Information

Why Attend?

  • Master technology skills that will help you become more efficient with your time
  • Build healthy boundaries with technology and understand how to better unplug/disconnect when working from home
  • Learn distraction management techniques and a practical time management methodology that will enable you to regain control of your day

Featuring nationally recognized speaker, legal technology author, and thought leader Paul Unger

Most law practices require the use of technology. Yet, professionals today are constantly distracted by technology, connectivity, and information overload, which can lead to spending less time with clients. These physical and digital distractions cause very smart people to underperform and contribute to anxiety, sleep disorders, and depression. Furthermore, the impact of the pandemic has many experts concerned about the mental health of attorneys.

In this interactive webcast seminar, designed to provide you with technology skills that will help you become more efficient with your time so you can focus on the practice of law and your clients, you will learn how to build healthy boundaries with technology, how to better unplug/disconnect when working from home and take back control of technology instead of it owning you. You will be taught distraction management techniques and a practical time management methodology that enables you regain control of your day. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves, get your hands dirty, and focus on how to use Microsoft Outlook and other tools that law firms use.

This program is the first in a 3-part Law Practice Management lunchtime series presented by Paul Unger. The series is designed to provide the legal professional with technology time management tools to help them get and stay organized, not miss deadlines, and be able to spend more time clients. Each session in the series is designed to stand alone, so you can choose to take any or all three of the 1-hour sessions:

Part 1: Time and Distraction Management + Digital Detox—Get Focused! (Wednesday, May 11) (Click here to register)
Part 2: Email Management: Help! My Inbox Is Exploding (Wednesday, June 8) (Click here to register)
