Designing learning programmes in the legal sector

February 10th, 2015 by The Team

We have a wealth of experience in supporting clients in the legal sector to implement their People Development strategies.  Working with clients including DAC Beachcroft, Freshfields, Hogan Lovells, Linklaters, Council of Europe, DLA Piper, Reed Smith, Slaughter & May, Allen & Overy and White & Case, we have developed a range of bespoke training programmes focusing on subjects including Diversity & Inclusion, Leadership & Management, Appraisal & Feedback, Effective Communication, Ethical Behaviours and Assessment & Development Centres.  

From large-scale roll outs of firm-wide training to intensive, bitesize learning sessions for Partners – we can be flexible and dynamic in our approach – tailoring each piece of work to suit the individual organisation.  We recognise that every business is different – and for that reason we begin every programme with a careful period of research and development, the findings of which are used in the design phase of the creative process.  By tailoring our programmes so intricately, we maximise impact – allowing delegates to recognise the characters, situations and behaviours being presented.

Crucially, though the drama will ‘hold up a mirror’ to the reality of the organisation in a way that no other training can – we also take measures to make sure that delegates have a ‘safe space’ in which to voice their opinions and listen to others.  We set our dramas in a fictional organisation, which gives the delegates valuable critical distance and a platform from which they can challenge the behaviours they are witnessing, rather than feeling inhibited by existing business practices.

From graduates to juniors and from senior leaders to partners – we are now the provider of choice for several global law firms.  We have delivered global programmes across the UK, Central Europe, US and Asia Pacific regions and have delivered multi-lingual sessions for professional services clients including the European Court of Human Rights, Reed Smith and KPMG.

We pride ourselves on creating interventions that are memorable and deliver tangible, bottom line results for our clients.  We enjoy working with clients to determine effective evaluative measures for each intervention and can provide expert advice on appropriate ways to embed the learning and desired behaviour change. 

In recent feedback, 100% of our legal sector clients would recommend Steps and 100% rated our understanding, our service and our value as ‘Good’ or ‘Excellent’.
