Tea Time with Karli

After two failed attempts at recording Chapter 5 for the audiobook, Karli reworks the problematic chapter. Will the newly revised pages get the green light from RJon? Will this be the day it is finally recorded? Can Karli cross Chapter 5 off her to-do list? Listen in to hear for yourself.

In the Studio

In this excerpt, RJon emphasizes the importance of detailed job descriptions, key performance indicators (KPIs), and objective metrics for staff. This protects employees by clarifying responsibilities and setting clear expectations. It also protects law firm owners from favoritism concerns by providing unbiased data based on objective performance measurements.

From the Cutting Room Floor

RJon stresses the importance of building sustainable systems that are not solely dependent on one person (you). This allows a law firm to continue operating whether the owner steps away because of an unexpected emergency or for planned personal time. The ability of a law firm owner to step away for a period of time is an example of a true business and not just a practice or a job.
