Uncovering and Navigating Blind Spots Before They Become Land Mines
Neuroscience and behavioral science health research has shown that being aware of our emotional state and expanding our emotional intelligence yields multiple benefits for our professional and personal lives.  As legal professionals we may experience ambiguity, stress, abrasiveness, unreasonableness, ethical dilemmas and other unsettling situations. We also interact with and serve a variety of people every day, all of which, we owe some kind of duty - professionalism, civility, respect, zealous representation, candor, diligence, prudence and courtesy. This interactive course on Oct. 2 offers tools to help you recognize your blind spots and modify your "reactions" to challenging situations so you can maintain your professionalism, competence and discretion, and remain centered.
