Columbus Bar Launches Leadership Academy
Wednesday, October 3 marks the beginning of the second year of the Columbus Bar Leadership Academy. The program, which sold out most sessions last year, explores principals and techniques to help attorneys build the relationships that support a rewarding and successful law practice in central Ohio.
Four condensed sessions turn nebulous concepts such as “business development,” “networking” and “community involvement” into attainable short-term goals. Members who complete all four sessions, in any order, earn a Columbus Bar Leadership Academy Certificate. Graduation from the program establishes that the member has additional skill in negotiating important professional relationships and is committed to becoming a leader to the local legal community.
Members are not required to complete the sessions in order. Graduation follows completion of all four sessions, in any order. Please note that there are two offerings of Session 1 and 2 for your convenience and to accommodate members who were placed on a waiting list from a previous offering of the session.
The first session entitled, Getting to Know You — How to use initial conversations to build relationships with new people, will be offered on Wednesday, October 3 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The rest of the year’s sessions will be held on the following Wednesday evenings:
November 7, Session 2: Go fish-Setting goals and getting results from your networks
January 9, Session 1 (second offering ): Getting to Know You— How to use initial conversations to build relationships with new people
March 12, Session 3: People in your Neighborhood – The basics of the Columbus Bar and other community organizations (all attendees at previous sessions will be guaranteed a spot at this session)
April 2, Session 2 (second offering): Go fish – Setting goals and getting results from your networks
May 21, Session 4: Playing well with others – Using relationships in an ethical, respectful and responsible manner (all attendees at previous sessions will be guaranteed a spot at this session)
