Why Your Law Firm Should Adopt a Growth Mindset

The difference between a firm that’s thriving and happy with its trajectory and one that struggles and languishes comes down to mindset. Firms that adopt a growth mindset establish a culture and business that tries new things and prioritizes the client experience. On the other hand, firms with a fixed or limiting mindset will remain static.

You’ve heard the saying, “If you think you can’t, you’re right.” Well, whether you think you can’t change or change just simply seems daunting at this stage in your firm’s existence, we want to share how your firm can shift your mindset by providing a few actionable ways to help you lean into growth.

Ways To Prioritize Growth at Your Firm

At backdocket, we understand that for an entire team to have a growth mindset, firm leaders must understand what growth means to them. Growth can mean different things depending on the size of your firm and what your focused practice areas are. But regardless of what growth means, every firm should know the following:

  • Growth is about taking care of your clients. Addressing your clients’ needs can help you define a growth strategy. How can you best communicate with them? What systems are required to smoothly see the life cycle of a case to fruition? And what makes your firm a better choice than your competitors? These are questions that can help steer the ship toward growth.  
  • Set clear expectations for communication with your team. A good rule of thumb when setting expectations for your firm is to make sure they are actually achievable and that they’re measurable with an ideal timeline attached to them. Clarity is critical here and will help everyone get on the same page and will attract new lawyers with a similar growth mindset. 
  • Embrace new technology. It’s important that your firm not cling to antiquated processes for running your practice. This is where growth mindset is critical. Better technology improves efficiency, productivity, security, and more. For example, a solid practice management software for your firm can assist with everything we mention here. From client satisfaction, communication, team productivity, and profits, streamlining these areas of business scream “growth mindset.”
