Services For Law Firms Professional Development

Professional Development

Successful law firms of all sizes understand how crucial it is to develop talent.  The consequences of failing to provide high quality professional development experiences can significantly affect a firm’s bottom line.

Surveys of young lawyers consistently demonstrate that professional development is more valued than financial compensation.  Inadequate opportunities to grow professionally will motivate gifted lawyers to bring their talents to another employer.  Without transitional support, the promise of new and lateral partners will wither.  Even the best core competency program will fail without individualized assistance for associates trying to master skills they never learned in law school.

Most senior attorneys would rather do the work for which they were trained than allocate significant attention to the care and feeding of junior lawyers.  Yet many have the potential to become excellent mentors and leaders, if only they can develop mastery in the skills required for these roles.

We have the training, credentials, experience and expertise to enhance your professional development programming.  We work with firms to develop training and coaching to achieve the talent-development goals most important to the firm’s success.  Depending upon your needs, we can create tailored individual and/or group coaching programs, workshops, presentations and training programs in the following areas:

  • Strategic Career Planning
  • Career Counseling
  • Core Competencies
