As a psychologist who has been on the LCL staff since 1998, it’s been interesting to note how the needs of our Massachusetts-lawyer clientele evolve and change with the times. For six years, I ran a group for lawyers in solo practice that was relatively unstructured and focused on making personal connections and having a place to discuss aspects of solo practice that are shared and yet often experienced in isolation. The group thrived and then gradually seemed to outlive its usefulness. The advent of LOMAP as our partner program, in the person of Practice Management Advisor Scott Malouf, Esq. as my new co-leader, made it possible to offer a new Solo group tailored to today’s needs and interests.
The new group will focus, in its first incarnation, on ways to “Get It Done!” – offering strategies to get more organized, implement goals, overcoming self-defeating beliefs/habits, combat procrastination and time wasters, and leverage technology to increase efficiency, in a series of 6 meetings on alternating Fridays (12:30 to 1:45 pm), beginning on September 14. Each meeting will feature a presentation followed by time for discussion and getting to know fellow attendees. Openings are limited, so we ask participants to commit to attending all six meetings, for which their reward will be a free copy of David Allen’s Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity.
