    Friday Conversation with Sarah Giles, former head of HR, now confidence and resilience coach

    For our first episode of 2022, I was delighted to be joined for a chat by Sarah Giles.

    Sarah and I met a few years ago and were united in our shared passion for lawyer wellbeing.

    In this episode, Sarah shares with me why she decided to leave HR after 16 years and to create her own business as a confidence and resilience coach in the pandemic, alongside homeschooling!

    We discuss the mindset shifts it takes to build your own business and also Sarah shares her tips for building more confidence and resilience.

    Friday Conversation with Steve Lawlor, Mental Health Lawyer and MD of Lawlor's Law Limited

    Friday Conversation with Steve Lawlor, Mental Health Lawyer and MD of Lawlor's Law Limited

    In this episode of Friday Conversations, I had a great conversation with Steve about what a Mental Health lawyer is and the sorts of work he gets involved with. 

    I asked Steve to tell us how he "decompresses" after a day dealing with very challenging work.  He shared the importance of creating space away from work and having strong boundaries around work time and home time. 

    Steve also told us a little about his journey in starting his own business Lawlor's Law Limited. 

    He is also the host of the Legal Wolf Podcast talking about the stigma around mental health and how to challenge it.

    Friday Conversations, interview with Viktor Osasu, banking & finance lawyer and mentor

    Friday Conversations, interview with Viktor Osasu, banking & finance lawyer and mentor

    In this episode of Friday Conversations, I had a fantastic chat with Viktor Osasu a banking and finance lawyer, mentor to junior lawyers and speaker on fishing for talent in unconventional pools.

    Viktor discusses how we can "fish for talent" in unconventional places and also the importance of mentoring to both junior and senior lawyers. 

    On 11th September Viktor will be hosting his first mentoring masterclass on How to Kick-start a Successful Career - Things I wish I knew. It is aimed at those who are just qualifying or starting new roles and jobs.

    Success is a decision and too many times we fall into this programmed pattern of living to work but if there's anything this pandemic (and the lockdowns) have taught us, it is that life is transient and therefore we must live purposefully. In this masterclass, Viktor and guests will be discussing (amongst other things) having a career vision, core value index, setting goals, major pitfalls to avoid and visualising what true success looks like.

    To register your interest for the masterclass, please visit https://bit.ly/38AwBWQ
