How Important Are You to Your Law firm?

The recent story of Steve Jobs stepping down from his CEO position at Apple got me thinking.  Universally, the stories being run talk about the importance of Steve Jobs to that company.  I wonder how many CEOs are considered as important to their company’s success as Steve Jobs?  My guess is that the answer is “not many.”

As Mr. Jobs steps down from his stewardship over one of the most successful company turnaround stories in history, it is a good time for each of us to ask ourselves:  “How important are we to our company?” I’ve always said that the proof of value for any employee is the impact their departure would have on the firm.  Our goal as employees should be to achieve the status of “invaluable” just like Steve Jobs.
