Essential Leadership Training for Managing Partners

with the MiRo Assessment

Why Managing Partners Need Leadership Training

The future success of law firms today is unclear and uncertain. We know the environment is tough - both on the lack of clarity surrounding the development and delivery of legal services, as well as on the uncertain economic front for the firm and its clients. Leaders are constantly being asked to deliver legal work alongside their leadership tasks.

According to Darwin, it is neither the strongest species that survives nor the most intelligent but the ones most responsive to change. The only competitive advantage is the ability to learn faster and apply that learning.

The most essential skill of law firm’s Managing Partners is leadership training. This will equip Managing Partners to negotiate the changing legal landscape. The old ways of running a law firm or serving clients is no longer enough yesterday’s tools will not secure a prosperous future. Further it can be ambiguous as to which path to take to survive, or even, thrive.

Leadership (and management) skills are not taught as part of the legal training and with little provided during the training contract, Managing Partners today are in situ before they can access the training they need for managing today’s law firms.

Do you know your leadership strengths or your areas for development?
