Effective appraisal systems improve partner performance

The benefits of effective partner appraisal include better performance in:-

  • financials
  • client relationships
  • winning business
  • strategy
  • leadership
  • and others!

If your firm doesn’t do partner appraisals, or it does but they are shrouded in negativity and / or are really just unstructured “cosy fireside chats” get in touch!

What can we do for you?

  • design a bespoke partner appraisal system for your firm. The basis of each partner's appraisal is review of the previous year and setting objectives for the next year.
  • incorporate your competency framework in the system. If you don’t have one we can design one with you or you can use the Positively Legal Lawyer Competency Framework.
  • provide training for appraisers and appraisees.
  • frequently we take part in the appraisal meetings themselves. Our role can include ensuring process is followed, providing direction, challenging, and focusing on effective objective setting.
  • do the summaries after each individual appraisal meeting.
  • provide an overall post appraisal report with observations, issues facing the business and recommendations.
