When it comes to your work and career, are you an optimist or a pessimist? As lawyers are we trained to see risk everywhere, but is this always a healthy mindset? The approach you bring to your work, such as optimism or pessimism, can have concrete impacts including on your wellbeing.

Nat and Jenn discuss tips for identifying your outlook and the benefits of catching and flipping negative thoughts. They explore tools for cultivating a more positive mindset such as reframing your weaknesses as strengths, uploading positivity and finding a ‘third space’.

Nat interviews the Honourable Shane Marshall, former Justice of the Federal Court of Australia, about how ‘seeing yourself through yourself’ can enhance your confidence.
