WOMEN’S LAW SECTION SPRING PROGRAM: USING GRIT AND A GROWTH MINDSET TO ADVANCE YOUR CAREER IN THE LAW
CLE CREDITS: 1.0 (Provided to MSBA members only)
(This event was originally scheduled for April 12. All registrations for April 12 will be transferred and honored on May 3. If you registered for April 12 and cannot attend on May 3, please contact Heather Seavey for a refund.)
A 2012 study looked at successful female attorneys and found they shared two common traits: grit and a growth mindset. Whether you are an associate on the track to partnership, a solo practitioner, a government attorney, a legal aid attorney, a mediator, or a member of in-house counsel, one thing is for sure – the traits of grit and perseverance will affect the success of your career. Your mindset can be the key to your success.
Please join the WLS on April 12 to participate in a hands-on, practical program that will educate participants about the science behind these traits, provide attendees with tools to assess their levels of grit and growth mindset, and offer practical ways to incorporate these concepts in career development and personal growth. We will act out and discuss how to deal with several hypothetical but common scenarios in small groups, such as being overwhelmed with work, having a billing dispute with a client,losing a big motion, not being invited to firm outings, dealing with difficult opposing counsel or supervisors, and being bullied in a deposition. You will get to choose what scenarios you participate in, to tailor this program to the issues most applicable to your practice. Ultimately, we want to help you develop a grit and growth mindset that will help you stay engaged and growing in your legal career for the long haul.
