    Closed Captioned.

    The "culture of perfectionism" has encouraged maladaptive coping techniques and led lawyers to conceal mistakes, often times to the firm and the clients' detriment. Panelists will define perfectionism, the wonder of "adaptive" perfectionism and the dangers of maladaptive perfectionism; provide strategies on how to start taming your inner perfectionist and provide simple and life-changing tools to manage perfectionistic tendencies. Panelists will also examine how perfectionism manifests itself in more experienced practitioners, and consider how educating partners/supervisors on how to create psychological safety/culture of tolerance/acceptance/understanding in a firm setting can benefit junior lawyers in feeling more secure in admitting mistakes or seeking help before things go awry in the first place.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn about the phenomenon of perfectionism and understand the benefits of "adaptive" perfectionism and the dangers of maladaptive perfectionism
    • Discover strategies on taming your inner perfectionist and provide simple and best practices to manage perfectionistic tendencies
    • Uncover ways in which maladaptive perfectionism and the fear of making mistakes can impact on client matters, firm liability, and your professional license
    • Identify ways to educate partners/supervisors on how to create psychological safety/culture of tolerance/acceptance/understanding in a firm setting & how that can benefit junior lawyers in feeling more secure in admitting mistakes or seeking help before things go awry in the first place.
