Best of 2017: Strategic leadership for partners

Strategic leadership for partners

Law firms face increasing pressures to change and increase productivity and performance in rapidly evolving markets. And when lawyers take on partner, senior partner, managing partner and board positions, they now need to take a more strategic view of the business they are responsible for.

Strategy in today's competitive and fast-changing landscape is moving away from just 'strategic planning' to more 'strategic thinking', in order to respond more effectively and quickly to changes.

This full day workshop has been designed for legal professionals by award-winning coaching and training company, Quiver Management. The session will be interactive and practical; mixing theory with conversation exercises and all participants receive a course workbook with descriptions of the models and techniques shared on the day.

“A thought-provoking and extremely useful course. I will be taking what I learned back to my role.”
Peter O’Donnell, Partner at Thompsons

“Clear, targeted and enjoyable delivery. The time passed very quickly (in a good way)!”
Stephen Inglis, Partner at Jameson & Mackay

“The workshop gave me new ideas and the confidence to approach changes required in the business.”
Pauline Kennedy, Managing Partner at Stevenson and Marshall LLP
