Optimizing Individuals’ and Leaders’ Collaborative Behaviors: Implementing Smart Collaboration Series

report September 2020

In this second part of our Implementing A Smart Collaboration Strategy series, we lay out how to equip lawyers (and potentially others in the firm) with the capabilities to turn their natural ways of working into strengths that improve collaboration. It also shows how to improve leaders’ understanding of their group dynamics so that they are better able to manage, direct, and motivate their teams (such as practice groups or key account teams).

Part 2 of the Implementing Smart Collaboration Report Series. This series lays out a research-based, practical approach for law firms to turn their collaboration strategy into a living, breathing part of daily life.  Given most firms’ culture of high autonomy and decentralization, leaders need to drive it both from the top-down and bottom-up.  Implementing Smart Collaboration requires a clear-eyed view of the current state of collaboration, and then targeted approaches to strategy implementation.
