In the legal profession, the concept of burnout is well established. As a managing partner for a top 20 law firm, I found Pete’s book to be insightful and it hit close to home. Pete’s insight, analysis, and reflections help me see the trends in our firm and with myself. While I was in the middle of reading the book, one of our senior attorneys gave their notice after spending years as the director of one of our more profitable programs. In discussing the departure, the word “burnout” was cited multiple times. While it is too late to salvage that relationship, this book gave me the tools to recognize warning signs and the knowledge to take steps to hopefully avoid losing other members while being able to attract and retain future talent.
