    A key part of becoming a legal operations leader is - well, being a leader. But how do you step into those shoes, and how do you develop your relationship with other senior stakeholders?

    This is the first of our in-depth episodes on Legal Operations, led by Stephanie Hamon of Norton Rose Fulbright. In this episode, Stephanie’s interviewees talk about the importance of moving “from a cost centre to a strategic enabler”. It starts with deeply understanding your company and its strategy. It involves reflecting on and tailoring your communication style. And being collaborative with other functions outside legal.

    Each episode in this series is in depth and runs at over 20 minutes. You can use the chapter marks in each video to skip ahead to the interview you’re most interested in - or which the whole thing from start to finish.
