We have watched thousands of candidates go through the interview process and sometimes, after many rounds of interviews, we hear, “We are going to pass on Sue or John.” As hard as it is to share this outcome with candidates, we know it is even harder for them to hear – especially if things had […]

February 10, 2016

I have given the Myers Briggs Type Indicator to over 7,000 law firm professionals since 1991 and have found it to be an extremely valuable assessment tool. Recently, the ABA Journal had a cover story on the Myers-Briggs and lawyers that I was quoted in.  Did you know that most attorneys are introverts?  This is […]

The Importance of Business Intelligence

November 5, 2015

Last week, I attended a half day LMA program in DC on The Client Experience.  It was an excellent program, and the section on having competitive intelligence talent to support your BD team really resonated.  To be honest, I am surprised at how few law marketing/BD departments have Research Analysts and/or Competitive Intelligence professionals.
