Taking Care of Business
Management is something you don’t typically learn in law school, and it is a skill that is different from leadership. Leaders do the right things. Managers do things right. On Thursday, November 1 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. M. J. Clark of Integrated Leadership will present this workshop which is specifically designed for lawyers in leadership positions who have not been trained in management for 3.0 hours of CLE credit. M. J. has worked for several law firms throughout her career, both as an in-house legal marketer and as a marketing consultant. As a business consultant for Integrated Leadership Systems, M. J. provides leadership training, motivational speaking, executive coaching and organizational development for companies in Ohio and surrounding states.
About her presentation, M. J. states, “Lawyers are often thrust into leadership positions where they supervise other lawyers, paralegals or an administrative assistant, without the proper management training. This workshop will lay a foundation for those law firm leaders to help them gain a better understanding of how to run their practice. Additionally, this session will prove beneficial to lawyers who have received business training, but may wish to brush up on their knowledge and gain fresh perspective on how to manage their practice more effectively.”
This workshop will enable you to:
- Discover the difference between leadership and management in law firms
- Understand the cornerstones of management: planning, organizing, directing, and controlling
- Develop an action plan to increase your management ability to strengthen your practice in the upcoming months
- Take control of your practice, including hiring, writing job descriptions, recruiting, effective interviewing, and termination
