Developing a Positive Culture

3 CPD Units in Practice Management/Business Skills

  Marie Modra - Marie Modra Consulting

“Managing Partner at Squire Patton Boggs doubled profit in two years by changing office culture” (Headline in Australasian Lawyer 2014). Carolyn Taylor, executive coach who has worked with numerous partners and lawyers, in her book “The Power of Culture” (AIM Management series 2004) states “Understanding culture helps us to fathom what is going on in our businesses and why things do and don’t work. Get it right and it will drive positive performance”.

This workshop does not promise to double your profit in two years, but it will provide a rationale and practical tips for developing a positive culture. Marie Modra, the facilitator for this workshop, has experience working with law firms and individual partners to improve their team’s retention, satisfaction and performance. A significant lever resulting in improvements has been ‘culture’.

This workshop will focus on addressing the following key questions:

  • What is culture?
  • Why develop a positive culture?
  • What’s your espoused/actual/ideal culture?
  • How do you develop a positive culture at the
    -organisation level?
    - team level?
    - individual level?
