“It’s time for the legal industry to start actually honoring evidence and science as it relates to well-being. ... [O}ur entire profession is premised on the notion that evidence and facts dictate everything therefrom. Yet when it comes to how we live as lawyers and legal professionals, we are the single most anti-evidentiary profession in existence…"
On this episode of Practice Well(Being) we had the honor of speaking with Jarrett Green, Esq., M.A. - a former Skadden Arps litigator who left the practice of law so he could live his passion of helping lawyers, legal professionals, corporate employees, and other high-stress individuals experience less stress, more happiness, greater focus, improved productivity, optimized cognition, and enhanced overall success. He has a Masters in Psychology with emphases on Neuroscience, Positive Psychology, and Cognitive-Behavior Psychology and is the co-founder of USC Gould School of Law’s nationally-recognized "Mindfulness, Stress Management, & Peak Performance Program." Jarrett consults and leads programs with nearly half of the AmLaw 100, and many Fortune 500 companies.
In this incredibly enriching discussion with Jarrett we challenged conditioned notions of success and default positions of thinking while offering you actionable tips like:
The single most obvious piece of evidence about what makes better legal professionals. The power of 6 minutes.The magic of “amazing errors.”We also talked about the biggest barrier to change in our industry and the small commitments we make that have the power to change everything. You will walk away from this thinking differently about the impact of practicing well-being. You can find Jarrett at Jarrett-Green.com and on LinkedIn. You can connect with Nita on LinkedIn.
