Everything Nobody Ever Told Me: Dealing with Difficult People - The Provocateur

Just because other people are fueled by drama, doesn’t mean you need to attend the performance. – Cheryl Richardson I was busily working away at my new firm when the head of my department crept into my office, eyes wide.  She hunched her shoulders down, looked around to make sure no one else was within earshot and said in a hushed tone, “Do you have a second?  I have to tell you something.”  She closed my office door.  She proceeded to tell me that a colleague had a problem with some work that I had done.  Her story didn’t ring…

Difficult Clients: Here’s How To Deal With Them

Since many lawyers began their careers with months on end reviewing documents, it is no wonder that engaging with clients can seem to be a significant achievement and a welcome break from being in the document review den.   Yet as you begin to communicate with customers, you know that there is now an entirely new problem: that is your customers.

Everything Nobody Every Told Me: Visioning Really Works

As I was approaching thirty years of working full-time, I began much more flexibility in my daily schedule.  My dream was to be able to set my own schedule instead of adhering to the schedule of others.  Unfortunately, I could not see any viable way to make that happen, since I was working in a big firm where time seemed to be the master of us all.  Over time, my frustration began to build.  Whenever I became frustrated, I began to write out what I wanted my daily life to look like.  Dreams – even those that seem impossible –…

Practice Pointers - Knowing When to Consider a Lateral Move

Most lawyers (indeed, most professionals) won’t stay at their first job forever. Kudos to those “lifers” who find their perfect fit from the get-go (or decide to stick it out at their first gig), but the rest of us will likely contemplate a lateral move at some point in our careers. And if you fall into the latter category, how do you know when to consider making a move? The answer, of course, will vary depending on the individual lawyer and situation. From personal experience and now, as a legal recruiter, I’ve found that the following are good reasons to…

Tips On How To Effectively Boost Up The Morale Of Your Employees

Many employers sometimes fail to check if their employees are still doing good not only on their given job but also to their well being inside the office. They only notice that there might be something wrong when an employee fails to deliver his or her task and with very low productivity. Over time, your employee's morale has a high chance to drop, primarily if you don’t provide the things that can nurture their motivation high. Low morale can cause significant damage to your business since it can lead to poor cooperation, poor communication, and low productivity. It will only…

Practice Pointers - Working with a Legal Recruiter

Inevitably, at some point in your legal career, you’ll be contacted by a recruiter. Maybe it’s a phone call. Maybe it’s an email or LinkedIn message. One way or another, you’ll hear from one. As a litigator turned recruiter, I’ve been on the receiving end of recruiter calls and now I’m the one reaching out to candidates.
