21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

These 21 life-changing principles – or laws of leadership – were created by John C. Maxwell, pulling from his thirty-plus years of leadership experience. These laws, when accepted as governing ideals in your personal and organizational effectiveness, can transform your entire life. The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership were created with other leaders’ successes and failures in mind, and include observations in the areas of business, politics, sports, religion and military conflict. The course is designed to be a study of leadership that delves into common mistakes and pitfalls and the accompanying consequences of not allowing your direction to be guided by these irrefutable laws. But it is also a course to teach you how to be a leader – to equip you with the know-how to lead others when these laws are applied to your life and leadership. You will find success – and people will follow you – when you learn to follow these 21 laws of leadership.

M&A Due Diligence Integration – Synergies

You’ve been assigned a major task—your firm has put you in charge of conducting due diligence for an upcoming merger. Your work will be vital to the deal’s success, as well as to your firm’s relationship with its client. Digging into a potential acquisition, and spotting any red flags in the company’s operations is an essential job for a lawyer.

However, the amount of work that due diligence entails can make  unsure about where to begin. The process may seem overwhelming. First things first: you need an M&A due diligence checklist.

Don’t attempt to do eight things at once—without a diligence process structure, this means you could go astray in eight different ways. With a checklist as your roadmap, you will know what you need to look for, how much time you have to find it, and who to send it to. Your job becomes far more manageable.
