How to Be an Effective Leader

People who have leadership positions in an organization will be most effective if they develop good leadership skills.  They will create a positive work environment in which members of the organization are motivated and feel empowered to contribute their best efforts.  In the case of law firms, a study performed for the Association of Legal Administrators found that the financial success of a firm depends in large part on the leadership skills of the firm's partners. Some of the ways to be an effective leader are discussed in my recent blog post on the Lawyer & Statesman website which can be accessed by clicking on this link.  Leadership skills for lawyers are discussed more fully in the first three chapters of my book, The Art of Practicing Law: A Practical Guide for Lawyers.
