Episode 26: Sharon Chandra talks family law, the role of happiness in productivity, and the utopia we might face towards

In this episode I talked to Sharon Chandra about family law, how productive a happy lawyer can be, flexible working conditions, gender and age bias, the basis on which you might choose jobs early in your career, and her hope that more law firms will shift from a top down management approach to a conversational approach (a hope I enthusiastically second).  You can listen below, via Spotify, Apple Podcasts or Stitcher as per usual. 

I also mentioned that I am now a writer for LexisNexis' Learn Law Life platform (inaugural column over here).  If you have questions you would like answered in that column please do email the special address (learnlawlife@symphonylaw.co.nz) and I will see what I can do.

If you have an issue you would like to work one on one with me on, please email me at katie@symphonylaw.co.nz, or you can go here for further information on what's involved.  Ideally I work with clients in person but we can also work via Skype.  

Finally, since I know you were all dying to know, the book I mentioned about Scarcity is this one, by Sendhil Mullainathan and Eldar Shafir.  It is excellent and particularly relevant to busy lawyers desperate for more time.

Till next time!

Love, Katie
