Dealing with the underperforming or misbehaving partner
Thursday 11 March 2021
The underperforming or misbehaving partner is hard to ignore. It can be costly in addition to the risk of a potential time bomb regarding client relationships. The underperformer may be a once high achieving partner, now floundering. The misbehaving partner can be anywhere in a firm even amongst the star billers. Other partners are expecting leadership to deal with the bubbling animosity. Overall it creates an interesting challenge for firm leaders, firm values and firm cultures.
