60% of trainees do not feel satisfied with the level of supervision/mentorship they receive from their leaders

THE SUPERVISOR AND THE TRAINEE

As firms struggle to balance the demands of senior leaders with the expectations of junior lawyers coming through the ranks, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the supervisor-trainee dynamic can no longer be left to chance. 

 

  • Supervisors have reported feeling excessively stressed and burnt out from balancing their own workload whilst managing a trainee and team during this challenging time

  • They have felt unequipped to handle the increase in requests from trainees for mental health support, including understanding how to have open conversations about mental health and how to signpost for further support

  • 68% of trainees say they wouldn’t feel comfortable discussing their mental health within their firm

CREATING A WIN-WIN DYNAMIC

The aims and outcomes of our Supervisor training programme include: 

 

Sustainable productivity & engagement  | Greater mental health risk management | Improved talent retention 

 

  • A mutually productive relationship defined by optimal engagement and effective management of shared goals 

  • Clearly defined and communicated boundaries, expectations and feedback processes to reduce the risk of burden, stress and burnout

  • More effective mental health support and risk management due to increased understanding of early warning signs of mental illness and a greater capacity to engage in sensitive conversations
