Lawyering involves stress and lots of it. It goes with the territory, and it is impossible to avoid it. But it is not impossible to manage. You must learn how to handle stress for your own sake, the sake of your loved ones, and career satisfaction and success. With our all-new program, attorney and litigator Cheyne Scott discusses innovative techniques for addressing the stress points all lawyers share-- the difficult boss, the demanding judge, the obstinate adversary, and the grueling deadlines. Our speaker has walked in your shoes. She will show you a different path for handling the stresses of practice to find equanimity amid chaos and uncertainty and take personal satisfaction in the work that you do.

Topics include:

  • What is mindfulness and why is it important to lawyers and managing partners?

  • Understanding Stress

  • 3 Common Fears

  • Perfectionism

  • Worst Case Scenario Thinking

  • Addiction to Panic

  • Lack of Boundaries

  • Loneliness

  • Victim Mindset

  • Getting started with stress management- mindfulness, meditation, and yoga and other tools
