Recruiting Effective Partners that enhance the firm's growth and legacy

Partnership Challenges

Making Partner - The psychological and functional complexities of a Partner role are immense

A Partner in a Consulting or Law firm is an all-encompassing role of a business developer, a thought leader, a practitioner, and a team builder with a great degree of execution excellence.
In some ways, a Partner has similar responsibilities as a CEO, such as growing the practice, grooming the team etc. But they also carry the added complexity of solving client problems across a variety of use cases straddling diverse industries. Whilst a CEO has the advantage of working in the same industry for many years before climbing to the top, the Partner role presents no such advantage.
As per Harvard Business Review, “there are few professional transformations quite as psychologically complex as the transformation to partner.” There is pressure to constantly strategize innovative solutions of the future and adapt emerging technologies to create a winning edge that are critical to winning & executing high value engagements.

Women in Consulting & Law Firms

Assessing potential Partners is a comprehensive evaluation process. Herminia Ibarra, the Professor of Organizational Behaviours at London Business School, studied 35 aspiring partners at several large professional services firms, and concluded that “creating a partner persona involves three tasks: observing role models, experimenting with possible selves, and evaluating their results.” One has to tick every box and demonstrate potential and long-term promise.
