Although you're a good - even great - lawyer, you've come to realize success requires more than good lawyering skills. And law school didn't exactly cover the mindset, legal marketing, law practice management or business strategies you need to build the legal career and law practice you want. What's more is that you don’t want to burn out in the process - you want to be able to prioritize your physical and mental health. But is it reasonable to expect to have work life balance as a lawyer? Can you improve your business, rainmaking & leadership skills without spending a ton of time (you don't have)? Is it possible to have a truly fulfilling legal career while making good money? Yes (to all of the above). Join Heather Moulder, former AmLaw 100 partner turned lawyer leadership and business coach, each week to get practical tools, real-world insight and proven strategies for becoming the impactful lawyer and leader you want to be. Personal and professional development topics covered by Heather and her guests include: lawyer wellbeing and mental health, business development, emotional intelligence, career development, cultivating a growth mindset, improving productivity, leadership development, and law practice management.
