We are privileged to work with some of the UK’s leading law firms both in London and internationally delivering face-to-face sessions, online masterclasses and coaching in the 7 skills.
How do we work with law firms?
7 skills for law firms
Whether online or face-to-face, our high impact sessions focus on building stronger self-awareness of adaptability, empathy, critical thinking, integrity, optimism, being proactive and resilient. We align them with organisation and performance objectives and work with all levels and departments – from junior and senior associates to partners and support staff.
What we do with Law Firms
These highly interactive live 90-minutes sessions focus on building adaptability and optimism during high uncertainty and change; supercharging productivity whilst working from home and building collaboration and new opportunities within teams.
All of our sessions include up to 4 optional one-to-one coaching either in person or online. These sessions are to enable workshop participants to go into more depth to apply the skills in their personal and professional lives.
Working with multi-discipline groups of up to 12, we deliver highly experiential awareness-raising half-day and full-day programmes which include individual feedback, copy of the book and one-to-one optional coaching. Currently on hold until restrictions lift.

What our clients say…
Senior Associate, Clifford Chance LLP
“Really interesting and very useful - I would highly recommend this course (and already have to several partners in my team). A great positive message and helpful in the workplace.”
Tanya Zuchowski, Learning and Development Manager, CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP
“It is a delight to work with Emma Sue and her team. She has so much passion for what she does. Her workshop and book are excellent and fit particularly well with our core company values – definitely seven key skills we need for our future!”
Lawyer, business services Ashurst LLP
“I thought the trainers were great. It wasn't rushed, they took the time to really explore themes and feelings, and involved everyone as much as they wanted to be involved. It was an emotionally tiring day but super worthwhile.”
Associate, CMS LLP
“She (the facilitator) created an environment where everyone felt comfortable to share their thoughts and experiences which was a key to the workshop. Made everyone feel heard and respected and often asked questions to trigger thought rather than saying what is right/wrong.”
Our Success Stories
Since 2018 we’ve been running successful modular workshops with CMS in London, Edinburgh, Bucharest and Warsaw. The sessions are aligned to CMS Modus behaviours and competences and run in mixed groups with different disciplines and levels of the organisation as well as with groups of associate lawyers and are firmly embedded within the company’s training objectives. Delegates also receive individual feedback reports and up to 4 optional individual coaching sessions.
In 2019 we were delighted to be invited to lead sessions to young people on the Clifford Chance PRIME programme which ensures that anyone wanting to enter the world of law has an equal chance to do so, regardless of their background.
Our sessions in Adaptability and Critical Thinking were very well received and each young person received individual feedback to support their personal and professional development.
Running a half-day awareness-raising experiential session on Critical Thinking, Optimism and Adaptability skills with a group of lawyers and senior partners was a fantastic experience.
Each delegate was given a personalised individual feedback report and the option to receive one-to-one coaching to support their personal and professional development.
