Effective Leadership – ‘Strong & Stable’ isn’t enough…

Meyler Campbell rebrand

Very proud of my coaching alma mater Meyler Campbell, which launched a fantastic rebrand and new website last week. Have a look at: www.meylercampbell.com

Unpacking ‘Innovation’ – Moving from idea to action

One of the things I love most about coaching is watching how quickly people can move from an attitude of “I have this idea, but…” to actually implementing their ideas and projects. As lawyers, we have a natural inclination to overthink things. Add to that our highly developed sense of risk aversion and our ability…

Creativity for Lawyers 101 – Above all:

William Kentridge sums up with admirable precision the most important step for developing and enhancing creativity and driving innovation.

ON WHIPLASH (or THE TYRANNY OF PERFECTIONISM)

If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. Whiplash is one of the best films I’ve seen in ages. No matter how bad your day practicing law has been, watching that film will make you think “Damn! Well, at least I’m not a jazz drummer.” Without giving away any spoilers, Whiplash is the story of…

Stress is a rip current

Rip currents are scary. If you don’t understand their mechanism, they can be deadly. Growing up near the beach as a child, I learned early on that when you start to get dragged out to sea by a rip current, the worst thing you can do is struggle directly against it. You can’t outswim a…

“To-do list for life” Template

A lot of people have asked me to provide a template version of the “To-do list for life”.  I hesitated slightly because I think it’s important that each person choose their own categories and even their own layout.  However, since some people may find it useful, please find the attached template.  To-do List Format I…

A “To-Do” List for Life

Last time I wrote about the new format of to-do list that I created for juggling lots of different tasks at work.  Now I’m going to suggest how you can create a similar list to create some general balance in your life.  At the very least, it will help you become aware of the areas…

Today’s To-do: Make a better “to-do” list.

I’m rather a fan of to-do lists.  I find that the act of getting all the things that I have to get accomplished out of my head and onto a piece of paper helps me focus and relax, since I’m less worried about dropping one of the many balls that I’m constantly trying to juggle.…
