  5. Addressing the 6 Core Causes of Burnout for Your Legal Team
    Tuesday, May 16 | 2:40-3:10pm

    Burnout has become one of the most talked about workplace topics in the legal profession and beyond, and its impact is far-reaching. The 24/7 pace of legal work, unpredictability and uncertainty, geopolitical unrest, and a recession have put lawyers and legal professionals on a path to burnout, a cycle that only accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Burnout affects the health and well-being of the entire legal organization, yet most attempts to help focus on quick-fix strategies aimed at individuals. Something is missing. In this program, Paula will focus on helping legal teams identify and better understand the six core causes of burnout with actionable strategies to address each cause.
