The Practice of Cognitive Kindness for Improved Performance in the New Year
with Chelsy Castro, JD, MA, MSW, LCSW
Empathy and understanding of others are critical to any engagement between opposing parties — particularly in the practice of law. Our ability to think critically (not just about our own perceptions, intentions and motivations, but about those of others) is a powerful tool and an immensely valuable resource. And critical thinking increases productivity, reduces conflict and improves overall wellbeing when used strategically through the practice of Cognitive Kindness.
