How to Get Your Valuable Ideas Accepted

Those of us working in professional service firms are expected to lead change in our organizations, but are often thwarted by the organizational structure, power plays and politics endemic to law firms. How does one lead without authority or control? How does one bring about positive change in an organization that is inherently risk-adverse? How does a law firm manager influence and persuade others to effect change?

Speaker Mark Beese will discuss the challenges facing law firm leaders and introduce tactics and tools you can use to get your ideas accepted and effect change in your firms.

Learning outcomes:

The speaker will specifically address:

  • Building trust and developing credibility with attorneys and employees
