  • Unpacking Narcissism & Gaslighting in Law: The Root of Toxic Cultures?

    52:10
    Narcissistic behaviour and gaslighting are rife in the legal industry. They can cause toxic cultures and well-being issues within firms. Disclaimer: This is a longer episode than I would normally publish. However, I strongly believe that so many of you listening will not only resonate with what we talk about but will also find it highly valuableThere are so many dynamics which occur in law firms, which unfortunately can encourage one of the greatest hallmarks that we put as being narcissistic behaviour.Today I'm talking with Alana Tart. She is a fractional general counsel for SMEs and an executive coach and mindfulness teacher. Alana has told me that she understands gaslighting and narcissistic patterns intimately. She grew up around these behaviours. And in most of her workplaces, they have been accepted, if not rewarded.In this conversation, we get into the nitty gritty of narcissistic behaviour in the legal industry, the psychology behind it, and how lawyers can recognize it and become almost immune to it, whilst keeping their career intact.Alana understands gaslighting and narcissistic patterns intimately. In addition to lived expertise, she has psychology degrees, is a certified UK counsellor and a trained mindfulness and compassion teacher -- proven ways of both helping people become more immune to gaslighting and narcissism from others and also understanding how they can reduce these tendencies in themselves.Alana Tart is dedicated to helping professionals reclaim their sense of self and power, especially when life feels like it's slipping or imploding. Whether you're facing job insecurities or personal challenges, she helps you rebuild a solid foundation. If you're dealing with toxicity, she guides you through navigating, protecting yourself, and inoculating against future issues. For those seeking meaning, she reconnects you to your essence and helps you rediscover your path.What sets Alana apart from most executive coaches is her willingness to embrace the darkness inherent in every story and experience. This means everything is welcome as a tool in the work you do together.
