    Given that in any firm your most important assets are your people and your clients, this webinar will help those involved in law firm management, disaster preparedness and crisis management gain a better understanding of the “human factor” in a crisis. This knowledge will better prepare your law firm and workforce for any situation that could affect your firm and your business reputation.

    Nashville, Uvalde, Parkland, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Charlottesville, Minneapolis, the Midwest and Southeast: all sites of horrific traumatic events in the last several years. We see daily news reports with graphic images of people who are survivors of wildfires, flooding, hurricanes, terrorist attacks, bombings, riots/protests or adults and children dealing with the aftermath of active shooter situations. Even a global pandemic has changed our lives and turned our work environment, our law firms and the wellness of our employees upside down. But how often have we taken the time to really think about what happens to us as individuals when we experience traumatic or stressful events?

     

    Behavioral response to stressful incidents or crises and what is happening in the brain can be broken down into psychological stages that help to explain why individuals react in certain ways as they experience trauma. Given that in any firm your most important assets are your people and your clients, this webinar will help those involved in law firm management, disaster preparedness and crisis management gain a better understanding of the “human factor” in a crisis. This knowledge will better prepare your law firm and workforce for any situation that could affect your firm and your business reputation.  

    Objectives             

    ·      Discuss today's stressful workplace environment and understand how important it is for law firm managers and professionals to have a handle on the mental health of their lawyers and staff.

    ·       Discover that behavioral response to stressful incidents both inside and outside the workplace environment, and the reaction in an individual’s brain, can be broken down into psychological stages that help to explain why individuals react in certain ways as they experience trauma.

    ·      Identify the “Denial, Deliberation, Decision” psychological phases and provide real-life examples that law firm managers can relate to in understanding the “human factor” and mental health and wellness issues in their law firms.

    ·      Prepare law firm managers to better handle any situation or threat (from either outside the firm or between/among co-workers) that could affect their firm, their employees and their business reputation.

We’re talking about leading your firm to a place where using technology makes sense — not just because it’s new, but because it truly fits into how you want to work and where you want to go.
