Terri Krivosha featured in St. Paul Pioneer Press's ‘Executive Read'
June 26, 2006
Recognized as a business leader in the Twin Cities, Terri Krivosha, Chair of Maslon's Governance Committee, was invited to participate in the St. Paul Pioneer Press's “Executive Read” section in the Sunday, June 25, 2006, issue. The section highlights area business leaders' book recommendations.
In her article, Krivosha recommends “Aligning the Stars: How to Succeed When Professionals Drive Results,” by Jay W. Lorsch and Thomas J. Tierney. According to her review, “This book makes the point that the key to ‘competitive success is building star talent.’”
“Lorsch and Tierney help their readers understand the need for a professional services organization to invest in its ‘star’ professionals by attracting, identifying, developing, retaining and motivating star talent,” she explains in the review. “The authors, one a professor at Harvard and the other the former chief executive of Bain & Company identified 18 professional services firms for the study on which they based their book. The book is filled with many examples and is extremely useful reading for those running professional service firms, units or practice groups within their firms. If a business is currently engaged or anticipates engaging in a strategic planning process, this book is a ‘must read’ for everyone on the team.”
Krivosha, a member of Maslon's Business & securities Practice Group since 1993 and chair of the firm's Governance Committee since 2003, assists businesses of all sizes in: initial formation, capitalization, growth through merger or acquisition, governance, and general business matters. She also represents companies as they negotiate joint ventures, distribution agreements, licensing transactions and other complex relationships. Krivosha earned her law degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
