Stanford Law School WellnessCast Podcast: Interview of Anne Brafford about Positive Professionals

WellnessCast™ Conversation with Anne Brafford, JD, MAPP, Author of Positive Professionals: Creating High-Performing, Profitable Firms Through the Science of Engagement

What are three things a managing partner in Biglaw should do if she is concerned about attrition at the firm?  What are mindsets and how should law firm associates and partners use them to create a more positive work life?  How should firms encourage their associates to grow by valuing psychological safety over perfection?  Join Stanford Law Professor Joe Bankman and Sarah Weinstein, a lawyer and psychotherapist, for an uplifting conversation with positive organizational psychology expert, Anne Brafford, JD, MAPP, as she shares a few of the many valuable insights in her new book, Positive Professionals: Creating High-Performing, Profitable Firms Through the Science of Engagement.  In addition to offering specific guidance for creating more positive firms, the episode begins with a particularly poignant ‘hard moment’ from Anne, where she shares an experience of choosing to be a good human being, instead of an aggressive lawyer, during a deposition.  We end with a discussion of our experiences trying out the wellness technique from last month and hearing about a stress mindset technique that Anne uses to thrive in her own life.   Recorded: November 21, 2017
