There are many ways to engage your people. One of my clients had an office meeting with all lawyers, law clerks, assistants, basically everyone in the office. They held a brainstorming session with discussions on everything from how to make the work flow easier, to better serving clients. As the leader or Managing Partner of your firm, you don’t have to have all the answers. When you engage your team members like this lawyer did, your people will come up with all kinds of ideas and solutions. And when you do this, you are empowering them to be a part of the solutions, not just dictating what they should do. Their loyalty increases. Their productivity increases. Their general well-being increases all leading to a more seamless and cohesive team.
