Leadership Institute: Managing vs Supervising: How to Support Your Team While Moving Forward the Mission

  • When: 23 April 2024, 12:00 pm ET to 1:30 pm ET
  • Where: Zoom
  • Cost: $40 for WCL members; $60 for nonmembers; $145 package discount for 3 sessions

The public sector presents many unique challenges as you progress through your career. Unlike the private sector, you will have sole client responsibility right away and you may find yourself moving into a leadership role 3-5 years into your first position. In session 2, we will discuss managing vs supervising.

Our conversation will be led by Michael Lukens, Associate Director of the CAIR Coalition.

Then, we will take a deeper dive into the core competencies of leadership in the following two sessions.

  • Wellness & Managing Secondary Trauma: Why It’s Important to Professional Competency on Tuesday, May 21
  • Personnel Actions on Tuesday, June 25

All the sessions are from 12:00-1:30 pm ET. The cost is just $40 per session for members and $60 per session for non-members. There is also a discounted package rate for the 3 remaining sessions. Scholarships are available thanks to the generosity of the DC Bar Foundation. Please fill out this online scholarship request form.

These sessions are designed specifically for public interest lawyers. We will address the specific challenges and rewards that come with early career leadership responsibilities, offer concrete tips and strategies for supporting your team, and explore how self-care must be a part of your professional competencies. Our Leadership Institute is appropriate for lawyers who are currently team leaders, first or second-line supervisors, those who hope to move into a leadership role in the next 12 months, and anyone who could use a primer on effective leadership.
