Let’s call a spade a spade. Lawyers don’t have the best reputation for being ‘nice people’. There are endless jokes about sharks, arguments and hatchets that pop up with even the simplest Google search. Yet, as consumers question, increasingly, the role that business has in shaping society – in contributing to a systemic inequality – law firms are being forced to consider their approach at two levels: first, as businesses themselves and second as advisors to countless organisations and professionals.
In this series of one hour workshops, creator of The Purpose Pathway, Helen Foord, will examine three crucial terms: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Responsibility and Purpose. She will provide practical examples of firms at different stages of their Purpose Pathway journey, as well as discussing common pitfalls, barriers to success and the questions firms need to consider if they want to deliver a more purposeful service. This workshop will take a holistic approach, combining presented training with practical exercises.
