"Innovating Leadership in Law Firms" (Chapter 6 from Innovating Talent Management), provides a comprehensive review of how leadership positions have evolved in law firms. It also provides an overview of the changes in and the depth and breadth of training in this area currently available to law firms. The chapter addresses the “nature or nurture” debate in leadership development and provides a useful summary of leadership competencies. It identifies and describes a sampling of the leadership programs currently offered by external providers (law schools and consultancies), as well as analyzing the pros and cons of offering these programs within a firm. The chapter skillfully links leadership competencies to helpful guidance on how to develop curricula for current and emerging leaders in law firms. It concludes with the observation that, while resources exist, “few firms have developed systematic, comprehensive strategies for developing leaders and widening the leadership bench,” which Manch interprets as a positive in the current legal marketplace because it “means that the legal industry is ripe for innovation in designing leadership development approaches.”

Providing helpful tips, tools, and suggestions that support talent management professionals in their work as change agents and intrapreneurs, Innovating Talent Management acts as a resource for law firm leaders, legal department leaders, COOs, and CEOs as they consider their growth strategies and business priorities in the next decade. Law schools will also find this a helpful resource as they review, reshape, and relaunch their curricula to prepare graduates for the 21st century legal marketplace.
