Always positive, always practical. That’s how I teach.
I offer short training sessions to the support staff of law firms to better deal with stress, be more resilient, change their outlook and be more motivated.
Wellness training for Legal PAs, Legal Executive Assistants and support staff of law firms
I focus on wellness training for Legal PAs, Legal Executive Assistants, and law firms’ support staff because I know that the challenges these groups face are very different from those of a law firm’s fee-earning staff.
The support staff of a law firm don’t have the career progression opportunities of fee earners, earn less, usually can’t afford to employ au pairs or nannies to help with child care, and are more likely to have their roles outsourced or made redundant during a restructuring. Yet they are privy to the type of confidential information that can significantly increase their stress levels and are always expected to be highly efficient, responsive and detail orientated. I know this from having worked as a Legal PA for more than 20 years.
Wellness training for law firms tailored to the specific needs of legal support teams
Training always includes fascinating, easy-to-understand science that backs why the practical interventions and exercises I suggest, work. Sessions are made as interactive as possible with real-world examples that a Legal PA and other legal support staff members would encounter, video clips, Zoom polls and/or worksheets and last 1 hour with the flexibility of up to 15 minutes either way. The training is ideal for monthly “lunch and learn” sessions.
