HeadStart™ for Law Firm Business Services Leaders

Slash the time required to get your new business services leader fully acclimated and productive.

What We Do > Leadership Advisory > HeadStart™ for Business Services Leaders

A customized onboarding program for your new executive is critical for their effectiveness and is proven to influence retention.

Calibrate’s HeadStart™ program gives your new business services leader the opportunity to shave up to three months off of the onboarding period – saving your firm valuable time and money.

Instead of spending the initial months hunkered down and on a scavenger hunt for information, your leader will be able to act from a position of strength and knowledge, thereby being free to focus on building critical relationships and accelerating their contribution to the firm.
