I have spent the last year on a mission: to challenge all lawyers to answer the fundamental question:
“Are you the most of anything?”
I don’t just mean, are you making progress up the slippery slope to partnership? No, I mean making the most of your ability.
But, in truth, where I really want to aim this question is at the people (supposedly) in charge.
The question, of course, has to be reframed: “Are you making the most of the talent within your midst?” But it is posited on the same foundation.
