This course is specifically tailored to:
Newly qualified solicitors
- More experienced professionals who seek a refresher and update on their existing skill-set and wish to comply with the SRA Statement of Solicitor Competence.
The transition to becoming a fully qualified solicitor, responsible for your own case load, is not always easy – it’s the beginning of a great deal of hard work. By attending Managing Yourself, the first area in Altior’s Unique 3 step Management Programme, we will help you develop the critical skills needed to manage and succeed during this transition stage. In particular, after attending this course you will be able to:
- Manage your client matters with increased efficiency and confidence
- Understand and use improved communication skills with your work colleagues and clients
- Empathise better with differing personalities, outlooks and approaches
- Reduce conflict and its impact should it occur
- Improve your working relationship with those to whom you report.
