This course caters for those who aspire, or are confronted with the opportunity, to lead an in-house team as well as those who are already managers, seeking reassurance that you are on the right track or looking to adopt a different tack.
Your organisation expects your team to handle more and more legal work without costs increasing and your team, supposedly of cats reluctant to be herded (according to the well-worn analogy), are looking for job fulfilment and personal development.
Attending this course will enhance your ability to contribute to your organisation, orchestrate the team’s effort and development whilst being a key component in your development plan to meet the SRA’s continuing competence requirement.
