a foundation for building better leadership

The Walker Clark Individual Leadership Assessment first identifies your strengths and opportunities to improve. It then builds on them to develop a personal action plan to start getting better results in your leadership roles in your firm and with clients.

The Individual Leadership Assessment is developed and delivered by Lisa M. Walker Johnson, a counseling psychologist with more than 15 years experience helping lawyers and law firms to get better business results through improved leadership skills and behaviors. The whole process, from start to finish takes three days.

  • Day 1: Confidential interviews with you and selected colleagues who can offer observations and insights about your leadership behaviors
  • Day 2: Preparation of a confidential report and prioritized recommendations
  • Day 3: Half-day confidential coaching session with you to review the report and recommendations , as well as to help you plan the next steps

Our Leadership Assessment also includes eight hours of follow-up coaching and advice by telephone as you finalize your leadership improvement goals and start achieving them.
