Change, complexity, and the 24/7 “always on” pace of work have increased stress for lawyers. Add to that a global pandemic, work-from-home shifts, and additional responsibilities for caregivers, and lawyers' stress levels are now at an all-time high.

Join Paula Davis, founder and CEO of the Stress & Resilience Institute (and frequent contributor to Coalition newsletters) for a program that will provide specific skills and strategies to help you and your teams be at your resilient best.

Paula will offer tools to better adapt to these challenges and continue to develop into agile leaders. Additionally, Paula will discuss effective collaboration, innovation, and how to generally navigate the uncertainty present in your practice, as well as return-to-work conversations that require teams to quickly adapt to stress and challenges. 

The first 50 Coalition members to register for the program (and log into the Zoom event) will receive a free electronic copy of Paula's new book, Beating Burnout at Work: Why Teams Hold the Secret to Well-Being & Resilience.
