The Early 30s Career Crisis

A little while ago, I started noticing a pattern among a lot of my friends. Let's for now call it the "Early 30s Career Crisis". What seemed to be happening was that people were reaching levels in their careers where the gains to be made from changing track and doing something else were approaching the downside costs…See More

How to assess leadership potential on the cheap

Yes, I know. I’m not the greatest businessman – I’m giving away something for free that Floreat charges money for. Fear not though, I haven’t completely lost it. This is not THE secret sauce (to be fair, I couldn’t give out the recipe in a post even if I tried – it takes years of practice and reflection to be a profiler) but it does amount to some helpful ideas on how to get a handle on…See More

The Top 5 Mistakes of Graduate Programs

Ok this is more of a negative, ‘what you’re doing wrong’ kind of post. So apologies about that, but I’ve had a lot of conversations recently about poor experiences on graduate programs that I felt a need to share what I’ve learnt. Future leadership roles are intended to be filled by the graduate group, and so the purpose of this article is to provide advice on retaining those future leaders and not turning them away.A word of caution – I’m not implying grads must have it “handed to them on a…See More

Why law firms need better leaders (and what to do about it)

Back when I was studying to be a lawyer, I was generally surrounded by people who wanted to get ahead. Generally, get ahead of each other – it was a very competitive environment. When it came time in 4th year to apply for clerkship positions with the major law firms, the competitive tension became even more pronounced and explicit. Often, people would be quite desperate to beat everyone else, leading to bullying and out and out aggression, as well as anxiety and depression. For young lawyers,…See More
