The legal industry is ever evolving and expanding. As a young lawyer, it is impertinent to understand these changes, however it isn’t just enough to adapt. We must develop within ourselves exceptional skills sets that allow us to become inspiring leaders of the future which contribute to this evolution and expansion of the legal industry.
I understand that for many, these changes could be overwhelming. My suggestion to lawyers starting out in the business would be to start working on your skills NOW!
In my previous posts, I have written about some basic skills sets that lawyers should have. In the upcoming series of posts, I would like to discuss about skills and traits that will enable one to develop as future leaders in his or her firm. Emotional intelligence, analysis of decision making process, understanding strategies, project management skills are a few that I will be advising and sharing my tips on. All of these can be exercised and observed in every lawyer’s day to day life.
What are your thoughts on training to be not only a successful lawyer but also an efficient future leader? Are there any particular skill set that has helped you in achieving this? I would love to know more about it in the comments section below. Your replies will help me to structure our upcoming training sessions and master classes.
