Managing Up - Thursday 21 January 2021

The importance of managing up and doing it well can sometimes be overlooked when considering what makes a successful manager. In this session we look specifically at managing up, including why it matters; strategies that work and those that do not; managing up to lawyers and other executives; prioritising what’s important to your manager(s); reporting in a way that helps your manager and clarifies contribution and value.

2019 sessions included:

  • Career development
  • Personal effectiveness
  • Recovering from setbacks – when things go wrong for me
  • Managing and developing your team
  • Lawyers as thought leaders.
  • The legal service to your organisation: your part in it.
  • Recruitment and induction

2020 sessions included:

  • Developing an in-house career
  • Being personally effective
  • Resilience, reputation and networks
  • Managing lawyers in-house
  • Delivering the legal service to your organisation

These events are limited to 18 individuals from a broad range of organisations and sectors.

The session will be facilitated by two former senior in-house lawyers (and members of CLL’s Advisory Board) and operated under Chatham House rule.

The next session will be held on the 21 January and will be a webinar.
