BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT COACHING
Leading lawyers have one thing in common: they are dedicated to reaching their full potential as professionals. The unfortunate truth is that most lawyers come out of law school knowing very little about business development or how to market themselves or their firm. We give lawyers, and law firms, the tools they need to achieve success including business development coaching.
SEMINARS & WORKSHOPS
Business development seminars & workshops, whether they are used as a stand-alone refresher or part of a broader training curriculum, can be an invaluable tool for your firms growth.
When a lawyer or professional leaves your firm, do you view it as the end of a relationship or simply the beginning of a different one? Often your former team member is leaving to join a client or prospect, or may join one in the future. No matter the first step they take after working with your firm, these are individuals with whom you should stay in contact and to whom you should try to provide value. We can help you to develop an Alumni program that fits your firm.
- Development of Alumni Program
- Development of Alumni messaging
- Writing and structuring of exit interviews
