Being an effective leader requires many skills, but most important is the ability to manage and build teams. This panel focuses on skills needed to manage people, both those you report to and those who report to you. No matter what stage of your career, it is important to be able to set expectations and stick with them. Another key aspect of management is delegation. Being a good delegator means that you can more effectively achieve group goals, lighten your workload, and train your team. Finally, a leader must be able to give feedback and critique. This panel will train you on how to deliver feedback in a manner that is constructive while maintaining its effectiveness. 

Join us as our panelists break down some of the most important leadership skills!


  • Managing people both above and below you
  • Motivating others and effective delegation
  • Training your team and creating a collaborative work environment
  • How to deliver feedback and criticism effectively

The Barristers Leadership Development Series is aimed at creating and growing the next generation of leaders. Attorneys are often thrusted into leadership positions, whether at their law firms or companies, without much guidance or a roadmap on how to effectively lead. This Series provides practical skills and tools to help fast-track attorneys for success.
