Leadership Advisory Board

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

I’ve been a fan and a reader of everything Patrick McKenna of the Edge Group has written for many years. An Edge Group training course I took on rainmaking while at The Stolar Partnership was very important in my professional development. It was quite a thrill when Patrick attended the initial LexThink event and I got to meet him in person.
So, when Patrick lets me know about something new that he finds innovative and exciting, I’m all ears.
His latest project, with Baker & Daniels’ Chair Emeritus Brian Burke and Managing Partner Magazine, is the Leadership Advisory Board. The Board is a service for new law firm managing partners to get advice from experienced and knowledgeable managing partners through an interactive forum.
I’ve met a good number of young managing partners in the last few years who have talked to me about their wish to have a way to learn more about how to manage firms, get advice for the challenging questions they face and find some mentoring. Patrick aptly has described it as a “safe sounding board.”
It looks like a case where need meets solution, which, given Patrick’s involvement, doesn’t surprise me in the least. This development is one to watch.
And, the Board, to me, gives us another glimpse of what Law 2.0 developments might look like.

Dennis Kennedy’s Links of the Week – March 2, 2008

Sunday, March 2nd, 2008

Links of the Week is a regular feature on this blog where I list some of the most interesting links I’ve found during the previous week – sort of a “best of” from my Google Reader Shared Items. The idea is that I pick out a set of links that I might have wanted to write about or that I found especially thought-provoking or useful. I might or might not agree with the posts or items I link to, but I found them to be something I wanted to share.
In general, I’m just going to give a link to the item, without any explanation. I’ll try to do this every weekend, and I’ll include the latest additions to my 52 books in 52 weeks project.
