PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The topic will explore how an
inclusive culture--one that nurtures business development and leadership--is
key to becoming a success story. We will explore how different
cultures/environments impact the road to success. Large firms that have
experienced mergers, rapid growth and numerous lateral acquisitions often find
it difficult to maintain a healthy internal culture. Faced with these
challenges, law firms must find ways to nurture an environment that supports a
collaborative and productive workplace, attracts top talent, and encourages
lawyers to deliver exceptional levels of client service. We will explore the
attributes of this collaborative culture, identify issues related to attaining
such a culture, and share techniques for achieving your cultural goals.
