Changing Jobs is Not a Solution

When I started my first job out of law school, I worried that I'd made a terrible mistake. It wasn't the billable targets, or how to practice in the real world, it was the stress and uncertainty. I thought changing jobs would be the solution. But without the right tools, I took my stress with me. And just as I made that change in the summer of 2001, the world was about to turn upside-down.

Crisis Makes Opportunity

Within the first few months of starting my new job, the Enron financial scandal, the attacks of 9/11 on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, and the telecom bubble threw the world (and our company) into chaos. I found myself in a high-stress fire sale of crown-jewel assets to generate cash to make payroll and pay the light bill. From the eye of the storm, I saw people frozen by stress, or fleeing to other jobs. I also saw a few who seemed to be immune from stress and doing the best work of their lives. Guess which group I wanted to be in? I just had to figure out the secret.

Leading is inevitable.

Suffering is optional.

What Didn’t Work

I didn’t have a character flaw that resulted in my hair falling out from stress, failed relationships, overwork, and feelings of being overwhelmed. It was stress and burnout. But what if stress and burnout was just something I hadn't been taught how to manage in law school? I tried workshops, self-help books, positive thinking. When those only provided short-term relief, I turned to everything from "yoga for lawyers" and acupuncture to "suck it up, buttercup." But the breakthrough came when I started working on ways to support my step-son who had been diagnosed with a severe developmental disability.

Discovering the Secret

My theory was this: if our kid had been an elite athlete, we would be managing anything that hurt his ability to perform. And so we worked with him (and ourselves) on the influencers, beliefs, stressors, and goals that allowed him to be at his best.Which got me thinking… the same strategies might help me perform at my best. I built a system for myself to use the secrets that would become the Happy At Law HABIT. As I used the system for myself, I grew more confident in how I delivered my advice. I became immune to game-playing from across the negotiating table. I found myself being assigned to fascinating deals. I turned my in-house clients into raving fans. But best of all, I began to thrive while practicing law.

Mastery Over Stress

I started sharing what I'd learned with colleagues and clients. I discovered it was possible to boil everything down to a simple, repeatable system. Building mastery over stress is a skill set that can be learned. What makes Angie Hooper Coaching different is we go beyond generic “stress management” and teach our clients how to replace stress with resilience, confidence, and fearlessness. We show our clients how to eliminate their stress as it occurs, and help them make themselves "burnout-proof". I'm proud of the work we do to support our clients in building their Leadership HABIT from the inside-out.

It's heartbreaking to see good professionals give up on leadership roles or their careers because stress has worn them down. Especially when we have a gentle but effective strategy that works, even in high-stress and high-stakes environments. Our strategy works because we start from the inside-out. Plenty of "experts" want to show leaders how to deny their intuition or ignore their empath super-powers. I guess that's the difference between me and them… I want you to THRIVE through leadership so that your career becomes the adventure of a lifetime.

Angie is a wonderful and adept coach.

She was able to get me to gain new and more empowering perspectives on old and useless beliefs and to reframe them into strengths. Her gentle, lighthearted, patient and supportive approach made her a pleasure to work with.
