Careers in the legal sector are evolving and to stay in the game lawyers need to “future-proof” what they do and how they do it, writes legal recruitment specialist Leonie Ellis.
Conversations about winning clients, losing money, the path to partnerships or an in-house legal career, talent and a lack of talent swirled around me for years, until a serendipitous discussion one Sunday in London. The topic was an audit firm’s success using business simulation as a tool to hedge their reputation with a client and manage their ‘scarce’ resources of time, money and talent more efficiently.
The simulation had provided a safe space to learn about how the mechanics of this corporate client’s business worked and identify challenges before the audit. During the discussion on this simulation the penny dropped!
What if the goal posts in a lawyers’ conversation moved from: “How do I achieve my target and manage my scarce resources?” to “How do I contribute to building a sustainable, reputable practice/department that generates an annual profit/return?”
It has taken 18 months to identify the right business simulation partner to create a platform that can unlock the potential of legal professionals and the collective legal team. It is with great excitement Re-Engage Consulting is collaborating with the Corporate Counsel Association of South Africa (CCASA) and Business Today Simulations, to launch our first “Game of Business” workshop for lawyers.
During the two-day event, delegates participate in running a business using a board-based simulation. This process allows delegates to experience the inter-connectedness of various business disciplines and functions. As participants execute their strategy in a live and competitive market, the results of their actions can be measured in their firm’s performance.
‘The Game of Business’ deepens one’s ability to master business acumen including strategic thinking, market orientation, leadership skills, financial acumen, as well as analytical and logical problem-solving insight in a competitive environment.
