Twelve Hours Work in an 8-Hour Day
Einstein may have discovered that time speeds up or down depending upon how fast one thing is moving in relation to something else, but in law firms, time seems fixed. Most attorneys are required to record their time in six minute increments all day, every day, in order to show value to clients and the management team.
This relentless tracking and recording of time can become a heavy burden, particularly when in addition to client work, attorneys must attend professional development workshops, network, market themselves and interact with staff and peers. Multi-tasking once seemed like a great solution for time-crunched executives, but recent studies suggest focusing on one thing at a time is healthier and more productive. So what’s a busy lawyer to do?
"Getting 12 Hours of Work Done in an 8 Hour Day " is a 3.0 hour CLE workshop, Wednesday, August 18, 9:00am to 12:15pm. Presenters include Jessika Ferm and Matthew Krejci, Esq., of J.Ferm LLC, a leadership development company. Using a trademarked “no frills, no fluff” approach, Ferm and Krejci will teach busy lawyers how to identify their time-management strengths and weaknesses as well as create systems that effectively manage time for maximum output with minimal distraction. The workshop content is based on findings from an extensive research initiative that identified management pains unique to lawyers and law firms.
