In this week’s episode, I delve into what is perhaps the number one challenge law firm owners face when they are attempting to transition from solo attorney to CEO of a law firm business, and that is cultivating a high-performing legal team.

Once we overcome the fear of hiring that first associate attorney—which is a huge obstacle in and of itself for most solos—we often are then faced with what it REALLY means to cultivate, train, and manage a multi-person legal team including attorneys, paralegals, and legal administrators.

The transition from a solo lawyer or boss of one or two staffers is drastically different from leading a legal team. And most law firm owners are not only NOT prepared for the transition, but also have no idea what’s coming.

Listen in as I share:

  • 15 challenges law firm owners face when attempting to hire, train, retain and grow a high-performing team (or any team).
  • Why I think it’s important you begin thinking about these challenges before you even have a big team.
  • 5 “mindset shortcuts” I use and teach my clients that help to overcome overwhelm and fear around cultivating a right-fit team.
  • One way you can get help to grow your right-fit team faster.
  • And much more!
