We’ve all heard of managing up and managing down, but what are the best ways to manage tension, rancor, or unhealthy competition among colleagues? Law firm associates face particular challenges as they vie for certain work, seek to develop key partner and client relationships, or strive to build their profile, especially as progression opportunities narrow with seniority. Our program will address how to navigate these peer relationships with a focus on encouraging associates to serve as support systems for one another, while maintaining the ability to protect and promote their work product and advancement potential.
