Welcome Back, Leadership Development. The Legal Profession Has Missed You.


Prior to the great recessionary train wreck, leadership development had become a hot topic in law firm strategic thinking.  Firms of all sizes, but particularly those undergoing rapid growth, post-merger integration and/or dramatic multi-office expansion, realized that law firms have become sophisticated economic engines requiring powerful and sophisticated leadership.  Succession planning was moving rapidly away from the time-honored “Okay, Bob, it’s your turn to run things for a couple of years” model.  The need was clear to identify and groom top leadership talent.

Pre-recession leadership development programs took various forms in the quest to identify and support firms’ most powerful or promising lawyers: weeklong full-immersion off-site programs; comprehensive leadership assessment; individual leadership assessment and coaching; internally led group programs on firm governance, operations and economics; and confidential long-term consigliari coaching support.
