Accelerated Leadership Program
Our Accelerated Leadership Program is a four-day program designed to advance the development of early to mid-stage partners. As partners, these lawyers are taking on larger managerial responsibilities and are expected to exert greater leadership. This program offers them the perspectives and skills to make the transition successfully.
Focused on the unique leadership challenges of the General Counsel and other high level legal officers, the Leadership in Corporate Counsel program offers participants the opportunity to develop skills key to becoming an effective leader of an in-house legal department.
Leadership in Law Firms
Our program for senior law firm leaders (managing partners, chairmen, department, practice or business unit leaders, chief officers), Leadership in Law Firms, is a six-day program designed to teach participants frameworks and strategies for balancing professional responsibilities, strategic planning, improving organizational alignment, managing change, and motivating people and teams.
Women’s Leadership Initiative
Our Women’s Leadership Initiative for early to mid-stage women partners is a case-based learning program, that includes field experience, coaching, and a capstone program allowing for reflection and synthesis of lessons learned to create plans for future impact.
