Managing Matters and Staff in a Virtual World

Has there ever been a more important time to be a focussed, trusted legal advisor or legal manager? This virtual and highly interactive session will give you the guidance and strategies you need to navigate the challenges faced by legal professionals working in current circumstances and will cover:

  • How to effectively provide direction, clear and consistent advice and structure in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world;
  • Fostering effective team and client communication and creating opportunities for effective interpersonal interaction whilst being a trusted advisor working remotely;
