I was lucky enough to get the thoughts of senior legal attorneys on how they staff their A team. They appreciate employees who:
- Solve problems proactively. Think ahead about future problems, and go to your manager with solutions.
- Have your manager’s back. When managers take positions, they appreciate when you publicly explain their rationale to clients.
- Grow with the company. Build a track record of flexibility and resilience. Respond to guidance.
- Influence others. Successful attorneys collaborate with different team and are respected by their peer group.
- Understand the business.
