This workshop is designed for people who are considering or have recently transitioned into management roles. Often times, good attorneys are recognized by being promoted to management positions, but they may not have the unique skills needed to be successful in these new positions. This workshop will explore the essential skills that new managers often struggle with yet are crucial to success. We will explore issues around having difficult conversations, setting appropriate boundaries, providing supportive supervision in court and with clients, and effective modeling techniques. We will address the importance of diversity and inclusion as it pertains to effective management style. While recognizing that it can be extremely challenging to effectively manage staff with different perspectives, communications styles, and goals, this workshop will help to raise awareness as to the importance of recognizing implicit biases and providing cross-cultural supervision to staff.
