Education Session:  Marian Lee – “Establishing Yourself as a Functional Leader”

Earning trust, building credibility, and gaining influence in a world created, owned, and dominated by lawyers.  You’ve earned a position as a business professional in a law firm. Now what? How do you build credibility and lay the foundation that will allow you to make a positive impact on the firm and its profitability? In this program, we’ll discuss the practices and skills that distinguish respected functional leaders who earn a seat at the strategic table.

Session Objectives:

(1)   Understand some of the personality traits that can make it challenging to work with lawyers, and use that understanding to relate to them more effectively;

(2)   Identify at least three practices for building trust and credibility within the firm; and

(3)   Target skills for their own development that will enable them to lead without positional authority.
