MDC and StrategyHorse present: “Rising Leader Academy”

StrategyHorse Consulting Group

Module 3: Networking Strategy and Skills for Those Who Dislike Networking

Wednesday, March 20, 2019
5:30 p.m.

Miles & Stockbridge P.C.
100 Light Street
Baltimore, MD 21202

StrategyHorse has created an innovative curriculum designed to engage and inspire the confidence and competency younger professionals need to lead their firms into the future. The curriculum will be presented in a series of interactive workshops designed specifically for promising lawyers in their mid-20s to mid-40s that are expected to secure the legacy of their firms. Each workshop has been carefully created with an understanding that real progress cannot happen without first revealing and directly addressing the motivation (cares, fears, wants) behind the behavior of the next generation of law firm leadership.

Who Should Participate?

Associate and junior partner attorneys with at least 3 years’ experience that have demonstrated an interest in firm leadership and growth.

“I thought it was great. She was engaging and interactive.”
— Sheryl T.

Module 3: Networking Strategy and Skills for Those Who Dislike Networking

Most lawyers are uncomfortable in traditional networking settings for a variety of reasons. Introverted personalities, time management concerns and a variety of other things pose a challenge to those who feel the pressure to network but struggle with embracing it. This workshop will provide attendees with tailored guidance designed to identify creative, effective and enjoyable approaches to networking. We will demonstrate how effective networking practices will yield career-long business development dividends. Participants will learn how to design and execute a strategic and effective networking plan to improve origination, complement recruitment efforts and build brand.

Wendy Teaching

Each workshop will be approximately 2 hours in duration and be interactive in nature. Participants will receive a brief pre-workshop summary to help prepare them to get the most out of their participation.

$225 per module and
$400 for a package of 2 remaining modules
