FOR YOUR ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATION:
Invite your clients. Law firms often host programs with clients and ask us to speak about these topics, particularly resilience, stress, and burnout. Many of your clients are large organizations that are experiencing stress, burnout, change, and complexity and have an interest in (and need for) these tools and frameworks. These joint programs have been some of the most well-attended and popular we have delivered.
Consider the impact to your diversity & inclusion programs: These topics can be particularly impactful when talking to women and diverse attorneys about their experiences practicing law and informing retention efforts.
Include spouses, significant others & key family members. Paula was honored to help pilot the Army’s resilience training course for spouses, and family members and friends are often on the receiving end of the stress and challenges lawyers bring home and often don’t know what to do to help. Paula recently spoke to a group of spouses at a partner retreat, and to say that they were eager to talk, vent, and get more resources, was an understatement.
Learn from a soldier. Paula’s friend and colleague, Lt. Col. Sylvia Lopez, travels with her on occasion to talk about how resilience skills have informed her leadership style, help her manage stress, and how she continues to teach these skills today as a senior officer in the military. Col. Lopez’s remarks are impactful and well-received by attorneys and legal professionals at all levels of practice.
We look forward to being a trusted resource for you and your firm.
