But how do you take ideas and put them into practice? Three leading lawyers and business leaders who provided case studies for Catherine’s book explain the practical importance of business concepts which are rooted in human skills within an organisation.
Many of these human skills will become even more significant as our organisations become more digital.
Being only a great lawyer is no longer enough at any stage in your inhouse career.
Skills such as empathy, collaboration, creativity and innovation are driving success in legal teams and in business more generally.
