Embracing Failure

“Lawyers are perfectionists - nobody is going to appear on video to talk publicly about mistakes they actually made.”

Said who? Said everybody. But, they said wrong.

At Crafty Counsel, we know that everybody makes mistakes. Even lawyers. We want to build a culture that welcomes lawyers sharing their mistakes and allows us all to learn from them.

We need it to improve. We need it for our mental health. We need it because it’s right thing to do. That’s why we created this series with four fabulous professionals, sharing their perspectives on culture, learning - and, why it’s ok to get it wrong sometimes.

Our presenters include:

  • Tony Williams - Principal at Jomati consultants, and former Managing Partner of Clifford Chance
  • Melanie Pritchard - Success Coach and Corporate Wellbeing Trainer
  • Alice Stephenson - Founder and CEO, Stephenson Law
  • Lisa Goldkuhul - Supervising Attorney at a Government Agency in California
