Building a Culture of Psychological Safety & Belonging in Legal Practice

Resilience Training for Lawyers & Legal Professionals

Webinar

Overview

Please join us for this four-part series designed to help lawyers and legal professionals avoid burnout and increase resilience — improving individual well-being, decision-making and client service. The once-a-month sessions are designed to build skills over time. However, the series is structured so that you may attend sessions individually as well.

In the first part of the series, “Building a Culture of Psychological Safety & Belonging in Legal Practice,” Paula Davis will discuss how the foundation of high-performing and resilient teams is psychological safety. It’s the belief that you can show up to work as your authentic self, ask tough questions, disagree, and propose innovative ideas without fear that you will be singled out, penalized or thought less of for doing so. This session will also:

  • Provide strategies for lawyers to develop this competency both for in-person and virtual/hybrid teams.
  • Talk about the science of belonging and why it’s a critical psychological need to develop at work
  • Discuss how to build “humble curiosity” — listening to learn perspective that deepens relationships versus listening to fix or listening to win (which are common listening styles that lawyers use)
  • Teach a fun framework to help solidify strong relationships (at work and outside of work), which is based on capitalizing on shared good news and success.

The other three sessions are:
