New York-based IPA 100 firm Marks Paneth LLP (FY19 net revenue of $141.4 million) has launched its first annual Leadership Academy, a year-long comprehensive leadership program designed to help supervisory-level staff and managers expand their leadership skills and further their professional development.
The Leadership Academy’s 20 participants were recommended by partners and come from a mix of practice areas and offices. Throughout the program’s monthly sessions, participants will interact with members of the firm’s leadership team, learn more about the inner workings of the firm’s governance structure and cover topics ranging from practice development and marketing to business development and financial and risk matters.
“The Leadership Academy provides participants the skills needed to respond to the challenges of a competitive marketplace,” says MP Abe Schlisselfeld, who was instrumental in developing the program. “These skills are critical to achieving our business objectives and providing our clients with innovative solutions and the highest possible levels of service.”
