1CPD - Professional Skills
Presented by Marie-Claire Ross

In today’s fast-paced and now remote business world, it is often hard to build trust, particularly for time sensitive projects. Teams must be put together quickly, decisions made, and deadlines met.

Without trust, the consequences for risk management can be high.

If there is no or low trust, people are less likely to ask for help or speak up if something doesn’t look right, and mistakes can go uncorrected.

In this insightful session, you will learn:

  • How to move teams from the abatement to the achievement zone
  • The link between psychological safety and accountability
  • A three-step formula to help leaders build trust quickly.

Recorded: Thursday 22nd July

Acting for private lenders can be high risk especially where the loans are short term with high interest rates or are between family members or associates.

The security arrangements are often not taken seriously by the parties and then they sue their lawyers when the security turns out to be inadequate.

This session looks at common mistakes and lessons for practitioners in anticipation of increases in private lending, difficult financial times ahead and an uncertain property market.

This webinar addresses the five key areas of practice management necessary to build and maintain a quality legal practice. It will look at the important issues in each of the areas of governance, client engagement, work production, people management and risk management.
