Change management in the legal industry is increasingly important as the industry recognizes the need for innovation and embraces technology. This podcast transcript provides insights into the role of change management in the legal industry and how it can drive positive transformation.Maya Markovich was part of an advanced team that conducted change readiness assessments and developed implementation plans for big tech platforms. This work went beyond simply installing technology and providing user guides. It involved creating the muscle memory and buy-in necessary for long-term change adoption. At the time, Maya had no idea this expertise would be relevant to the legal industry."So the legal industry, you know, hasn't changed much for hundreds of years," explains Maya Markovich on the You Are A Lawyer podcast.However, Maya Markovich eventually realized they wanted a broader social impact and went to law school. While working in law, they were always drawn to working with technology and the benefits it could bring to both clients and attorneys. They saw the potential to reduce the drudgery of early years of practice and improve efficiency. Eventually, they transitioned to the legal tech side and stopped practicing law.In this episode, we discuss: Innovation in the legal industry. Legal tech gaining attention. Legal industry's changing landscape. Closing the access to justice gap. Pro se litigants. Legal tech and innovation space. Law and tech intersect for social impact in various ways. The podcast transcript highlights the importance of leveraging technology to address access to justice issues and make legal services more affordable and accessible to all.The legal industry has traditionally been slow to embrace technology innovation. The industry has relied on traditional methods and practices for centuries with little change or advancement. However, there has been a significant shift towards embracing technology and innovation within the legal sector in recent years."Lawyers are just, you know, they're reluctant to change and the legal industry itself is reluctant to change for a lot of different reasons, but change is coming," shares Maya Markovich on the You Are A Lawyer podcast.ADVERTISER:This episode is produced by KD Creative.

One example of this shift is the emergence of NextLaw Labs, a tech-focused industry innovation catalyst founded by Dentons, the world's largest law firm. NextLaw Labs aims to drive transformation within the legal industry by investing in and evaluating legal tech startups and working with Dentons' clients on their internal innovation initiatives. This initiative recognizes the need for change and aims to position Dentons at the forefront of the evolving legal landscape."[A]lso bringing in diverse stakeholders to the table and understanding what perspectives they can bring is always going to outperform the kind of services that a homogenous status quo focused group is going to be able to deliver to clients," shared Maya Markovich while speaking to Kyla Denanyoh on the You Are A Lawyer podcast.The legal industry has been historically resistant to change for several reasons. Firstly, there is a lack of client-centricity, with the industry often failing to prioritize the needs and expectations of clients. Additionally, the legal sector has been slow to adopt technology, lagging behind other industries in utilizing technology to improve efficiency and deliver better client services."No one goes to law school to sit in a windowless room and do doc review," explained Maya Markovich on the You Are A Lawyer podcast. However, the landscape is changing rapidly. In just a few years, the number of legal tech companies has grown exponentially, from 75 in 2015 to close to 2000 today. These companies offer various solutions, from court filing and e-discovery tools to regulatory monitoring and client request intake platforms. This explosion of legal tech products demonstrates the increasing interest and demand for innovative solutions within the legal industry.Moreover, institutional investors are starting to take notice of the potential in the legal tech market. Previously, legal tech was often overlooked or misunderstood by investors. However, as the industry continues to evolve and the demand for technology solutions grows, investors recognize the opportunity for growth and profitability in this sector.The legal industry is known for resisting change, and many lawyers and law firms remain reluctant to adopt new technologies. This reluctance can be attributed to various factors, including a fear of job displacement, concerns about data security and privacy, and a lack of understanding or awareness of available technology solutions.Join the FREE mailing list!Get behind-the-scenes content from You Are A Lawyer. 1) Visit www.youarealawyer.com2) Add your email address to the Subscribe pop-up box OR3) Enter your email address on the right side of the screen4) Get emails from me (I won't fill your inbox with junk)!

