Living your best life as a lawyer

As a solicitor who is trusted to manage her daily routine as she sees fit  so long as the work gets done — award winner Phoebe MacDougall can’t think of a single reason why lawyers would not be able to perform better if they, too, were trusted to live and practice as they please, rather than in more traditional, cookie-cutter schedules.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes back MacDougall & Hydes solicitor Phoebe MacDougall to discuss her firm’s unique approach to flexibility, what her day-to-day looks like, how she makes time rather than finds time for the things that matter to her while also succeeding as a practitioner, and the myriad benefits she (and her practice) gleans from such an approach.

Ms MacDougall also delves into how best lawyers and their employers can have substantive conversations about setting up such trusting relationships and schedules, how both parties can and will benefit, the ever-important need for meaningful communication, how to pitch such an arrangement to one’s boss, and why all lawyers can and will be able to perform better if they can be truer to themselves.
