Women In Law: A Full-Day Leadership & Business Development WorkshopA Full-Day Leadership & Business Development Workshop
Apart from legal acumen, what skills are most critical to women attorneys’ success and advancement?
Most respond, “leadership and business development.” A continued focus on skills development is not a luxury. Rather, it's a necessity. Since time is always precious and each individual’s strengths and situation are unique, a "one size fits all" approach is ineffective. There are, however, gender issues that make it difficult for women be successful in their marketing and business development efforts. This program uncovers the secrets to a building and growing a practice for women lawyers.
This full-day workshop is designed to help female attorneys develop the skills and disciplines related to leadership and business development. We recruited the legal profession’s top leadership and business development gurus to create and facilitate an intense one-day workshop that includes a workbook of leadership and business development resources to help you implement your action plan after you leave the session.
We’ll explore how to develop personal leadership skills, starting with one’s mindset and attitude—how we react to change and how to lead and sustain change. We will discuss how to increase one’s resiliency and grit—two skills critical to success in today’s law firm environment. In the context of the law firm, we’ll look at how to be more persuasive, influential and how to expand your network internally and externally. Finally, we’ll discuss how to develop a clear, compelling and challenging personal vision.
We will reveal the skills and tools that are most helpful to women building a book of business, from:
improving communication skills
learning how to adapt to other people’s communication style
conducting effective business development meetings
building an effective network
filling your pipeline and developing a personal business development plan
The workshop is aimed at women attorneys who are preparing for partnership as well as those who are currently partners.
