Doug took some time to answer our questions:
What is the greatest success you’ve had since joining LWP?
Hiring a new attorney and client services coordinator with complimentary Kolbe scores. Goals, goals, goals. Now that we have well planned goals and a vision, we have more than doubled our revenue and I no longer stress (too much) about the expense side of the balance sheet.
What is your favorite LWP tool?
The Money Plan Focuser and Brainstorming Sprints stretch our team into common goals and create accountability and buy-in. I love that it is intentional and our office is becoming more organized and goal driven. Actionstep is a tremendous resource that ties all this together.
How has being part of LWP impacted your team and your practice?
The implementation process and the coaching has changed everything. We are still improving and each step has had dramatic effects on the firm. Although painful at times, as in revealing our weaknesses, the process has strengthened our firm and the team’s honesty is a healthy outcome.
Share something about yourself that most people don’t know about you.
I am a Tournament Bass Fisherman! I love the comradery and competition and have been doing this for 20 years.
What is your favorite book and how did it impact your life?
Lee Strobel’s book The Case for Christ. I read this book in 2005 during a particularly stressful time of my life. My Christian faith was brought front and center, and forgotten childhood dreams and ambitions were revealed to me, one of which was studying law. I eventually acted on this and went to Law School in 2010, and am now honored to be associated with so many at Lawyers With Purpose.
Congratulations to you on your continued success!
