RL 24: Jack Pringle – Why Healthy Lawyers Make Good Lawyers

Jack Pringle is a partner with Adams and Reese (www.adamsandreese.com/jack-pringle/). I had the opportunity to interview him for this podcast during the World Domination Summit. I randomly saw that Jack was at the conference through Twitter! It’s funny how life has a way of connecting you to people.

  • Why coaching is useful for improving and honing your skills
  • Asking and listening for feedback without reflectively getting angry
