Mindfulness for Lawyers CLE

It’s the latest buzzword in business. It’s being taught at Harvard and at Wharton. It’s being talked about at prestigious leadership conferences like Davos. It’s being practiced at places like Google, Apple, and Aetna Healthcare.

Everyone’s excited about it because the science shows that it reduces stress, enhances wellness, increases productivity, and significantly improves the bottom line.

At this seminar, Walt Hampton taught attendees how mindfulness can help them improve their focus, productivity, and effectiveness with clients; the science behind mindfulness; and how to start a mindfulness practice.
