021: A Winning Recipe for a Happy and Successful Lawyer (and Team!)
Play • 19 min

Here at CGL, we are all about promoting happiness and balance for our team. Even before the pandemic, we were having conversations about the relationship we as a society have with work. These conversations are now at the forefront for many other employees in the country as well. Because of this greater emphasis on balance in the workplace, the issue of burnout and a lack of work-life balance has been coming up a lot.


So today we want to share our thoughts on balancing happiness and success with the realities of legal practice. We want to provide some insight into how we here at CGL think we’re making a difference, while also identifying areas where we still have work to do. We hope that by bringing up these issues and having an honest conversation about them, the topic will stay on your mind.


We want to see more options for attorneys and all white-collar professionals who crave balance and happiness. This is an attainable goal that just comes down to changing the narrative around work. Tune in to hear ideas that will give you some food for thought on this topic.


In this episode, you will hear:

  • Why burnout is so prevalent for attorneys.
  • The dangers of attorney burnout.
  • The lack of work-life balance in the legal system.
  • How to create a healthy work-life balance.
  • Our three principles here at CGL for promoting a happy and successful legal team.
