Molly McGrath: Hire, Empower, Communicate, and Demonstrate

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Molly McGrath discuss:

  • The greatest employment tools you have as a business owner.
  • Attracting players and keeping key employees.
  • Reinventing the hiring process to catch the rockstar candidates.
  • What lawyers want more than money and perks.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s not just about the money. It is about the time, the attention, the resources, the communication, and the feedback with you and your employees.
  • People are not job hunting. They are digging into coaching and self-discovery. You have to outsource hiring because you have to sell your firm, yourself, and your company.
  • Investing in your people, invest in yourself, invest in your culture, invest in coaching. This will help to attract and retain employees.
  • Lawyers want firms that are flexible and progressive in their thinking and business models.


“When you hire someone, it is a relationship and not a transaction. The greatest retention tool, the greatest hiring tool, even if you cannot compete with big firm salaries, if you can communicate and demonstrate that you are invested in the relationship with an employee and you give them consistent time, attention and feedback they’ll take your job over anybody else’s.” —  Molly McGrath