Today, we're diving into the topic of anxiety and how to effectively manage it. Anxiety affects a significant portion of us, but understanding and addressing it is essential for a fulfilling life. I'll share insights from my own experiences, clients, and experts, so you can conquer anxiety and regain control of your life. 11 anxiety hacks you can immediately implement to help you gain control of your life again. Understanding Anxiety: Anxiety is a common experience; nearly 80-90% of us encounter it in various forms. It can manifest physically and mentally, impacting careers, relationships, and overall well-being. Recognizing anxiety is the first step toward overcoming it. My Personal Journey: I personally dealt with anxiety for years without realizing it. Awareness came when a therapist casually mentioned my anxiety during a marriage therapy session. It's not uncommon for people to be unaware of their anxiety, as I was for the first three decades of my life. Anxiety's Impact on Health: Anxiety triggers the release of cortisol, a stress hormone that can hinder progress in various aspects of life. From career advancement to relationships and even weight management, anxiety can put everything on hold. Physical Manifestations: As a dermatology Physician Assistant, I see anxiety manifest in skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, or eczema. Stress hormones exacerbate these issues and can be a significant factor in their development. Healthcare professionals and individuals working in high-stress environments often experience anxiety, impacting their well-being and decision-making. Types of Anxiety Responses: Anxiety can manifest in different ways. For some, it leads to hyper-focus on areas they can control like micromanaging their food or exercise. Others may resort to coping mechanisms like overeating, excessive spending, or numbing out with Netflix or alcohol. The Life-Altering Power of Anxiety: Anxiety can drastically alter the course of our lives. Imagine it as a path diverging in two directions. Managing anxiety gives you the choice to follow a different path. Understanding Emotions: No emotion is inherently bad; they all serve as clues about what's happening in our minds. Anxiety is a natural response, but unchecked, it can dictate the story of our lives, limiting our agency. Rewiring Your Brain: Anxiety rewires our brains, creating neural pathways that perpetuate anxious thoughts. The key is catching yourself in these thought patterns and rewriting the script to form new neural pathways. Common Anxious Thoughts: Anxious thoughts often include feelings of inadequacy, fear of failure, or playing the victim. Identifying and challenging these thoughts is essential to regain control. Anxiety and Safety: Anxiety stems from a primal instinct for survival. In ancient times, it kept us alert to potential dangers. Today, it's a response to feeling unsafe in our environment. Using Anxiety as a Clue: View anxiety as a clue, not an enemy. Ask yourself what your anxiety is trying to communicate and how it's trying to help. I'll review 11 tricks you can use to tame your anxiety and keep it from steamrolling your life. If someone you know is dealing with anxiety, share this episode to offer them guidance and support.

Meet Dr. Kelly Renner, the Program Chair of Psychology and Social Sciences at Franklin University where today she oversees 300+ students, faculty, and curriculum for over 30 sections and is an award winning professor.Although today Dr. Renner is operating in her zone of genius there were many times along her journey where she felt lost.

Although Sunni Chauhan had embraced the idea of becoming a doctor, as she knew she loved both problem solving and helping people, she thought if she was going to in medicine the rest of her life she'd take pre-med classes alongside something else that interested her. She became an economics major. At graduation, she decided to take a two-year break before jumping into med school and figured she'd be a management consultant. But if it really was going to be only two years, she realized she'd see a lot more from a deal perspective in banking where the cycles are shorter. Somehow, the two years turned into 16 and the MD her parents thought would be medical doctor turned to managing director.Her love of mergers and acquisitions allowed her to see a lot and learn a lot over those many years. When given a chance to reinvent herself, she took those skills, found ways to acquire new ones, and landed in new spots a few times over.//In this episode, find out from Sunni how keeping open to new things can lead to unexpected joys …on today's Roads Taken with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestSunni Chauhan is a strategic business leader with more than 25 years of experience advising leaders on value creation through talent, strategy, M&A and corporate finance, sustainability and stakeholder engagement.

