Leading from the front, with Michael Harmer
The age of coronavirus has highlighted the need for law firm leaders to ensure they are steering their ships in targeted, business-specific ways, says the reigning Managing Partner of the Year.
In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Harmers Workplace Lawyers managing partner Michael Harmer to discuss the myriad challenges that have confronted law firm leaders in 2020 and the need to triage competing concerns in order to keep a firm’s head above water.
Furthermore, the pair discusses striking the right balance between leading in a particular fashion versus facilitating and encouraging self-leadership within lawyers, and how best managing partners can lead from the front as we look towards a post-pandemic world.
