After 30 years of working with lawyers, I know one thing for certain. Lawyers are almost always risk-averse. We are trained to be this way – to spot issues, minimize risks, and identify worst-case scenarios. We fear not knowing an answer, being wrong, or giving bad advice. Yes, we are definitely learning to look for the positive, for opportunities to help others enhance their businesses and personal lives. Yet risk-aversion remains high, and few examples are more apparent to me than lawyers who are reluctant to greet and introduce themselves to strangers. “It’s outside my comfort zone…I’m not good at small talk…I don’t want to be seen as selling…” The list is long.
