Managing Yourself

Key Self-Management Skills beyond the SRA Threshold Standard

Do you feel confident to run a client matter efficiently and effectively? Do you have the interpersonal skills necessary to manage and succeed in a dynamic, people and service-oriented working environment?

The SRA Competency Statement has defined key continuing competencies for all solicitors and this two part course is specifically designed to fulfill those learning needs in two crucial areas which solicitors need to develop as soon as they have qualified.

Session 1 - Managing your Workload

First, on a practical level, a solicitor needs to know how to run a matter efficiently (and effectively) and this sessions includes:

  • Understanding efficiency
  • Planning and prioritisation
  • Tools and techniques for success

Session 2 - Managing your Communications

Second, a solicitor must develop his/her personal skills in order to better manage working relationship with both colleagues and clients in a people-oriented working environment and this session includes:

  • What makes for great communication?
  • Empathy and working with others
  • Limiting conflict at work


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.

Key Benefits

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
