February is a hard month. It’s like everyone got so busy celebrating the New Year in January that they didn’t get down to business until February. Yet the feeling of newness has worn off a bit, and it’s tempting to feel like you are already behind on the year!
I don’t know if you have had that experience, but if you have, I feel for you.
Here’s my February 2020 Recap, with a new free online course, UChicago webinar (open to all), ABA Conference and some articles you might enjoy. Happy almost March!
Many of my clients are Chief Legal Officers or General Counsel at public or private companies who want to know how to (1) expand the growth runway in their current role and/or (2) find a new role that better suits their growth trajectory. Often these two goals go hand-in-hand, especially if you can initiate further career-enhancing opportunities within your current organization while opportunistically being open to new roles externally. If you are a Chief Legal Officer or General Counsel and at a similar career juncture, here are some insights that may help you accelerate your career growth and/or job search.
To succeed as General Counsel, you need not only to build relationships and move outside of what may be your comfort zone – a lawyer with excellent substantive legal skills – but also position yourself as a strategic member of the leadership team. Enclosed is a list of articles to help you explore and master the expanded General Counsel relationship.