Stephanie Clark, a Southern University Law Center graduate, shares her experience transitioning from law school to practicing law in Florida. She talks about her decision to move to Florida for better job opportunities and the importance of free childcare provided by her parents. Stephanie reflects on her journey of taking the bar exam multiple times and working as a paralegal at a criminal defense firm. Tune in to hear Stephanie's story and insights about the legal profession.KEY TOPICS: Moving to Louisiana for better opportunities. National law practice for veterans. Balancing law school and motherhood. Alternative career paths for lawyers. Autonomy and freedom in law firms. The challenges of working from home. The podcast episode also explores the diverse career opportunities that a law degree offers. The host mentions that law students and new lawyers can pursue various paths, including working in HR, becoming a law librarian, and engaging in research. They emphasize that a law degree can change one's viewpoint and perspective, which proves advantageous in different career paths. "If you went to law school to become a lawyer and say, I'm going to make all this money, I am sorry about your luck," explains Stephanie Clark on You Are A Lawyer.After leaving the firm, Stephanie joined another criminal defense firm focused solely on criminal defense cases. This change allowed her to specialize in this area of law, unlike her previous firm, where she handled various types of cases. Stephanie also mentions that during her time at the second firm, she sat for the Alabama bar exam and successfully passed it. She praises the UBE (Uniform Bar Examination) for its real-world scenarios and practical application."I'm not going to let this thing beat me," shares Stephanie Clark in Episode 106 of You Are A Lawyer.As a veterans' affairs attorney, Stephanie explains that she advocates for veterans and ensures they receive their entitled benefits. She emphasizes that her firm's approach is to go to hearings and present their cases directly to the judges. This personal touch allows the judges to see the attorneys and their passion for their clients' cases. Stephanie believes this approach leads to better outcomes for veterans instead of simply submitting paperwork, which is often denied.Looking for a podcast editor?

Everything ends. Jobs. Relationships. Chapters of your life.Even versions of YOU end. And new ones come online.Sometimes change can feel amazing. (Let's burn away the old and make space for the new!)And sometimes change is upsetting and destabilizing. You might wonder if it means you're doing life wrong.Society like to mess with our heads by holding up permanence as the ideal. It's why 10-year job anniversaries and golden marriage anniversaries get celebrated. (Even if those jobs/marriages have been a total horror show for the people involved.) It's easy to forget a fundamental truth: Nothing in life is supposed to be permanent.Just knowing this can be a huge game changer.It can free you to release relationships, jobs, places, chapters, and versions of yourself that are now complete so you can make room for what's next.On this week's podcast episode, we dig into the "Myth of Permanence," how it messes with our heads, and how to counteract it and find freedom.

#461: A special LIVE recording in front of an audience at Podcast Movement, an industry conference in Denver. Former financial planner Joe Saul-Sehy and I tackle two questions in today's episode. Our first question comes from a soon-to-be-single-mother on the precipice of divorce. How should she navigate this financially? Our second question comes from the spouse of a Purple Heart veteran of the war in Afghanistan. She and her husband would like to take a one-year sabbatical from work when they turn 40, which is in five years. They'd also like to pivot into lower-paying but more enjoyable careers. How should they map out their money for this transition? Joe and I dedicate this episode, recorded live on stage, to answering these two questions. Enjoy! P.S. Got a question?

Changes and transitions are inevitable; we can't stop the world from turning and time marching on. Our lived experience is filled with phases and stages of life, and through those phases and stages, we are given the opportunity to grow through the changes and transitions that change us. In today's episode, I share several examples of the changes and transitions that I've gone through throughout my life. We often don't think of going from dating to married life or becoming a parent as having loss experiences woven in. However, because we are in a relationship with others through these changes, and many others that I mention, it's impossible not to experience some loss and grief as we navigate the tears that often come with those changes and transitions. One of the definitions of grief that the Grief Recovery Institute shares is that grief is a change to, or end of, a familiar pattern of behavior. If we think about how our lives hum along day after day, and we do relatively the same things day after day with the same people, when that suddenly changes or ends -- surely you will have some feelings around those changes, right? Explore some of the common changes and transitions I address that you may have also experienced or reflect on some more that aren't mentioned today. Toward the end of the episode, I offer up an invitation of things to keep in mind as you navigate the tears of whatever change or transition you're experiencing. And know, too, that you are not alone in your experience! We are all grieving something (or someone)!

