10. Season Finale with Dr. Heidi Gardner: Smart Collaboration


In the tenth and final episode of Season One of the HALB Leadership Podcast, we speak to Dr. Heidi Gardner. She is Distinguished Fellow at the Center on the Legal Profession at Harvard Law School and Faculty Chair of Harvard Law School's Accelerated Leadership Program. She’s also the author of the book “Smart Collaboration: How Professionals and Their Firms Succeed by Breaking Down Silos.”

In this episode, we talk about Dr. Gardner’s research findings on collaboration, the effect of collaboration on law firm revenue, why cross-selling and collaboration are NOT the same thing, and what law students or junior lawyers can do to start training themselves to identify and address complex, higher-level problems (that clients don’t mind paying for.)
