyers operate.  Because decisions shape the course of our careers and the quality of our personal lives, the ability to make sound decisions is a fundamental skill.  

Creative Choices™ slows down thought patterns, so they can be measured against personal values, strengths and aspirations.  By addressing thinking in a systematic way, Creative Choices™ clients are confident when taking action!

The Whiteboard

A whiteboard is key to the process.  Mapping out each step illuminates the bigger goal and calls traps into question, like self-limiting beliefs and false assumptions. Check out the virtual whiteboard of how Creative Choices™ works…




I contacted Paulette after attending a workshop she hosted at my law school.  I was very impressed with her innovative approach to self-branding and reached out to her prior to the articling recruit. I am so glad that I did! Paulette was a valuable resource, offering both guidance and support. She helped me assemble a strong application package that resulted in me having a full slate of articling interviews. She then worked with me to develop my interviewing skills in a manner that incorporated my values and most-importantly felt-true to me. Prior to contacting Paulette, I had received a fair number of interviews for summer positions and was consistently told that I was the firm’s #2 candidate. During my articling interviews—following my coaching sessions with Paulette—I was both complemented on my interviewing style and presented with multiple offers of employment. I am convinced that Paulette’s coaching made the difference! Thank you Paulette for your patience, support, and assistance in helping me become the best interviewing version of myself. Your coaching sessions helped me build my self-confidence in a way that wouldn’t have been possible without you. Thank you for all your help! end-quote
