Managing Competing Priorities
Learn tactics for managing competing projects and deadlines, and how to say “no” without committing career suicide.
If you’re like most associates, you receive work from more than one superior, or work provider. While this can be a tremendous benefit to your career—exposing you to a broader range of knowledge and experience, enhancing the development of your legal skills, and increasing your profile within the firm—it’s not all sunshine and roses. It also means that you’re constantly managing competing priorities and deadlines, while regularly adjusting and readjusting to fit everything in.
