In addition to the four "external" systems every law firm needs to scale to and thru $1M with total ease, in this three-part training, we also cover the essential three "internal" systems.
Love the idea of expansion but hate the idea of hiring, firing and everything in between? We’ve got you. The key to cultivating a team of A+ employees (or contractors) is in your hiring process. The key to keeping them is in your leadership style and your management process (and, ultimately, team). In module one of this three-course training, we share with you the same People Management system we share with our private clients.
In the second module, you'll discover how to set up Technology Systems. We all know we want to use “technology” and “automation” to help streamline and systematize our law firm businesses, BUT how often do we wind up testing out the latest-and-greatest tool everyone is clamoring about on social media only to discover it is not for us (and regretting we wasted the time and money on it). Tech tools are fabulous but it is critical to make sure you are not overinvesting in technology you do not need.
Module three covers the last of the three critical "internal" systems, Financial Management. No professional service business can or will succeed without good financial management. In this module we help you set up yours.
