    About

    Some General Counsel join as the first lawyer to a business, but others inherit a team. Having to step up and lead a group of people who you don’t know and who don’t know you brings with it its own set of challenges.

    Emma is joined by Stephanie Dominy to talk through their techniques and what they’ve been on the receiving end of in terms of understanding who your team is, what do they do, and how do they do it. The discussion ranges from the politics of asking to be copied into all emails to performance management and dealing with overpaid juniors.
