Implementing the School of Greatness

Part of our firm’s culture is helping our team build a framework for personal development.
This month our firm is reading “The School of Greatness: A Real-World Guide to Living Bigger, Loving Deeper, and Leaving a Legacy” by Lewis Howes.
The School of Greatness
According to Howes, “The masters of greatness are not successful because they got lucky or are innately more talented, but because they applied specific habits and tools to embrace and overcome adversity in their lives.”
Howes suffered a career-ending injury leaving him out of work and living on his sister’s couch. He decided he needed to make a change for the better and started reaching out to people he admired. Finding and interviewing mentors, Howes applied their lessons to life off the field. By doing so he built a multimillion-dollar online business and is now a sought-after business coach, speaker, and podcast host.
Many attorneys talk about “hustle,” but forget to apply it to all aspects of their life. Their define hustle by how many court appearances they made in one week, or how many hours they billed.
Howes says: “Hustle is about taking consistent action over a period of time in order to build momentum in your life over time.” Your life includes: your body, your mindset, your relationships and your skills . . . not just your life as an attorney.
When our team focuses on taking consistent action in their lives, the firm can measure its “hustle” beyond our actions as lawyers.
Interested in joining our team?
Part of the vision of our firm is to not only provide excellent legal services but to also help our employees grow personally, professionally and financially. This growth is encouraged in a number of ways.
First, through sales training with The Growth Coach of Greater Baltimore. Law school does nothing to prepare lawyers for the business of law. Every member of our firm, from the legal assistant to the owner, will undergo sales training to learn how to live a richer and fuller life while practicing law.
Second, by giving and showing our employees a path to success. Telling a lawyer they need to generate business is different than showing them how to generate business. Our firm wants you to be successful.
Finally, providing a work environment where everyone understands the ONE Thing that makes the firm successful. Sharing the firm’s goals and vision with its employees.
