The Mostly Legal Podcast: Season 3, Episode 10 "Parenting While Practicing: Achieving the Elusive Work/Life Harmony"

Barrett Guttell

What if we shifted the way we thought of work-life balance to work-life integration or enrichment? We welcomed Lori Mihalich-Levin, an author, mother, podcast host, and founding principal, to the podcast to discuss the role of motherhood and its integration into the practice of law. She really can do it all! The power of setting boundaries for yourself is a vital component of your success and personal growth. Lori walks us through the power of advocating yourself, with a focus on parental leave. She also explains her program, Mindful Return, and the resources and help it provides to employers around the globe to retain working parent top talent. Lori hates the term work/life balance but you’ll have to listen to find out exactly why!
