Michelle Landy: PERSUIT — Keep Expanding Your Discomfort Zone

We’ve enjoyed so many sharp conversations with legal experts and industry game-changers on the journey to our hundredth episode of Innovative Legal Leadership. So who better to celebrate this milestone with than Michelle Landy, General Counsel and Chief Operations Officer of PERSUIT.

With over 25 years of experience in private law firms and in-house practice, Michelle’s set foot on quite a few branches of the career tree. She calls it such because she argues no one shares the same ladder — everyone’s journey is different.

Michelle shares her exclusive veteran insight and explains why we should expand our discomfort zones and simply open up to the adventure that awaits.

Join us as we discuss:

- Natural curiosity and expanding your discomfort zone (6:53)

- Finding the balance between career fulfillment and security (12:37)

- Volunteerism and helping with international development (21:27)

- Defying perfectionism and relying on gut instinct (26:13)
