DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Law firms devote significant resources and time to hiring and training women lawyers, but this investment is meaningless if they leave. The negative impact of workplace inequities can lead to departure: simply put, when a lawyer’s work/life equation doesn’t add up at one firm, she’ll look for a firm where it does. 


To address the issue, ALL leaders must be a part of the inclusion conversation. 


Men in particular, many in senior positions, need to be invited to share responsibility and contribute to solving for the systemic issues within our firms.


In this training, we  will use evidenced based behavioral models to equip men, managers and leaders to intentionally advance women in their businesses through the way they recruit, retain and work more effectively with women.


Rather than focusing on the negative and what not to do and say, we focus on inclusion and empathy in a quickly changing world

BURNOUT: THE BIG IDEA THAT'S TOO SMALL TO FAIL

This is our most  frequently requested program from leadership, as we all have a stake in “overruling” burnout in the legal profession. Chronic stress inhibits problem solving, interferes with concentration, and is linked to burnout. In this program, we will cover the following:

  • Recognizing the signs of burnout
  • Learning the difference between stress and burnout and the nuanced differences in handling each
  • Describing how to create and implement flexible work policies, smart meetings, rest periods and more


While it is impossible to completely eliminate stress from the workplace, this program will teach you to implement more mindful, respectful working practices. 

As Editor at Large for Thrive Global's Overcoming Lawyer Burnout platform, Anjali will share her unique insights, tips and small micro-steps to prevent and overturn burnout: the micro steps that are too small to fail! 


AUTHENTIC CONVERSATIONS ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH

The legal profession is aware that mental health issues are prevalent, but we often don't realize the biases we have. This training raises awareness about mental health challenges, and focuses on resilience, communication and prioritizing personal wellbeing as we break the stigma around mental health. 

BUILDING MULTI-GENERATIONAL TEAMS TO INCREASE CONNECTEDNESS AND WELLBEING

Lawyers are increasingly committed to creating truly diverse law firms, but more still needs to be done. In this training, we will discuss increased innovation through multi- generational teams, the importance of both diversity and inclusion with multi-generational groups, and the competitive advantage of having a wide array of perspectives. 

LESS HUSTLE, MORE FLOW

The power of organization is one of the most overlooked, yet critical, elements to our overall wellbeing. 


Clutter and disorganization at work and at home can cause a sense of overwhelm, problems concentrating, lack of efficiency, stress and anxiety.


 7 Steps is one of our most requested programs, and you will walk away knowing more about the following:

-Activities List and Ideal Week

-Morning, Work, and Nightly Routines: Get More Sh*t Done

-The Cheapest Personal Assistant

- Batching and Multi- Switching

- Work Organization: Email, Files, Projects

- Home: Food, (Eating Well at Home and While Traveling) Closet, Kids

- Staying on Track

MINDFUL MEDITATION FOR LAWYERS WHO SAY THEY HATE MEDITATING

Meditation can be a polarizing word: lovers can't live without it, but haters often consider it to the a complete waste of time. In this training, we will cover topics like why mindful meditation doesn't have to suck, how to meditate with just 2 minutes a day, and how you can use your Spotify playlist to amp up your meditation game.
