SPECIAL ADVISORY ARTICLES
McKenna's International Review Magazine - Spring 2012
Once again this issue contains a number of pragmatic articles on law firm management and strategy:
• The Unintended Consequences of Getting What You Pay For
The biggest problem with monetary incentives is that they are tremendously overused and may contribute to dire, unintended results.
• Confronting The Underperforming Partner: A Persistently Unmet Challenge
The underperforming partner remains a persistent issue that is either ignored or handled poorly. Here are some steps for being more effective.
• Law Firm Leadership Reflections: Practical Advice For Those Who Manage
Excerpted from my blog, here are a couple of short snippets for reflecting on everything from what the next generation of law firm might look like to how we approach change.
• Working With The Team You Inherited: Notes From The LAB
What do you do with direct reports, some of whom are performing (or not) in a culture that your predecessor established?
• Crazy Like A Fox
This article explains why the increase in non-equity partners and decrease in associate ranks makes business sense.
• Advice To A Leadership Successor
What one important suggestion, idea or piece of advice would you offer that individual who becomes your successor?”
I am pleased to have been putting out this magazine for some years now. It essentially started when I first began mailing copies of periodic articles I had authored to select managing partners back in the Fall of 1998. Today, I am (to the best of my knowledge) the only law firm consultant to publish his own magazine for firm leaders.
