In law school, we learn to approach any statement as an assertion that needs to be interrogated or analyzed. The problem arises when we carry that way of thinking over into conversations in our personal lives.
On this episode of The Lawyer Stress Solution, I’m excited to talk about one of my favorite topics – the way that thinking and talking like a lawyer impacts your personal relationships outside of work to a less-than-desirable outcome. I explain how you can keep your lawyer brain at bay and stop defaulting to being on either attack or defense at all times when communicating with others.
Don’t miss this episode’s useful tools and strategies that will help you transform how you think about your communication and interactions with people around you.
