In this episode, I am excited to have Gina Alexandris on to talk about life in and beyond law practice and managing transitions.

For over 20 years, Gina has been inspiring and supporting individuals and organizations to strategically define their hopes and achieve their goals. She is an adult educator, coach, public speaker, life-long learner, law school administrator, and former practicing lawyer. Gina is passionate about personal and professional development, diversity and inclusion, and developing strong relationships and networks. She is a proud Greek-Canadian soccer mom living with her family in Toronto.

Topics Covered

  • What the legal education life looks like (even beyond the law practice), how she discovered that litigation wasn't right for her, and what about it wasn't suited to whom she is.
  • Dealing with an identity crisis in law, managing transitions at any point in your career, and what that journey looked like for her.
  • What to do with that nagging feeling we can feel when we are pulled in different directions.
  • Emotional intelligence for lawyers, and how we sometimes need to back away from our logic-thinking brain to listen to our inner voice.
