The goal of management is to control your world by controlling the behavior of the people around you.
When your world goes out of control, when you are plagued by constant interruptions and demands for your attention, your business-building energy is sapped dry and you are left wishing that somehow you could find the time to really work on your business.
Until you establish systems and policies to control the people who are running…and sometimes ruining…your world, you won’t recapture your energy and you won’t find the time.
If you’re like most of my clients, managing staff is one of the deepest, darkest areas of your business.
This is especially true when it comes to hiring and training additional attorneys you add to your team.
It may feel like herding cats!
The big secret when it comes to management is to establish a system and then train your staff and your clients to follow the system.
