    151: Speaking Powerfully: 3 Words to Stop Using for Greater Clarity and Confidence

    151: Speaking Powerfully: 3 Words to Stop Using for Greater Clarity and Confidence

    We’re at the very beginning of spring, which means it's time for spring cleaning for many of us. Your mind might immediately turn to decluttering your physical space, whether that’s your house, office space, or wardrobe, and experiencing the satisfaction that comes from the visual effect of before-and-after. However, while less tangible, I’m inviting you to spring-clean your speech this week.
     
    The language you use on a daily basis might seem innocuous, but there is profound power that comes from making subtle shifts. Hear about three overused expressions that we use to our own detriment, and learn simple edits that will tidy up your speech and help you communicate with more clarity and confidence.

    148: What Coaching Can and Cannot Do for You

    148: What Coaching Can and Cannot Do for You

    If you’re currently thinking about working with a coach and you’re wondering what you can expect, or how that relationship might unfold, listen in this week as I delineate what your coach can and cannot help you with.
     
    I share both the possibilities and the limits that come with coaching. I’m answering the question of how working with a coach can create transformations in your life, what a coach cannot help you do, and questions that will help you figure out how a specific coach you might want to work with can support you toward your goals.

    147: Your Mentors Are Out There. Here’s How You Find Them.

    A lack of mentorship is a common theme I’ve observed among the lawyers I’m in conversation with. Both junior and senior lawyers face the challenge of finding a mentor who supports, inspires, and connects with them on a deep level, and there are a number of reasons why cultivating a mentorship relationship can feel difficult.
     
    If you’re currently seeking out a mentorship relationship but don’t know where to start, listen in this week. I’m offering you a three-phase process that will help you create the mentorship relationships you want and need, questions to ask yourself that will provide clarity on the mentor you’re looking for, and my top tips on being a great mentee.

A Must Listen!

This podcast tackles the questions I’m constantly facing. Paula Price provides actionable advice that has greatly impacted me and my practice. I quit my big law job to launch my own boutique immigration practice and this podcast helps me manage things and get out of my own way. This is a must listen for anyone balancing life and law!

Excellent podcast for women lawyers

I stumbled on this podcast via Audible while on parental leave and I couldn’t be happier about it. Working in big law, now with three kiddos, is not for the faint of heart, and this podcast is just what I am needing to restore myself and prepare for my return to practice after my leave. Each episode is right on point with a thought-provoking lesson and practical tips I can apply to my practice and life. The podcast is also optimistic about a woman’s ability to create and maintain a joyful law practice, which is a welcomed change from the usual doom and gloom that I often hear about being a woman and mom in the practice.
