David Bashford is described by peers as “a true trailblazer who exceeds expectations, challenges conventional wisdom and is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in a law firm.” Lending to this is David’s unique approach to leadership.
“Business is personal,” he says, believing that a myriad of problems, legal and otherwise, may be avoided if individual impacts are considered as an integral part of making business decisions.
David recommends this decision-making exercise:
- Make two columns.
- Column 1: List the ways the decision impacts the business.
- Column 2: List the ways the decision impacts others.
- Give both columns equal weight in analyzing and finalizing the best course of action.
