The Scarcity Mindset in the Paralegal Profession
In this solo episode of the Paralegals on Fire! Podcast Show, Ann Pearson discusses the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about: how the scarcity mindset is a problem in the paralegal profession.
What is the scarcity mindset? It’s when someone thinks that they can’t be successful if others are. And it shows itself when paralegals are not willing to share their knowledge and skills with others because they think there can only be one rockstar paralegal in the room. It’s one of the reasons why employers are reluctant to hire entry-level paralegals – because most of us know that this is happening and don’t know what to do to fix it.
Join Ann for this frank discussion and keep the conversation going by being the paralegal with an abundance mindset who wants to help EVERY paralegal succeed.
- How social media comments motivated this discussion
- It absolutely does not take 10, 20, or 30 years of experience to be a rockstar paralegal
- Advice for new paralegals who are not getting the mentoring or training they need
