No matter what we do, things can and will happen that take our attention away from our professional lives. Sometimes these are good things - like a vacation or the arrival of a child - and sometimes bad - like an illness or even a natural disaster.  Like everyone, lawyers are not immune to these types of events, expected or unexpected. These challenges, if not properly handled, will undermine your efforts at running a successful business by jeopardizing client service and consuming endless hours to manage. Planning for and managing these disruptions is essential to any lawyer's practice management toolkit and can make the process so much easier. With stories from the trenches and real life lessons learned (sometimes the hard way), this program will provide you with the resources to make it as easy as possible for you to effectively manage both expected and unexpected events in your life.
