Your Actionable Strategy

In all of our podcast episodes, we try to give paralegals an actionable strategy that they can take away from the show because we know your time is valuable.

Actionable Strategy #1: Start using one or more of the problem-solving techniques and see which one works best for solving your problem. It might be a different technique for different problems. Then take it to the next level and get to the root cause of the problem so that you can figure out a way to prevent the problem from happening again.

Actionable Strategy #2: Ann discussed two apps to use to help you and your brain with critical thinking for enhanced problem-solving, memory, and focus.
