McKenna's Internaional Review Magazine - Spring 2015
as a firm
leader when something goes sideways, espcially when it is the result of
something you did . . . or even did not do, that perhaps you should
have. Recovering From A Leadership Misstep is another collaboration
between me and my good friend
and colleague, Ed Reeser proposing some remedial courses of action for
worst that could happen, happens.
The Leadership Succession Process, I
set out the three fundamentally different approaches to leadership succession,
together with their respective advantages and disadvantages. This article is an excerpt from the
Introduction to my newest work, The Changing of The Guard: Selecting Your
Next Firm Leader. You will find
more information on this NEW instructive guidebook on pages 12 and 13.
Innovation In Your Firm had it’s origins in a Webinar that I was privileged to participate
in with Andrew Smulian, Chairman at Akerman LLP; Ken Grady, CEO of SeyfarthLean;
and John Paris from Williams Mullen’s Innovation Committee - while Inquiring Leaders Want To Know offers
you ten questions to jump-start your strategic thinking. Hopefully both of these offer some pragmatic
advice to those interested in either subject.
Finally, When Job
Descriptions Don’t Do The Job is an article that I hope will provoke you
into taking action on job descriptions for your practice leaders.
As always, I sincerely hope that you find some practical
ideas, tips and techniques here that you can put to use immediately. Please send me your observations, critiques,
comments and suggestions with respect to any of these articles.
