From Problem Partner to Productive Partner: Helping Your Law Firms’ Underperformers.

All firms have it. Leadership hopes it will fix itself, but it won’t. Dealing with underperforming partners is one of those topics that make managing partners and firm leaders cringe. No one wants to have “the talk” with the underperformer. To be an effective leader and to move your firm forward you must address this situation no matter how uncomfortable it makes you.

Learning Objectives - at the end of the session the audience will be able to:

  • Understand why underperformance happens
  • Identify the reasons for the underperformance of a partner
  • Create a framework to improve the individual’s practice
