Stress negatively affects our lives professionally and personally, and the legal profession is no exception. It's estimated that 80 percent of people say their job is the most stressful aspect of their lives. Furthermore, 1 million people are calling in sick to work every day due to stress — not to mention those who show up but are unproductive, unfocused or even actively sabotaging their teams. By understanding the dynamics of stress and how it impacts you and your team, you can better manage it so it doesn't stop you from being successful in your career and personal goals. This session will discuss the Happy Hour Effect framework and how it can help reprioritize the dynamics of your life with clarity, and offer fresh action for work/life happiness, health, career success and stronger relationships.


  • Recognize why and how stress impacts your personal and professional success at work and home.
  • Create a customized Life Map to help change your mindset around work/life balance.
  • Discover your stress cues and stress cures so you can better prepare for and manage the elements of your life that cause anxiety, while boosting the areas that bring you energy and happiness.
