    Strategic Leadership: Developing Legal Expertise and Skills to Enable and Empower Yourself and Others in the 21st Century

    At GCI 10, you will explore the strategies, skills and substantive knowledge necessary for in-house counsel to successfully lead their organizations and legal departments. Discover how to orchestrate rather than dictate -- to enable others to achieve their best; learn to influence rather than control – to empower others to start conversations and build consensus; and develop a broader repertoire of technical skills, substantive legal expertise and emotional intelligence – to create an engaged and positive work environment. Through powerful personal stories, substantive legal workshops and GCI’s unique open exchange of ideas, you will develop best practices and actionable solutions for cutting-edge leadership attributes that will inform and inspire your legal department and your organization to bridge the gap between achieving today’s priorities and realizing tomorrow’s possibilities.
