Mission & Philosophy

A video message from Sheryl Odentz
Founder and President


Progress in Work helps attorneys and other high-level professionals progress in work. The goal is to help these professionals make seamless career transitions to other settings inside or outside of the practice of law or grow their books of business. Progress in Work also seeks to maximize the unique strengths of each individual to increase their productivity and enable them to become better leaders within their current organizations.


As far as Progress in Work’s philosophy, we believe that every professional has their own unique circumstances and stories, which is why we work one-on-one so we can address each of their situations privately and discreetly. We identify the resources needed to help clients succeed in the present and future using tried-and-true, cutting-edge career/work assessment tools (if necessary) as well as proven strategies. We teach each professional the career management skills and tools needed to manage their own careers independently and help realize their full potential.
