So, you’ve probably read the about you page and are re-assured that I understand your challenges…

Scott_Johnston_Professional_and_Leadership_ DevelopmentWhy me?

It’s an important question. Let me take a moment to reassure you that you’re in the right place.

I qualified as a Barrister in 1990 and have been engaged in much more than only the law.

The ‘Mindset and Skillset’ from this varied experience is the foundation to helping you build on your success:

  • 20 years litigating very painful ‘human’ areas of the law
  • Working for and against global corporations and small business owners
  • Working with various coaches, mentors, psychiatrists and psychologists

Lincoln's InnWe’ve all witnessed the fallout from poor leadership: the distraction, in-fighting and the dreaded internal politics; the bottom-line implications when good people – and good clients – walk away.

I can share with you my management and leadership experience and many years immersion in the world of personal development. This brings an added dimension when working with you – much more than being ‘just a lawyer’.

Oh, and I’ve learned from my fair share of mistakes too. Haven’t we all?

Proactive not Reactive

I understand the difficult balancing act between delivering technical expertise and enhancing your leadership capacity.

Working together we can boost your professional performance and fine-tune your leadership; we can ‘Raise the Bar’ (sorry, I just couldn’t resist the pun!).

Growing your team

A key focus for you may be developing your fee earners’ essential business skills and management skills for your people managers.  Alongside Employment Law work, I’ve been training these ‘softer’ skills for many years.

Negotiation Skills Seminar

Do your fee earners need to bolster their client care and management skills?

Or maybe their negotiating and networking; or confidence and ‘people’ skills.

Group facilitation through the IMPACT programme or Rising Stars™ would be ideal for their development.

What now?

So, I understand your challenges and can help you move forward.

Let’s get to work.

Let’s have an informal chat, just to see if there might be something I can help you with.
