Many leaders in law firms have never tackled the first hurdle (No. 1), feeling unable to share the load with others, so they never have enough time.

Invest time in managing performance against agreed objectives and tasks, mentoring others to develop their business and personal skills. Don’t try to do it all yourself. There just aren’t enough hours in the day … and the rest works for me too!
