If you work in the legal industry (or any industry for that matter), you’re likely familiar with the idea of death by meetings. It’s easy to feel like all we ever do at work is sit in unproductive meetings. This feeling and too many of these kinds of meetings can really rob us of our passion for our work.
However, there is a better way. Mark has done extensive research into meetings and figured out a way to do them in his organization that doesn’t feel like a slow death. He calls it their “meeting cadences.”
In this episode, Mark shares what these meeting cadences look like. We also take the time to apply this to law firms and explain how you, as a law firm owner, can put it into practice.
We always want to make sure that we’re operating our law firms as businesses and not just focusing on the legal work that we do. So tune in to learn how to do this with meeting cadences.
