For many law firms, law departments, and other legal services organizations, the honest answer is not really.
Some law firms even still deny that stress and burnout are management concerns at all. Others deceive themselves into believing that giving their people time off and gym memberships will solve the problem.
In her new book, Walker Clark founding principal Lisa Walker Johnson breaks new ground in the ongoing conversation about stress and burnout in the legal profession. Instead of focusing on techniques for individuals to manage stress better in their own lives, Stress and Burnout in Law Firms probes to the roots of the problems, which often are buried deep within the operations, management practices, and professional culture of the firm. Lisa also places the responsibility squarely where it belongs, on leaders, and outlines sustainable strategies and highly effective techniques for leaders to live up to their responsibilities to their colleagues.
