YLDers, be sure and check out this great post about how young lawyers can differentiate themselves in their careers. The article builds on a new book from Adam Bryant called The Corner Office: Indispensable and Unexpected Lessons From CEOs on How to Lead and Succeed. Bryant discusses the five qualities that he believes will propel you to success in the workplace.

The article focuses on one quality, “Passionate Curiosity,” which Bryant defines as the continued need to learn. He describes the successful CEO’s job as “a student of human nature,” a concept that all of us as attorneys should be familiar with. Whether you are studying human nature in the courtroom or with your corporate clients, understanding human nature is an essential characteristic of a successful attorney. Check out the article for four other qualities that Bryant claims will set you apart from the crowd.
