I recently mentored a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who disappointed an attorney-client. She was having a pity party related to the humiliation she suffered. While “buck-up” might not be what she wanted to hear, my response was “Pull yourself together and get back in the saddle. It’s not about you – it’s about focusing on the attorney. Let’s talk about what you can do to ensure you never make the same mistake on another legal nurse consultant job.”
We all make (and have made) mistakes. Successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultants learn from the valuable lessons presented and move on. They recognize that failing to let go of the humiliation is merely stroking one’s ego in a most nonproductive way.
What will you do the next time you make a mistake – stroke your ego or rise up better and stronger for the experience?
Success Is Yours!
P.S. Comment here and share how you get back in the saddle after disappointing an attorney-client.
