Is Your Firm Facing A Leadership Transition


Do these sound like some of the questions that every new Firm Leader is likely ask themselves:

• Am I really clear on the reasons why I accepted this position?

• How can I be sure that I have correctly understood what is expected of me?

• Which tasks should be a priority and which can be put on hold?

• Who am I going to meet with first and what am I going to say?

• Have I defined the challenges facing my firm and determined an approach to dealing with them?

• When can I begin to introduce change and what is my initial plan of action?

• How do I make sure that I have the support I need from the partnership?
