Well being at work is an important issue which most employers are keen to recognise in the workplace. But what if you don’t have the skills to take your career in the direction you want?
This month: Develop the skills you need to thrive at work
As legal professionals we are taught about the law and how to apply it. In time, those skills become well-honed and additional skills such as communication with clients and business development are built up as we go about our daily working lives.
However, often those soft skills of management or internal communication are neglected. Just because you are the best solicitor in the team does not mean you are automatically the best person to manage the team or determine the direction and growth of the department.
Equally fighting tooth and nail over a dispute for your client may be second nature, but are you confident enough to sit down with your line manager and say that you are too busy and work needs to be better prioritised?
Having these skills can make the difference between a stressful working life or a smooth career development path. We are excited to announce that we are in the process of setting up talks across East Anglia and Essex in partnership with an ex-solicitor who has experience in this field. Together we aim to help you develop these soft skills and utilise them within your own career to really maximise your development path and keep in control of your own destiny.
Your career development path and your well-being will certainly benefit from attending! Watch this space, and feel free to get in touch if you’d like to be the first to know about the details when they are finalised!
