Practice Management Tune Up – Fall Workshop

Written by Allison Wolf

Did you start this week with a feeling of tension in your belly or a tightness in your shoulders?

Or was it worse? A feeling of dread, or overwhelm, accompanied by the thought “how am I going to get it all done?”

Please know you are not alone.

To help members of our legal community start the fall on a positive note, lawyer coach Janiene Chand and I are are running a workshop on how to make the shift from overwhelm to “I’ve got this.”

The “I’ve got this” formula has three parts:

  • Dealing with the external obstacles
  • Tuning up systems and processes
  • Identifying and overcoming internal obstacles

Join us on Friday, September 23 at noon Pacific for a dynamic workshop that will give you a set of tools and insights to up your practice management foundation this fall.

You will receive:

  • Access to the live 60-minute workshop
  • Access to a recording of the workshop following the event
  • Resources
  • Will seek approval from the Law Society of BC for 1 CPD credits

Date and time:

  • Friday September 23, 2022
  • 12:00pm to 1:00pm

  • $20/plus GST 

Why are we charging a fee?  After much thought we decided to charge a small fee so that registrants are committed and accountable to attend the session and implement strategies in the days that follow.
