Modern technology can feel addictive – because it is! Smartphones, apps, and social media platforms are precision engineered to grab our attention and keep us coming back. We’d like to think that as lawyers, we’re immune to screen addiction, but we’re not. Instead our phones put us on call 24/7! We waste time, attention, and energy on unimportant information and interactions, increasing our stress, and reducing our efficiency and ability to fulfil our professional duties. So how do we reclaim our focus from digital distraction? Join us for this fun, highly practical webinar and learn how to use your digital devices so they enhance, rather than erode, your productivity and well-being.

Harvard educated lawyer and mindfulness trainer Jon Krop will explore lawyer tech use and tech distraction, and offer surprisingly simple methods to ensure your devices help you reduce - not increase - practice-related anxiety and burnout. From neutralizing visual distraction triggers to using effective blockers, you’ll learn simple, powerful “attentional self-defence” strategies to boost your executive functioning skills so you can focus on what matters most at that moment. The session will draw on mindfulness, cognitive psychology, user experience design, and digital product philosophy. Register now!

Live webinar with chat includes 60 day replay. This program features real-time audio of the presenter with synchronized presentation slides, and a chat feature that allows for live Q & A.
