How GCs can develop their business skills to be effective leaders
Many of the innovations and ideas that GCs and in-house legal teams need to embrace have already evolved within the wider business environment. Some GCs feel unprepared to tackle key business challenges and concepts.
Catherine will explore the grey areas around some of the themes in her book: leadership, purpose, culture and creativity. Using real-life examples to bring these themes to life, Catherine will demonstrate the importance of human centred business skills, how they are becoming central to legal teams and what savvy GCs and in-house lawyers should be thinking about to maximise their team’s success.
Catherine works as a consultant to law firms and legal departments around the world. Her work focuses on a range of areas including business ideas, the future of law, human-centred skills, leadership and inclusion, and diversity. Catherine also founded GC Magazine and is an ambassador for the elite General Counsel networking group Global Leaders in Law.
