Making Meetings Matter More
Let’s be honest. Many meetings aren’t just monotonous and time-consuming, they are chaotic, boring, and they drain your energy. You dread yet another gathering with endless discussions, repetitions, and positioning while the elephant remains in the room and, in some cases, clear decisions and results are lacking. Considering the tremendous pressures and work-loads in the legal field, these tiring meetings can cause a rush of cortisol, adrenaline, and other stress hormones that you can certainly do without. In this presentation, you will learn how to increase relevance, energy, focus, and productivity in meetings. And, of course, this session will address all these aspects in the context of conducting your meetings virtually, which comes with unique challenges and solutions. Whether virtual or in-person, it is possible to hold meetings that people want to attend and that deliver results. But it does require you to shift your meeting-mindset and to apply practical meeting principals and tools. Join Carolien Moors, M.Psych. and M.Ed. for tips on how you can make your in-person and virtual meetings more successful. Topics include:

  • Five must-haves for a successful meeting
  • Responsibilities of meeting attendees and discussion leader
  • Ingredients for the ‘Meetings Matter Mindset’
  • Caring and confronting as elements of team effectiveness
  • Managing ineffective behavior with candor and confrontation

Sean Carter: It’s Not the Fruit, It’s the Root
In this unique legal ethics presentation, humorist Sean Carter will go beyond the simple "dos" and "don'ts" of rules and get to the root of the matter – the mindsets that cause lawyers to commit ethics violations in the first place. In doing so, he will cover the Seven Deadly Sins of legal ethics:

  1. Lust (conflicts of interest – Rules 1.7-1.9) 
  2. Gluttony (over-commitment – Rule 1.3)
  3. Greed (trust account violations – Rules 1.5 & 1.15)
  4. Sloth (lack of diligence – Rules 1.1 & 1.3)
  5. Wrath (incivility – Rules 3.4, 3.5, 4.4 & 8.4)
  6. Envy (incompetence – Rule 1.1)
  7. Pride (breaches of confidentiality, failure to communicate – Rules 1.4 & 1.6)

Sean Carter: Nice Lawyers Finish First
It's been said that nice guys finish last. And while that might be true in the rough and tumble arenas of politics, professional prize fighting and marriage, nothing could be further from the truth in the practice of law. Zealous representation does not require us to be zealots. In fact, the most effective representation requires just the opposite. Nice lawyers finish first ... and so do their clients! In this off-beat presentation, Mr. Carter uses humor to stress the importance of not only being "nice," but embodying all the traits of true professionalism:

  • Integrity – making our word our bond.
  • Civility – being zealous but not zealots.
  • Efficiency – expediting client matters.
  • Charity – giving of our time and talents for the benefit of others
  • Conciliation – always willing to entertain compromise
  • Accommodation – making reasonable allowances for others
  • Humility – putting the client's interests first

Sean Carter: Yelp, I’ve Fallen into Social Media and I Can’t Linkedout
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the other social media tools have become ubiquitous in our high-tech society. And while social media can undoubtedly help lawyers to enhance their networks of colleagues, clients, and prospective clients, it can also ensnare the unwary in a web of ethical violations, such as:

  • Breaches of confidentiality
  • Incompetence
  • Unauthorized practice of law
  • False or misleading advertising
  • Unethical solicitations
  • Failure to communicate with clients
  • Unlawful discovery practices
  • Breaches of gag orders

Sean Carter: Overcoming Our Implicit Biases – When the Exception Becomes the Rule
The human brain is wired to recognize patterns and make generalizations, even those based on faulty or incomplete information. And contrary to popular opinion, lawyers are human as well and therefore, we are just as susceptible to forming biases and acting upon them. And it does not require that we harbor ill will or animus towards other people. In fact, most often, our biases are not even our own, but rather those that have been taught to us. So how do we unlearn our biases? In much the same way that we unlearned "i before e except after c" — by noting the exceptions. Because when you weigh it all out, you uncover that it’s really more of an art than a science. In fact, as it turns out, there are more than 900 words that break this "rule" and only 44 words that actually follow it. As a result, most of us have learned to ignore this unhelpful rule we were once taught. In this same way, by learning to seek out the exceptions to our gender, racial, and other biases, we can begin to unlearn them as well and start treating our clients, colleagues and subordinates as wonderfully unique human beings.

Foundations of Evidence: Privilege
This presentation is a replay of a webcast originally presented November 8, 2019

The courts will and do control the applicability of privileges. This presentation addresses Minnesota’s privilege statute, the Minnesota courts’ interpretation of it, and federal treatment of the various privileges.

The Law of the Smart Phone: A Look at Smart Phone Addiction and Attorney Mental Health

Are We Addicted to Our Smart Phones? – As humans we are wired to respond to the social aspect of a smart phone. When we get a text, email, notification, message or the like, our brains release a pleasure chemical called dopamine. That bit of dopamine keeps us coming back for more.  Learn what you need to know about the neuroscience behind our heavy societal smart phone use- in order to help yourself, our clients, your colleagues and others use this technology in the most informed way possible.

Unplug Before Your Burn Out: Smart Use of Smart Phones for Attorney Mental Health – Smart phones make lawyers more connected and mobile- able and ready to respond to client needs effectively and efficiently. The technology is a boost – it also has its downsides; several recent studies have examined the impact of technology and social media use through smart phones on mental health, revealing an alarming picture (especially in the context of the legal profession, where lawyer are already burdened with extraordinary anxiety and mental health challenges). This session will examine the impact of smart phones in the legal profession and outline key tips and behaviors that lawyers can undertake to use their phones in practice in ways that are aligned with personal and professional well-being.
