Managing Self Monday Morning Practice Time

Get your time back – with this essential practice habit

Written by Allison Wolf

One habit is essential for the lawyer who wants to get more out of life then chasing deadline after deadline. Delegation.

Right now you are either patting yourself on the back saying, I’ve got this down. Or you are groaning an admission that you could do more of that.

Delegation makes you a better lawyer. It improves leadership abilities. Goal setting, communication, planning and feedback skills get honed. You get more done. Delegation has the power to turn an overloaded to-do list into a manageable workload.

The highest form of delegation, teaming on files, establishes a collaborative approach that helps lawyers more quickly develop into skilled legal counsel.

Even if you are a sole practitioner or work at a small firm with no access to juniors there are still options available to you.

To learn more read on from my article on delegation published by Canadian Lawyer Magazine On-line.
