Intense --- Likes Variety --- Mobility --- Works at a Faster Than
Average Pace --- Leads --- Takes Initiative --- Quick to Connect
--- Lively --- Fast-Talking
The focus of the Senior Attorney position is making connections
with clients and colleagues and motivating and inspiring them to
achieve their goals. Poise and an engaging, empathetic
communication style based on natural warmth and enthusiasm is the
key to achieving the goals of this role. The work involves driving
toward results by enrolling the commitment and buy-in of others.
While the job requires strong initiative and self-direction,
results are only achieved with and through people. A sincere
appreciation for people and how they are each uniquely motivated is
the foundation for designing and implementing interactive
communication and decision-making processes. Knowledge and skill in
how to successfully influence and persuade others by understanding
how their individual needs and motivations link to goals is
essential. The role requires a high degree of "selling," both when
negotiating and advocating on behalf of clients. The job
environment is fast-paced and results-oriented. While there is an
urgency to achieve goals, responsibility for the achievement of
results needs to be shared and effectively delegated among other
legal professionals when necessary. Enlisting the buy-in and
support of others will often require a "selling" rather than
"telling" communication style. A self-confident, extroverted style
that can enliven, engage and positively impact others is essential.
The Senior Attorney role has a variety of tasks and is dynamic and
changing. Because goals and desired results can quickly change, the
position requires regularly meeting and pro-actively establishing
relationships with new people. The ability to understand, quickly
react, and motivate others to adapt to the changing environment is
a critical key to success. In general, the core of this position
requires a motivated and motivating experienced attorney.
