ONLINE MEETING | NAVIGATING COVID: Practice Adaptation and Agility
This meeting is being hosted by the Women Lawyers Forum. 

Speaker(s): Linda Parsons, QC, Legal Coach
Time: Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 12:00pm - 1:00pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

Welcome to the second of three webinars from the BC WLF targeting YOUR questions about practicing law during COVID-19 and helping you adapt your practice!

The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected each and every lawyer’s practice. For some, it has created inconvenience, some "slowing down" of work and some general worry about the future. For others, it has created a boom and opportunity. For some it has been catastrophic. No matter which of these scenarios describes your experience of the COVID-19 Pandemic, you have no choice but to respond to this situation.

In this one hour group coaching session with Coach Linda Parsons, QC we will:

  • discuss some essential processes and tools you can use to respond and constructively ‘react’ to the current environment;
  • share case histories that offer examples of adaptation and agility in the face of this enormous challenge; and
  • work through some examples of situations currently faced by the participants in our session and offer insights, suggestions and, most importantly, hope and inspiration.

To make our session most productive, please submit your questions about the challenges you are facing in your practice, as well as your stories of success, in advance of the webinar. In this session we will anonymize the responses from the participants to the greatest extent possible and will endeavour to give "real life" examples, without identification of individuals.

Please address these emails to Linda at linda@lindaparsonsconsulting.com with the subject line "questions".
