I’ve been passionate about the legal profession for many years but now focus on people rather than files, and happiness rather than billing.
Since pursuing my own journey to find “happiness” internally, rather than by reference to the latest promotion, pay rise, new house or new business, I’ve developed my top tips and skills to pass on to other busy professionals who might be on the edge of burnout, or feel something is missing from their stressful lives. I want to help stop the rising numbers of people suffering the effects of fatigue and full on burnout.
The tide is turning and business is realising that a happy workforce is a more productive workforce. Healthy and happy employees will impact the bottom line.
A vital part of happiness and success is learning to be “authentically you” rather than who people might expect. People buy people and law is no exception. When professionals are comfortable being themselves and bringing who they are to what they do, their clients will buy into that in a powerful way.
My USP is bringing first-hand experience of large law firms over 10 years and of running my own legal business, to my training and coaching. I take my knowledge of the profession and the pressures faced by those at the front line, and meld understanding with a genuine desire to change the myth that law has to be stressful. Lawyers and other professionals alike have found my honest and heartfelt approach encourages them to think more deeply about what changes they would like to see in their own lives. My training and coaching provides hands on help and support for a longer term transformation.
The way to happiness
Can you really make yourself happier?
The evidence suggests that you can, how should you go about this without major life changing actions?
Goal Setting & Planning with a difference
Setting goals and writing these down makes you 42% more likely to achieve them.
Being accountable to someone for your goals makes you 85% more likely to acheive them.
I use visualisation, vision boards and a 12 month planner exercise to help find real clarity aroud what you want to achieve in the short and medium term.
Reducing the 95%
95% of lawyers surveyed in 2013 reported suffering moderate to severe stress, what can we do to change this?
