“Next Step” candidates are senior level attorneys currently reporting to a General Counsel, but who aspire to the GC role. Stewart Hirsch wrote an interesting three-part series on this topic for Inside Counsel, in conjunction with IC’s “R3-100” initiative (designed to identify 100 senior level female inside counsel who could become GCs within the next three years). Stewart focuses on soft skills that are definitely worth considering, developing and honing. My tips are more in the nature of practical “to do” items, and I think complement Stewart’s thoughts.
