Change is incredibly hard. The scale and complexity of challenges faced by in-house legal teams today are unprecedented. Today's high-performing legal teams look at what other innovators are doing and borrow their best practices. That's why community— social support—is so important.
Those themes were echoed at Symposium, Ironclad's exclusive event for senior in-house legal leaders which took place at the penthouse of San Francisco's private social club, The Battery, on Tuesday, Sept. 24.
Here are the highlights:
- Brex GC Vince Cogan shared his experience on how Legal partners with the business, especially in product development and scaling teams.
- Ironclad customers Lawrence Drewry (Sr. Counsel, HashiCorp), Emelita Hernandez-Bravo (Head of Legal Ops, Fitbit) and Kenneth Carter (GC, Bitmovin) shared how they have streamlined their contract processes and empowered their business counterparts with Ironclad’s Workflow Designer.
- University of Oxford Professor Geoff Bird walked through the dangerous impact of stress on our wellbeing and performance, urging managers to recognize and help reduce stress for members of their team through a combination of social support and sufficient sleep.
