Purpose Driven Leadership with Teresa Payne

This week we are joined by Teresa Payne for what I believe is a real master class in leadership.


Teresa is a solicitor and the Managing Partner at regional law firm Parfitt Cresswell, where she has spent the past 15 years developing and growing the legal teams that serve clients across London, Berkshire, Surrey, Sussex and Kent.


She didn’t take the traditional route to qualification as a solicitor and her legal journey didn’t start until she found herself dealing with her own divorce.


Her experience was the driver to qualification and has formed her commitment to providing access to great legal services and information for all. This is something we talk about in this episode and I found it truly fascinating to learn how this deep sense of purpose shapes everything she has done since.


On top of that, we spoke about delegation – and why we often find it so hard. We also explored service-based leadership, recruitment, making time to plan and so much more.


Teresa is also the author of two books, ‘The Good Divorce Guide’ and ‘The Later Living Guide’, which you can find via the prize draw using the link in the show notes. 

Before we get into this episode, head over to the Online Course page of my website – – where you can sign up for my 10-4-10 Leadership Course. It’s totally free, it’s bite-sized, and it covers some of the most common leadership topics and challenges I get asked about. It also gets consistently great feedback.
