Good Reads for Human Resources Professionals

The February 2010 issue of Law Practice Today, the webzine published by the ABA’s Law Practice Management section, is now available and can be read in its entirety at the Law Practice Management section’s website.  I was the issue editor for this edition, which focuses on the Human Resources side of management.  The articles are great and offer lessons that apply to all industries.  They include:

Managing Your Relationships With Your Staff

Avoiding Retaliation Liability

Fostering an Entrepreneurial Spirit in Associates

Taking a Break From the Professional Hurricane

How Law Firms Can Use an Ombudsman to Resolve Conflicts

Appreciating the Difficulty Involved in HR Issues

Important Keys to Practice Success

Outsourcing Legal Support Services

Hardcore Scanning for Law Offices of Any Size

Women Rainmakers: Wanji J. Walcott, American Express

28th Edition: What’s Hot in Technology for 2010 (Podcast)

All of the articles are excellent but I want to give an extra-loud “thanks” to fellow employment-law bloggers, Jon Hyman of the Ohio Employment Law Blog, and Phil Miles of Lawffice Space, who each wrote features for the webzine.  John authored Avoiding Retaliation Liability, which deals with the hottest topic in employment litigation these days and gives great advice on how not to become a defendant in a retaliation lawsuit. And Phil wrote Fostering an Entrepreneurial Spirit in Associates, which reminds us of the undeniable link between engagement, motivation, and success.
