Topic: “My lawyer is a jerk!” and other preventable client complaints in fee-dispute mediation by TEB Member Leigh Chandler.

Leigh Chandler has mediated more than 50 lawyer-client fee disputes over the past 6 years, and she has heard it all. In this presentation, Leigh will share:

– The most common preventable complaints she hears from unhappy clients in fee dispute mediations.
– Ideas for quickly resolving these issues if they arise, so that your clients never get to the point of disputing your bill.
– Guidance on how to approach your fee dispute mediation if you end up there, because being a party in a dispute is a very different from being an advocate.

Topic: This month we have Dennis Volpe, a leadership and performance coach, teaching us about resilience! Please join us for an inspiring presentation that will teach you how to be more engaged and fulfilled as you navigate the inevitable changes that come your way in business and life.

Presentation Description::

We can all be more engaged, more fulfilled, and have more impact. Leaders and teams at all levels can be more aligned and engaged with their values, priorities, and expectations to maximize both their personal and professional performance. Change is a FACT of life. How we deal with that change is a CHOICE. Resilience is the ability to lean into or adjust easily to adversity, misfortune, or change and move in a positive direction to come out better on the other side. Our personal resiliency factor incorporates a realistic sense of one’s reality, a commitment to meaningful goals, a constant connection to one’s personal ethos, and the engagement of supportive and positive people in order to be responsive, rather than reactive, to the adversity, misfortune or change life throws at us. Our webinar will explore the connection between emotional intelligence and personal resilience as well as provide some everyday tools to consider to achieve increased levels of clarity, focus, and success in your personal and professional life.
