Post Law Firms - How to Pick the Best One for You
on: March 9, 2023, 00:56

In ancient times the totem pole was a symbolic expression of past generations. It offered information about a tribe's identity--a type of linear -understanding of generations that came before them and the leaders who showed them the way. It enforced group solidarity and provided a necessary relational context to their lives.
The totem pole was worshiped and ritualized. The history of a whole tribe could be understood by this one linear expression. Symbolic communication, as a group organizing method, is also found in Wade Lawyers firms. Law firms proudly list their partners' names on letterhead and post them on doorways. Often some of the names are symbols of the past--a lasting recognition of those who came before as well as those who are currently carrying the torch of the firm's traditions into the future. This symbolic communication portrays the history of a firm's leader-ship and is an indicator of predicted performance. But what happens when the firm's past is forced to yield to the firm's future? When it becomes necessary for the firm to reinvent itself and set out new organizing principles that match its vision--when the old belief system is no longer in sync with the needs and demands of changing markets and clients? Most firms are facing this challenge right now, and some are not even aware of it. The partners I spoke with clearly recognized the need to re-invent themselves or risk sacrificing growth and prosperity.

Are You the Leader?

Who among you will lead the charge? This is a very personal decision that should not be taken lightly. It will depend not only on your own willingness to take on the challenge, but also on the willingness of the key partners who make up most of the power base at your firm.

If you are up for the challenge, accept this knowledge and get on with leading. If not, find the person in your firm who is ready and able to lead and offer that person all the support you can. You'll soon realize that the quality and commitment of your support for this person will be recognized as an important form of leader-ship in its own right.
