The seminar will take a unique look at the links between leader behaviours and the mental health of team members. By combining a comprehensive look at the personality characteristics of legal professionals and the latest research on team dynamics of professionals, this session will highlight the role leaders and colleagues play in the mental health of professionals. Managing the pressure to perform and keeping up with the future demands of work are all areas where leaders can take specific steps to build healthy teams.
This session is a sneak peak of Anna’s new book Leading Legal Professionals bringing together her fifteen years of experience in training leaders in professional services and the latest research on motivating professionals.
