We recently recorded our very first podcast, “Demystifying coaching”, in which development coach and former patent attorney Karen Crawley explains some of the basics about the coaching process.

What does coaching actually involve? Who’s it for? How does it work? And what can it achieve? Karen’s advice is a must for anyone who’s wondering whether coaching might help them develop their career path.

One thing’s for sure: coaching is definitely not for people who are failing in some way: rather, it’s to help them achieve their full potential, for instance when they reach a turning point in their career, or need inspiration and insight to help them establish clear goals for themselves and overcome the obstacles that are holding them back. So this podcast is relevant to IP professionals of all genders, in all roles and at virtually all levels of their careers.

You can access the podcast here, and a transcript here.Β And for some further reading, Karen has recommended the following links:


If there are other topics you’d like us to create podcasts on, please let us knowΒ – and keep an eye on our Resources page for future recordings. Our Women in IP community also plan to organise some coaching events with Karen in the near future.
