Harvard Law School Executive Education Workshops

INTA is partnering with Harvard Law School Executive Education to deliver 90-minute, interactive workshops to help you build your skills using real life case studies. These workshops will introduce key concepts of leadership that are based upon Harvard Law School research as well as the research and cases of their colleagues at Harvard Business School. Curated specifically for the annual Leadership Meeting, the workshops will present cases on individual and organizational leadership, as well as strategy.  

Lawyers who are preparing to, or already playing meaningful leadership roles in their organizations, will benefit from these highly interactive sessions and will enjoy reading and preparing the cases in advance for discussion at the sessions. Participants will share their insights and reactions and will leave with practical ideas about how to create organizational buy-in, have challenging feedback conversations, and consider new approaches to creating value for clients through strategic approaches. 

Sign up today to learn practical tips, tricks, and methods to incorporate these learnings into your everyday work. These sessions are developed exclusively for INTA, and we encourage you to only register if you can attend the Workshop. You must be registered for the Leadership Meeting to attend this add-on event.

Professor Scott Westfahl, Director of HLS Executive Education. Professor Westfahl teaches courses on problem solving, teams, networks, and innovation within the law school's J.D. curriculum.

Relying on the Rob Parson at Morgan Stanley, a nuanced and complex performance-based case study, this session will examine the critical role of feedback at an individual, departmental, and organizational level. Key take-aways will include a deeper understanding of the serious role that feedback must play in any team or organization, as well as a discussion of the impact of poorly-delivered feedback (or no feedback at all). Participants will also learn and practice a proven feedback delivery model, the use of which will improve their own ability to plan for and engage in even complicated and difficult feedback conversations.
