In this role, she creates and leads training programs for the company’s 1,200+ employees. In addition to practicing law as in-house counsel, Candice works as a consultant, trainer, and coach for lawyers, other professionals, and their organizations on issues relating to workplace engagement, professional development, and career satisfaction and transition. In 2011, she founded Candice Reed Consulting, which offers a variety of services – from individual coaching to workshops, associate training programs and recruiting and placement services. Candice is a frequent speaker on topics ranging from attorney wellbeing to cultivating business opportunities through positive relationships and capitalizing on employees’ strengths to increase their workplace engagement and professional success.

In 2008, while continuing to work full-time, Candice also began studying positive psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. Positive psychology is the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and organizations to thrive, and it serves as the basis for Candice’s coaching and training programs.
