Leadership is more important today than ever. As change is thrust upon the legal sector from all sides – a global pandemic, a renewed movement for civil rights, industry disruption, generational shifts, and more – the pressure upon law firm leaders is unprecedented. Yet few are well-prepared. According to research jointly conducted by The Tilt Institute and LawVision:
- Just ⅔ of law firms offer any leadership training to lawyers
- A typical law firm partner gets less than 12 hours in annual leadership training
- Only 32% of law firms offer a dedicated leadership program to partners
The Leadership Institute’s Foundations Program is designed to help law firms tackle this challenge and take advantage of the tremendous opportunities presented by the current environment.
A joint effort by industry veterans, John Mitchell and Marcie Borgal Shunk, and sponsored by Thomson Reuters’ Legal Executive Institute, this unprecedented program demonstrates the power of remote learning. The Leadership Institute’s Foundations Program draws on a broader curriculum to deliver a six-week course of live online learning, skill-building, interactive brainstorming, self-discovery, opportunities to put theory into practice and targeted planning for change.
This unique opportunity is available to 60 total participants on a first come, first served basis. Registration is limited to one individual per firm. We may consider up to two registrants for senior administrative professionals accompanying lawyer leaders or exploring the program for their firms. This program is designed for practicing lawyers.
Attendees will learn the fundamentals of leadership, tools to advance and evolve your current leadership style, how to engage others in change, and more. Specifically, we will explore five core areas:
- The leadership journey (Oct 21, 2020)
- Leading self (Oct 28, 2020)
- Leading process (Nov 4, 2020)
- Leading people (Nov 11, 2020)
- Leading change (Nov 18, 2020)
