On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Your Online Legal Group principal Geoff Ebert, who talks about his background and career in Australian football, why coaching was of interest to him, what his coaching regimen looks like for teams, as well as his mentality in leading players, and what he gets out of such a vocational pursuit.

Mr Ebert also outlines his journey as a legal professional and now firm owner, how he juggles his coaching commitments with his development as a lawyer and business manager, transferrable skills and traits between those two pathways, tackling various mental health challenges that arise with those in his charge, lessons he’s learnt, and what other lawyers can take away from the experience of professional Australian football.
