Managing your contracts better
43 perc 14. rész Mark Dodd, David Curtain, Denis Potemkin

We’re starting 2021 with a bang – bringing you an episode on your most requested topic – contract improvement.

This episode will help in-house counsel to improve how they manage their contracting. It combines the theoretical and the pragmatics on how to optimise your contracting. And to help us understand the topic better, I spoke with two experts:

  1. Denis Potemkin. One of the most interesting thinkers in the contract redesign space, Denis trained and practised as a solicitor and senior in-house counsel for many years across Europe and the UK, before becoming a consultant and launching his own start-up.
  2. David Curtain. David was formerly Head of Legal at Engie and now works out of the LOD Melbourne office as a Director of our Legal Operations & Tech business.

Stress and mental health in the legal profession
22 perc 12. rész LOD

Today’s episode focuses on stress and mental health in the legal profession. 

It’s an episode that explains to you the relationship between stress and mental health, the trends we’re seeing in the corporate world, the problem of presenteeism, evidence-based strategies to improve your own mental health and where we hit the target but miss the point. 

To help us navigate and understand this vital topic, I was delighted to be joined by Professor Stuart Carney. Professor Carney is the Deputy Executive Dean and Medical Dean in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Queensland. He is also a Liaison Psychiatrist by training.

How to be a trusted advisor
36 perc 11. rész Mark Dodd, Charles H. Green

Trust is a concept we all intuitively understand. We all understand what it means to trust someone and what it means to be trusted.

But something easily understood, doesn’t make it something easy to do.

In this episode of LODcast we speak with Charles Green, a world leading expert in trust and, in particular, the idea of being a trusted advisor.

24 perc 10. rész Mark Dodd, Terri Mottershead

Smart collaboration - a conversation with Heidi Gardner
44 perc 9. rész Heidi Gardner

In this episode, we’re delighted to speak with Heidi Gardner about smart collaboration – a term she coined to talk about how we need highly-specialised experts to come together tackle more complicated issues than any of them could do on their own. 

We take a deeper dive into her world-leading research on how this impacts for legal professionals, and more recently, her research and analysis on what this means for in-house legal teams. 

It’s a fascinating and insightful conversation and I particularly like how Heidi has taken a potentially misperceived soft-skill of collaboration and brought indisputable evidence as to how it brings tangible, bottom-line impacts.
