Being a good lawyer isn't always enough.
You didn’t go to law school to learn how to lead… and in this highly competitive climate being a good lawyer isn’t always enough.
If you are in practice, then sure, you’re a good lawyer. Maybe even a great lawyer. Well done, that’s a credit to your ability, application, intelligence and effort. But you’re not on your own. I’ll bet you know plenty of other good and great lawyers.
So what is it that’s going to set you apart from your peers? Would you list leadership effectiveness as a key differentiator?
