Join us to learn more about Smarter Collaboration on Tuesday, December 6, 2022 at 11 a.m. ET.  

In this webinar, Dr. Heidi K. Gardner, co-author of Smarter Collaboration: A New Approach to Breaking Down Barriers and Transforming Work, will discuss key research, case studies, and takeaways from the new book. She explains what is meant by smarter collaboration (in short: the deliberate bringing together of the right people at the right time to achieve stellar results) and how it builds on the ideas introduced in her Washington Post best-selling book, Smart Collaboration (2017).
By now nearly all law firm leaders—and most of the partners—recognize why smarter collaboration is so important. The question now is how to achieve the benefits. Dr. Gardner focuses on the practical steps they can take to:​​​​​​

  • Get traction on smarter collaboration, even when times change (for example, hiring sprees, mergers, crises, and new external partnerships)
  • Revamp their performance management system to incentivize smarter collaboration and all its associated outcomes, including higher revenue and profit, deeper client relationships, and greater employee engagement
  • Troubleshoot other thorny collaboration challenges, like collaboration overload and unintended consequences on diversity and inclusion
