Ep. 069 - The Problem-Solver Within

2/4/2019

As attorneys, law-students, and advocates we are trained to solve problems. We are trained to spot problems and then do whatever we have to in order to resolve that problem for our clients. As a result, if we were not before, we become problem-solvers. More importantly, we become very closely connected to the identity of being a problem-solver. As a long-time problem-solver myself, I realized that over-identifying with this professional quality often did not leave room for me to experience...

Welcome to Attorney Heart, the podcast focused on bringing awareness to and promoting attorney and professional well-being!
