Feedback for great results

0.25 CPD Units Online
While work can sometimes feel like it’s something we have to do (this is the case for most of us), the reality is that while we may have to work, it’s also true that we want to do our work well. If you’ve ever been in the situation, you know it doesn’t feel good not to do your best, to not know what you need to accomplish, and to not know if you’re doing things in the right way. The reason? We want to perform, we want to develop, and we want to be seen as a contributing member of the team.

One way to create a great work situation is to receive feedback on what we’re doing well and what we need to improve. Feedback helps us make corrections, do more of a good thing, and keeps us focused on the right work at the right time. While feedback often comes from our manager, we can also seek out feedback on our own. Our peers, co-workers, and customers are additional people who can help us identify the actions we can take to continue on the path towards excellence.

By completing this course, you will know the areas you need feedback on to deliver great results.

FLIP 2018 Podcast: AI Enhanced Lawyer

0.75 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Practice management and business skills
Online
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an opportunity rather than a threat to the legal profession. AI rarely replaces an entire job or process. Instead AI complements human activities, which can make the human elements more valuable. AI offers a set of tools which lawyers can use to be more efficient and effective in their work. But what are these tools, and what does the AI-enhanced lawyer look like? This session examines the capabilities and limitations of AI and the economics of technology adoption to explain how AI can enhance the way that lawyers carry out their work, with a focus on Australian developments.

Knowledge area:
  • Practice management and business skills

The legal services landscape is changing as a number of drivers create organic change from within, and exert pressure to change from outside the profession. Consumers of all kinds are demanding legal services of different levels of intensity depending on the nature of their problem. Legal and non-legal innovators are creating new products and platforms to deliver legal, or 'legalish' services, sometimes in the complete absence of legal practitioner oversite. The legal workforce is shifting in demographics and in ways of working, and lawyers and clients are connecting in new ways and in new forums.

FLIP 2018 Podcast: Legal Risk Management in the Cyber World

0.75 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Practice management and business skills
Online
With the rapid digital transformation of organisations and governments across the globe and the resulting increased digital access to sensitive information and critical services, cyber risks are increasing. It’s a brand new world operating under an outdated legal framework where there is limited precedent combined with new threats and vulnerabilities being identified all the time. The resulting potential exposure for organisations and individuals remains unclear. Likewise, the steps needed to protect oneself are not properly communicated nor widely understood. Most people are still trying to come to terms with this all. So what is really going on and how does anyone navigate this new world? For legal professionals, understanding their own professional risk is complex enough. However they also need to be able to understand the evolving law and risks facing their clients. This panel will demystify the current volatile environment and provide answers to a range of similar questions.

Knowledge area:
  • Professional skills
Online
This session will explore changes in the legal industry - especially during the past decade - that are reshaping how, when, with whom, and for whom legal professionals work. “Knowing the law” was once enough to secure a lawyer a predictable, comfortable career. That’s no longer the case. Legal delivery now involves legal, business, and technological expertise, and most lawyers will not have traditional “practice” careers as past generations have. That means that they must acquire skills to supplement their legal knowledge - data analytics, project management, personal branding, etc. Those skills - and how to acquire them - will be discussed.
