BridgeField Group (formerly PCT Solutions, Inc.) is a professional development coaching and training organization. We have been helping attorneys, accountants, and other licensed professionals succeed as they define it for more than 13 years.
Working in extremely competitive and mature markets, our clients must do more than prove their competence in order to be successful. They must source, strengthen, and maintain multiple business relationships while simultaneously practicing their craft and trying to achieve “work-life” balance. Into this milieu, we bring individually tailored professional development, inclusive diversity coaching that works, and relational business development systems designed to play to each client’s unique interests and strengths.
Our Clients’ Stories
Chris is passionate about coaching. He believes people long to improve their relationship skills and he is willing to help them realize their highest potential. I’ve observed him in action as the consummate coach, leading people to discover abilities and talents they didn’t know they possessed. His presentation skills are exceptional, as is his knowledge of relationship coaching. It is a pleasure to know and work with Chris because of his character, compassion and commitment.
“I have used BridgeField Group™ services both in my prior firm and my current firm. As a member of the executive committee in my prior firm, we utilized the BridgeField Group™ for team building and strategic planning, initially at a shareholder retreat and later for all associates in the firm. Personally I have used BridgeField Group™ services both for business development coaching as well as for lateral integration into my new firm. The BridgeField Group™ has been instrumental in my success in both endeavors. Both personally and professionally I have been very happy with the BridgeField Group™, and highly recommend them.”
Chris was my professional development coach for about a year and it was a valuable and rewarding experience. Chris provided clear strategies for business development that were easy to implement and helped me to become more accountable in my focus on growing a legal practice. Not only did he help on the business development side, but he provided guidance on navigating the various aspects of a law firm environment. Chris is personable, energetic, smart, creative, and is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Chris as a coach to anyone.
Chris counseled me on business development strategies when I was in private practice. I was particularly impressed with how he first conducted a detailed assessment of my strengths and weaknesses, and then tailored his advice to leverage my strengths, rather than rotely urging a one-size-fits-all approach. He’s also a great guy. Highly recommended!
I really enjoyed working with Chris. He takes the time to get know his clients and tailors his coaching to each client’s strengths and preferred approach to marketing. As an attorney with years of experience in private practice, Chris can relate to the challanges we face. I would recommend his services to any attorneys who wants to take their client development skills to the next level.
Chris is a great coach; his style is personable and conversational.
The best part of working with Chris was his ability to assist in
identifying my strengths and then working with me to develop a
strategy that is based on those strengths and comfortable and natural to me to apply in the real world of developing new business and expanding existing business opportunities.
Chris is a top-notch pro who brought commitment and results to our team. His coaching assistance far exceeded expectations. If you are looking for candid, engaged and effective business coaching, call Chris.
Great program with great insight from the coaches. It definitely helped open my eyes and change my perspective and approach to business development for the better.
As Director of Technical Training at Ryan, I attended Chris’ workshops and I also saw, first-hand, the positive results of his professional coaching. He is an outstanding communicator, teacher and coach. I highly recommend him as a professional development coach, trainer, and speaker.
Chris was very insightful and effective in identifying obstacles that were holding me back in business development and how to best overcome them. Chris focused on relationships and not “networking.” Despite my initial skepticism of the process, thanks to Chris, I found I could actually turn business development into something fun that I enjoyed.
I can attest to Chris’ intuition in regards to immediate professional decisions as well as to long-term career path objectives. I continue to be impressed with Chris’ energy and means of communicating real life issues in a manner that makes sense.”
I very much enjoyed my time working with Chris. The coaching and
advice he gave me was current, practical, innovative and easy to
implement. He also has a very personal style, which makes working with
him an absolute breeze. I have no hesitation recommending him to any
lawyer who wants to take their practice to the next level.
Chris provided invaluable guidance and support to help me develop my own personal approach to client relations. He definitely gets that each lawyer has an individual style with unique talents and goals and coaches to achieve maximum effectiveness.
After the collapse of a large law firm at which I had worked for 20 years, I needed to mobilize my contacts and leverage my strengths to grow my book of business at a new firm. As my business development coach, Chris guided me through that process, providing valuable advice, strong accountability, and terrific encouragement. Since that time, I have often applied what I learned from Chris to my business development efforts. I now have a vibrant practice with work spilling over that keeps several others fully occupied as well. I high commend Chris to any lawyer interested in rejuvenating and growing his or her practice.”
Chris helps you find your success and achieve your goals by having you
help others find their success and achieve their goals. This makes
business development fun–and most importantly it makes business
development fulfilling and meaningful. I highly recommend Chris as a
coach, as a trainer, and as a friend.
Chris is a natural communicator, an excellent character evaluator and a valuable mentor, who uses his talents to help others. With his thorough knowledge of me and my abilities, he pointed out new possibilities and opened new horizons for my career progress. Being myself a native speaker of both Bulgarian and Greek languages, Chris helped me understand my value in the legal market by giving me specific references, pointing marketing techniques and explaining networking communication to promote my career. I am ready for my next career adventure with excitement and confidence, because of Chris!
I think the entire team was great. I think it would be great to consider incorporating some of this client centric BD training as part of the HBU curriculum.
Chris Kirby is an outstanding coach and trainer for lawyers wanting to improve and gain control over their practices. He has experience in law and business and that practical experience benefits the people and firms he works with. I served on a State Bar committee with him and worked on some seminar programs with him. Chris did what he said he would do and did it well. He has a great sense of humor and a communication style that easily connects with everyone. I highly recommend Chris Kirby for people wanting to improve, control and expand their businesses.
Most lawyers are good at scheduling lunch meetings, inviting potential clients for basketball games or golfing, but not many lawyers are good at business development. Chris is a true expert on coaching lawyers and business people on client development. I have learned from Chris the diciplines, detailed steps, and more importantly, finding niches and skills in myself. Working with Chris enabled me to effectively develop business in my field.
This was a great program. I hope the firm continues our relationship with Chris and his firm and makes this opportunity available to other rising partners.
Upon my return to private practice, Chris was masterful in drilling down not only to the expertise I had gained during my time as General Counsel for Governor Rick Perry, but also to how I most enjoy applying my skills. With his guidance I have made a transition back to the practice of law that focuses on the things that make me want to jump out of bed in the morning.
Chris is uncommonly perceptive at reading people and situations – I
have always given careful heed to his advice and counsel. He is
skillful in so many areas – from intellectual to practical, from
handling deeply personal issues to thinking strategically about
complex business and legal questions. I would work with him again in a
At a critical juncture in my career, Chris not only helped me with the skills of business development but also with subtle systems. He did not ask me to write a marketing plan that I would never look at. Rather, we worked on skills, strategies and tactics that resulted in wins for me, my firm, and my clients. He lives his mantra – it’s all about the relationship – and though our relationship began on purely a business foundation, by the time we quit working together we’d become friends. I highly recommend Chris as a coach.
On my computer desk is a post-it with WWCS, “What Would Chris Say?” I now use that as a filter to process marketing opportunities and ideas. Whenever I hesitate or look for an excuse, I think WWCS and lean into it rather than stepping out of the box.
It was helpful to be able to talk through business development challenges and opportunities with someone outside the firm.
Chris and his team have an innate understanding of business development,
business collaboration, and how to measure the success of planning
efforts. With an extensive background in marketing and business development, skill training,
professional development, and coaching, they are uniquely qualified and highly
effective at increasing the performance and results of business
professionals and sales executives.