As a young person, Louis Chang would make lists. Lists of long term, mid-term, and short-term goals as well as the daily tasks that he needed to do to achieve them. When he didn't finish his daily list, he would push it to another day. One major goal was medical school right after college. But after a less than stellar grade in his intro chem class, he felt his chances at med school were over. A momentary detour afforded him the opportunity to take a range of other classes from government to German, but he actually stuck with chemistry as a major, facing the challenge head on. The breadth of experiences he had during college and his true interest for organic chemistry, however, made him question his original idea of medical school so he didn't even take the MCATs before graduating. Instead, he worked in a chem lab at the NIH, almost pursued a PhD, and ultimately realized bench science was a little too isolating.Unsure what was next, he tried his hand at a law firm in DC but pretty soon he knew that wasn't the right fit either and finally applied to med school. The mix of tenacity and a willingness to try something new came in handy again when he actually did follow the to-do list toward his anticipated speciality, only to find out life had other plans. In this episode, find out from Louis how checking out the detours can help you leave no regrets …on today's Roads Taken with Leslie Jennings Rowley. About This Episode's GuestLouis Chang a neurosurgical spine specialist with expertise in minimally invasive surgery for spinal disorders.

After 9 months of patience, preparation, and anticipation, what we want is a smooth, well-planned birth with a happy beginning. Unfortunately, it's common to experience the opposite. Maybe your labor wasn't what you expected. There might have been problems along the way. Maybe you had problems or mistakes were made. Maybe your doctor or nurses didn't listen to you or honor your wishes. Or you and your baby might have experienced trauma or needed a C-section. (That's why doula work is so important. And why a lot of moms become doulas!)There's nothing worse than feeling like you're invisible when you are at the mercy of others. These situations are all-too-familiar for Sarah Bilger, an engineer and doula who specializes in VBAC preparation. Her passion for doula work and successful VBACs took root after her first child was born. Her baby came by C-section so she was told that this was the only option for her in the future. That didn't feel right. She listened to her gut and dove down the rabbit hole of researching.Casual reading wasn't enough for Sarah, so she took doula certification courses. She shared what she was learning on her podcast, "Entering Motherhood." She had no idea that these decisions would change her life. Now she is helping other women prepare and experience the birth stories they are hoping for.Listen to the show to hear more and feel inspired and validated by Sarah.

Pulling off a career change requires preparation as you highlight how the skills you built transfer to a new field. Today's question for the WorkInSports Podcast comes from Alex, an aspiring career changer looking to pivot into the sports industry:“I've listened to a lot of episodes where people don't know what they want to do in the sports industry, but I haven't been able to find one where it's someone with a lot of experience but none in sports who wants to change. I've owned a company and worked sales/key account management jobs. In December, I was laid off after working 100-hour weeks at a company and figured it was time for a change. I want to switch to either pro sports (maybe start in the minors) or go into college athletics and go online to get my master's. How can I do that?”Career Changes in SportsSuccessfully switching careers to the sports industry is an involved process, but it can be done by following these seven steps:1. Do an HONEST Self-Assessment: Figure out what you like and dislike about your current job, do a SWOT analysis of yourself, and lean into the strengths and skills you bring to the table.2. Explore the Possibilities: After you analyze yourself, take note of the career possibilities that emerge, then do your research (request informational interviews, attend conferences, read relevant articles, etc.).3. Get Specific: Seek out the job titles that appeal to you and narrow your search to obtaining one of those positions.4. Promote Transferable Skills: Show how the skills that made you valuable at your last job translate into a sports position.5. Be Realistic: It is likely that you will start in an entry-level role to establish yourself all over again.6. Paint a Picture for Employers: Storytelling is powerful, so think back to some of your top career moments and how you achieved your goals to give potential employers a chance to visualize you excelling in their organization.7. Be Extra: Showcase your skills in the interview phase by adding something more, such as a sample report or a KPI analysis.Enjoy the full episode of the WorkInSports Podcast for concrete ways to navigate a career change in sports.
