Becoming a rainmaker is not an easy journey, but by employing the right strategies and going through the requisite baptisms by fire, one can lead a more stimulating career in which one has more freedom and flexibility. In short, a professional “life worth living”.
On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Focus Forward Consulting LLC chief executive Sheila Murphy, who was associate general counsel and senior VP at MetLife and partner of a US-based law firm, to talk about how GCs can traverse the path from being a “servicing attorney” to being a rainmaker for their respective businesses, particularly at a time of such economic and marketplace turbulence.
The pair also discuss the factors leading to gender pay discrepancies, the importance of rolling up one’s sleeves to support change in the legal profession, and what Ms Murphy sees as practical ways that professionals can put themselves forward to receive commensurate compensation.
