Attorney Well-being: Emotional Intelligence


Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. There are five pillars to a strong EQ — self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills — that when combined can lead to a healthier professional and personal life.

In this video, Mental Health Clinician with the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program Lindsey O'Connell will discuss ways to how to build your personal EQ.

I had no idea that TLAP is independent and you can talk through mental and emotional well being issues with TLAP. This presentation was timely- especially during Covid.

This is a really good presentation with great relevance.

The information and tips provided in this session were so helpful that I plan to review this again for reinforcement. Great program.

Very relevant!

Very helpful and useful info Kept my attention

Wonderful program.

This course hit on my biggest weaknesses as a lawyer. And even though I had been introduced to the concepts before, I find I still need work. I wish they had offered a class in law school.

Great speaker!

This should be mandatory for all lawyers. Truly well done- useful, practical tips and extremely knowledgeable, well-spoken presenter. She is really terrific. TLAP is lucky to have her!
