I have been researching how to cultivate high performance in professional services for several years. I am now formalising that research as an Adjunct Professor at Bond University & tomorrow I am delighted to launch our new program for high performance lawyers in a keynote speech at the Queensland Law Society’s 150th anniversary conference

The program is “The Breakthrough Lawyer: 4 Steps to becoming a successful lawyer and leader”

The Breakthrough Lawyer Program is designed to benefit both in-house lawyers & those in private practice (big or small) – no matter what your career-stage or type of law you practice. It is a research-based, online, 8 week Bond University course with a blended format including:
•Challenging projects that will create change
•Exclusive video interviews w. successful lawyers & leaders like David Gonski, David Thodey & numerous global General Counsels
•Individual & small group work
•Supportive cohort community
•Personal coaching from me

Limited to 30 people for 2023

The 4 steps in the Program are:

Step 1. The Future: We show how you can benefit from the key future trends that will impact lawyers, including AI (like ChatGPT), LegalTech, Cybersecurity etc. We also teach you how to identify other trends that will create work/career opportunities

Step 2. The Habits: Based on research with numerous successful lawyers & business leaders, this step teaches the 10 Most Important Habits of Successful Lawyers

Step 3. The Plan: If you do not have a plan then chances are you the just executing someone else’s plan. This step takes participants though creating a life plan & career plan that will lead to success & satisfaction. This step also involves an evaluation of the participant’s key personal assets (experience, relationships, interests, etc) in order to establish a unique personal brand. Find your voice & flourish

Step 4. The Innovation: Participants will learn the key aspects of Minimum Viable Product innovation, the methodology used by most start-ups & a proven way to achieve low-risk innovation. Participants will then apply these techniques to bring their own innovation project to life

As far as I am aware there is not a program like this one for lawyers anywhere in the world. I would love to work with you if you are enthusiastic about improving your career (and life)

Just a side note, I have not left my day job – but this Program is an important project for me & I am delighted to work with Bond University to bring it to life

For any non-Australians, Bond University is located in Qld & has nothing to do with James Bond. Great name for a university though
