Meet Cy Wakeman: 2020 Game Changers Summit Featured Speaker

5 minutes to read

Your law firm is only as strong as its weakest link.

That’s why it’s so important to develop a firm culture that empowers your team to add value, tackle change with resilience, and reach their fullest potential.

But how can law firm owners accomplish this?

According to workplace drama expert, leadership & team culture consultant, and bestselling author Cy Wakeman, you should start by addressing drama within your law firm.

Research from her organization, Reality-Based Leadership, uncovered that the average employee wastes 2.5 hours a day on unproductive activities like gossiping, tattling, withholding buy-in, resisting change, and stepping down from accountability.

For a law firm with just 10 employees, that’s over 500 payroll hours wasted on drama each month!

If you’ve noticed any of these issues plaguing your law firm, then you don’t want to miss this year’s Crisp Game Changers Summit.

Cy Wakeman will take the stage to share how her counter-intuitive, reality-based leadership philosophy can help you develop a drama-free law firm culture that celebrates innovation, embraces change, and drives phenomenal results.
