As a General Counsel, you are being asked to sort through unprecedented developments in the legal profession while leading your team through uncertain and unpredictable times as we all sort through the COVID19 pandemic.
Dr. Larry Richard, an organizational psychologist and former practicing lawyer discusses the nature of the psychological disruption caused by the crisis, and its impact on lawyer performance, well-being, decision-making and risk management.
He provides a dozen concrete, practical, evidence-based techniques for coping with the disruption and restoring psychological equilibrium and emotional well-being, including specific steps that leaders should take to restore predictability, a sense of control, and social connection among your people. He finishes with an interactive clinic.
Some of the strategies that Dr. Richard covers include:
- Four techniques that immediately relieve feelings of stress or anxiety
- Three techniques that build long-term resilience and equip us to become more resistant to future stressors
- Three techniques that build positive resources which are particularly powerful for leading in a crisis
Dr. Richard, also referred to as “the leading expert on the psychology of lawyer behavior” has spent his career guiding the leaders of in-house legal teams and law firms in how to manage the “people” side of their business, and to improve performance, motivation and engagement.
