  • A Lesson in Leadership for Legal Management Professionals (CE Credit)

    Product not yet rated Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    More than ever, today’s legal management professionals are expected to have leadership capabilities. Read the article in Legal Management magazine and then take this quiz for CE credit.

    More than ever, today’s legal management professionals are expected to have leadership capabilities. Deciding on which skills and behaviors to build into each firm’s environment can only be truly effective if the leader is willing to seek feedback about their own strengths and weaknesses from those they serve. The downside of this practice is that it can sting. The upside is that the legal manager is modeling a very powerful leadership behavior that will have long-term benefits to both themselves and the firm.

    This CE course will encourage the reader to consider modeling the foundational practice of leadership development, thereby increasing self-awareness through seeking feedback. It will challenge the reader to push themselves outside their comfort zone and consider an action plan to increase self-awareness, seek feedback and commit to applying new learnings.

  • LFME: Leadership

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This Law Firm Management Essentials (LFME) course provides an essential foundation of knowledge about leadership at a law firm.

    Legal management professionals are faced with leadership challenges every day. You manage up and down the reporting line — managing partners and executive committees on the up, staff on the down — in an industry that is being reshaped by economic pressures and technology. Though it is sometimes a difficult position to be in, it also means that you — and those around you — benefit when you improve your leadership skills. Research shows that skills most valuable in today's leaders include self-awareness, adaptability and collaboration.

    Learning Objectives

    • Explain levels of leadership, management and ways you can work with others most effectively.
    • Recognize Goleman's leadership styles and emotional intelligence elements.
    • Apply knowledge of self to improve relationships and business outcomes in the law firm you manage

    Successful completion of this course provides 0.5 hour of credit for the CLM. Credit hours must be reported in 60 minute chunks or more. You must combine this 0.5 hour of credit with another LFME course to report it.
