Event Details:

Law firms are experiencing a wrenching period of upheaval. Economic crises, technology explosions, and a regulatory revolution have spawned a wave of innovative competitors. Newly empowered clients have adopted aggressive buying behaviors where they dictate the terms of their relationships to law firms. When clients change their purchasing patterns, law firms need to change their approach. Faced with this unprecedented competitive landscape and an industry-wide drop in demand for their services, law firms need effective solutions to these existential challenges. And they need them now.
 
Jordan Furlong, one of the foremost analysts of the global legal market and a leading strategic forecaster of its future, explains how to create a law firm built to succeed in this new buyer's market. He has designed a transformative client-first law firm that rethinks the business model, culture, client service, competitiveness, growth strategies, diversity, and leadership of legal enterprises.

All members are invited to attend, together with their firm leaders.

"Reimagining Your Approach to Performance Reviews"

  

Everybody hates them and the yearly chore instills fear and loathing into the hearts of employees and managers alike. But is there a better way to carry out performance reviews? The speaker will outline how to completely reimagine each element of your review process so it is more relevant for a contemporary workplace and more valuable and less daunting for both employees and managers.

 

Objectives:

  • Analyze how to reimagine traditional approaches to performance reviews for the contemporary workplace.
  • Discover five key areas of the performance appraisal to focus on for redesign.

  • Demonstrate how today’s technology can go beyond automating a bad process to enabling a more dynamic process.
