Richard Susskind in his most recent offering on the technological revolution confronting lawyers predicts an end-times scenario. Dr Michael Nancarrow's prognosis is more hopeful but equally challenging. Tomorrow’s lawyers (which includes both those in practice as well as those entering practice) face challenges of a different complexion to what awaited lawyers in previous periods. Technology will intrude into much of the process and rountinised aspects of law practice. The daily work, tasks and decisions of tomorrow’s lawyers will take a different turn in many ways.
"Without it [EQ], a person can have the best training in the world, an incisive, analytical mind, and an endless supply of smart ideas, but he still won’t make a great leader.” Daniel Coleman, HBR article, 1998.
Lawyers in particular can set themselves apart from the competition, and contribute to their practice growth strategy by developing their EQ skills. With a positive impact being reported in relation to communication, client relationships, staff management and resilience, it’s no wonder EQ is often the go-to skill for successful lawyers.
