This workshop style session explores the experience of Cricket Australia as it sought to understand and acknowledge the flaws in its culture, and to rebuild itself, after the disastrous and damaging ‘sandpapergate’ affair. It uses that (very public and much discussed) case study to challenge lawyers to consider their own circumstances — including which of their own behaviours and practices, and the behaviours and practices of their firm generally, are consistent (or perhaps inconsistent) with building the positive firm culture they want.
We know a couple of things
- as the labour market tightens, attracting and retaining staff becomes increasingly difficult, and
- employees are increasingly concerned to work in organisations that align with their values.
The aim of this workshop is to give attendees a framework, and the opportunity to learn and share practical ideas, to build the rich and positive culture they want, that will attract and hold the people they want.
Who should attend:
Practice Managers, Partners, Law firm leaders
