  1. Kat, the Harvard Business Review article is excellent! I recomend it to the ENTIRE HIVE interested in their profesional development. I learned I had to push my own development b/c the manageing partner only wanted me to bill more hours, while I wanted to maintain and improve my legal skill’s. So I do get to go to NON-CLE courses as well as CLE courses. In the NON-CLE, I work on improveing my diction in dealing with cleint’s and in helping to understand the difficult legal issues I solve for them. I recomend the HIVE also take NON-CLE for their own improvement.

  2. Anonymous :

    I’m kind of obsessed with the enneagram. It seems like BS, but I’ve found it incredibly accurate and useful.
