Do you have the core leadership competencies required to be a future-fit General Counsel?

An ability to adapt to change may very well be one of the most critical traits GCs will need to lead and succeed amid these uncertain times. Nearly 90% of GCs recently surveyed identified an ability to be flexible and evolve in changing work environments as absolutely paramount to their success. This has become an all-too-familiar reality as our perception of the “normal” ways of working and living, building relationships, and conducting business evolves almost daily.

These and other key insights can be found in our “Leading with Influence” report, a new research study Morrison & Foerster has completed in partnership with Global Leaders in Law, aimed at helping you, our global GC community, lead and thrive as you juggle increasingly complex roles. Over 150 global legal executives participated in this comprehensive study to understand the competencies crucial to you—the GC of the future.

Read the report to access tools that allow you to assess and benchmark your current behavior, cultivate leadership skills, and apply best practices to increase your influence within your own organization and beyond the legal department. It also contains insights on:

  • The capabilities of the general counsel of the future versus their current state;
  • Key attitudes and aptitudes, including both strengths and blind spots; and
  • A guide for adapting styles when interfacing with other roles within the C-Suite.
Download the research report to determine your own mastery of the skills and competencies that will be required for you to develop your leadership skills and become a successful GC of the future.
