Fueling Performance and Potential Using Talent Analytics
One of the biggest stumbling blocks to improving the ROI of our business development efforts is moving from plan to execution. Join us for an interactive discussion around how talent analytics are being used inside law firms to help identify and prioritize strategic initiatives based on the natural capacities and motivations of your partnership.
Debra Baker, Managing Director of GrowthPlay, will share findings on how to leverage data to:
Uncover the natural business development strengths of attorneys to improve the results of coaching and training efforts.
Use business development role profiles to map the right people to the right roles for key initiatives.
Understand your team/firm Growth DNA by using data to better understand and define your firm’s culture.
