Practising law is not easy. Lawyers are driven, hard-working, and committed individuals who often look after their clients and their firms over and above themselves. Lawyers can also be their own worst critics.
With the right tools in place, individuals can have a happy and sustainable career. The Learning @ Lawganised Wellbeing programs aim to offer some of these tools and to encourage lawyers to look after themselves and to look after each other.
At Lawganised, we also know that these programs are but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to wellbeing. If you or your firm are seeking to implement a broader wellbeing program, or are looking to enhance your team's cohesion and culture, please contact us to discuss some of our bespoke cultural initiatives for legal practices.
Resilience – a must 60 minutes | 1 CPD Point | For all team members
Working in the legal profession means daily doses of stress, competition, challenges, and adversity. Resilience is the key requirement that enables us to overcome and move through daily occurrences. This workshop explores the stressors that lawyers experience every day, why we need resilience, and offers practical tools to teach lawyers how to keep their resilience reservoirs full.
Healthy Habits – what they are and how to create them 60 minutes | 1 CPD Point | For all team members
A large part of our day is formed by habits, often more than we realise. When we create healthy habits, we are automating portions of our lives to help maintain our psychological and physical health and build resilience. This workshop looks at the healthy habits that lawyers can create to assist them in dealing with the everyday stressors of life in a law firm, and outside of their working hours too. Participants will walk away armed with tools to help them identify unhealthy habits and replace them with healthy habits.
