Are you killing your

Growth Potential?

Growth Potential?

Financial goals are an obvious metric for any legal firm, however, focussing only on month-by-month targets is a huge mistake that could be killing your firm’s future performance and growth potential.

As a senior leader in the legal industry, your focus is most likely on increasing profit margins, avoiding hassles, reducing the day-to-day management of others, and wishing everyone else could just get on with the job without constantly needing your attention.

Meanwhile, firms focusing on the business of law, with a stronger focus on leadership and development, are proactive in delivering excellence and creating an incredible opportunity for exponential business growth and success.

Our focus today needs to broaden to guarantee future performance, and performance objectives need to include non-financials. We need to create a link between performance and productivity, instead of only regarding profit as performance.

Top Legal firms need to understand the link between performance and productivity to ensure their ongoing success.

In a firm focused on the business of law, the law is no longer the focal point, people are.

Average law firms don’t invest in

Leadership

Leadership

There is a significantly noticeable difference in the way that the average commercial business and the average law firm operate.

Technical delivery versus leadership

The legal industry set itself apart from not just the military and consultancies but most of the professional world by failing to devote significant resources to leadership training and development.

Most law firm management teams can respond to a single change in market factors but struggle when faced with multiple challenges. In most cases, this can be addressed and handled in firms that have invested in more capable leaders.

Legal firms and teams with effective leaders tend to outperform their peers on the indicators that keep people happy – that is, fun, fame and fortune.

What’s more, they seem to be able to sustain their success regardless of bumps in the road such as a global pandemic, major advances in technology and intense challenges from competitors.

It’s time to shift your focus

Creating effective leadership and management capabilities has never been more important than it is right now..

If you want to fully realise your firm’s growth and success potential then investing in your people should be your #1 priority.

  • Leadership is instrumental in formulating value, vision and direction – it’s main focus is developing the organisation
  • Management sets goals and objectives and ensures vision turns into success – it’s main focus is developing efficient ways to achieve organisational success

To be successful, an organisation requires leadership and management balance in responsibilities and time (partnership). To make this incredibly important transition you will need to;

  • Understand the purpose of leadership
  • Understand what makes someone a leader
  • Get insight into the different roles leaders play
  • Understand technical leadership and business leadership
  • Discuss leadership in a partner-structure

The function of leadership is to instil self-leadership in everyone, to achieve collective growth.

To be a leader you need to understand and lead yourself, you need to be self-aware in your environment.
