Setting boundaries is a critical element of any leader’s skillset and an important strategy for avoiding burnout. Yet far too many lawyers, law students, and legal professionals let their drive to succeed and tendency for people-pleasing prevent them from reaching their highest potential. In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn about mindsets and behaviors that lead to burnout and gain a clear understanding of how boundaries can help you break these destructive patterns. You will also walk away with a toolkit of strategies for setting and enforcing boundaries that will enhance your relationships, mitigate overwhelm, and turbocharge your performance.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
– Understand and articulate the ways in which failing to set boundaries can negatively impact health, happiness, and productivity while contributing to burnout
– Explain and implement practical strategies for helping individuals and teams identify, communicate, and enforce effective boundaries and overcome the challenges that make boundary-setting difficult in the context of the legal profession
– Apply these strategies to one aspect of their personal or professional lives around which they are looking to obtain greater balance and control
