Build Relationship Equity First

Raise your hand if you’ve received an overly friendly email from a stranger, asking you for a favor. Everyone? I thought so. Why do these bug us so much?

Two Easy Tips to Power Network Like a Pro

How can we network better? Many posts offer the same tips, spun in a different way – and that’s important, because I can always get something out of implementing the tried and true.  But when I find something unique, I’m always happy to share it. Recently, I came across this piece from Branding Magazine, with “5 Tips … Continue Reading

What’s Holding us Back from Real Change in Legal?

“Change or die.” How many times have you heard that over the last eight years? A friend of mine in the legal industry pointed that out to me recently, along with commenting that it always sounds so dire. And it does sound dire. But after the statistics that we covered in a recent post (1/3 of clients are openly … Continue Reading

CLOC: Change is a Drumbeat

Any time you pick your head up from the daily work you’re doing in the legal industry, “change” is the drumbeat that you hear. Nowhere was that more apparent to me than at last week’s CLOC Institute – for those of you who aren’t familiar with CLOC, it’s the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium. They’re a … Continue Reading

Super Bowl Commercials – The Ugly of 2017

We are finally here at the “ugly” of the 2017 Super Bowl commercials – do you already have your list is mind? The first couple were really easy for me to come up with, and the last few were late additions after some extra thought was given to the crop of ads this year. No … Continue Reading

Super Bowl Commercials: The Bad of 2017

Now that we’ve seen our lackluster list of “good” Super Bowl commercials for 2017, let’s dive into the ones that I thought weren’t so hot. The majority of spots made it into my “mediocre” category, so it’s harder to choose “bad” and “ugly” ads this year than you might think – but I’ve buckled down … Continue Reading

Super Bowl Commercials: The Good of 2017

It’s that time of year again – the time when football fans mourn the end of another season with the pigskin and marketing fans rejoice because the best and brightest (usually) bring out the year’s highlights for strong ad campaigns.

Change: What’s Holding Us Back?

Law Firms: The Future is NOW

The “law firm of the future.” We’ve spent a lot of time talking about this in recent months, not because I find it to be interesting (which I do), but because other than my “Instagram for Lawyers” post, this has been the hottest topic on Zen this year. I had a conversation with a senior … Continue Reading
