Which skills will get you there? Which biases won’t? 

Find answers in an entertaining discussion, illuminated by research data, pop culture references and examples relatable to small and mid-sized law firms. Finally, a handout will provide resources to continue to hone your leadership skills as you prepare for challenges ahead.
