Attorney Entrepreneurship with Jacqueline Newman | Recap with Joan Sebring


In this episode, Alay and Joan discuss: 

  • The importance of building a team. 
  • Determining if someone is going to be a good fit for your team. 
  • Understanding your company culture. 
  • Employee engagement and your law firm’s vision. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • The team is the foundation of your business. If you don’t have the right people in the right roles, you will not be best serving your clients. 
  • Understanding your team deeply will allow you to hire for the gaps you have in your team.
  • Part of building a culture is understanding how you are going to help your team continue to learn and grow, and how that fits in with the firm’s growth and vision. 
  • If you give your team the bandwidth to do the work, they will deliver for you (if you have the right team).
