The path to becoming a Partner in a professional services firm is steeped in mysticism. Sometimes you only find out what you are up for on the day you are admitted. Leaders of practises strive to identify and nurture the next generation of talent and are looking for those intangible qualities over and above subject matter expertise.
Specifically developed for leaders working in professional services, Partner-Like Qualities® is our unique tool developed in conjunction with our business partner Saville Consulting to help individuals and practise leaders understand the strengths and development areas of existing and aspiring Partners.
