Session overview
Join Pierre for a candid talk on dealing with stress in legal practice, drawing on his carer learnings to tackle pressure, unrealistic expectations and perfectionism and how to rise above it.
"Expectations that others place on you is very easy to put on yourself, to take your perfectionism and their expectations and demand of yourself something that is unreasonable, something that is unrealistic."
