On-Course With Ogletree Deakins

Our conversation today will be part of a new series that we are proud to be putting together with one of our valued partners, Ogletree Deakins. During these unprecedented times, we have all faced challenges and barriers that we have had to overcome. Much like in golf, there are obstacles that have been placed in our way. And there are a lot of parallel lessons that can be learned from how we get ourselves out of those “hazards.” As the great Bobby Jones said, “Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots – but you have to play the ball where it lies.” As much as we try to prepare for certain scenarios, things can happen. And no matter what you prepare for, one certainty you can always expect is the unexpected. I think we can all agree that 2020 has been the year of the unexpected. We’ve all learned new things this year. We’ve had to learn how to adapt, take risks, break away from certain routines that we may have grown accustomed to. There has been no cookie cutter path to success. Whether in the workplace, at home, in our communities or our personal lives, we’ve been learning how to stay “on-course.” Featuring Monique Gougisha Doucette, Shareholder at Ogletree Deakins in New Orleans Kerri Reisdorff, Shareholder at Ogletree Deakins based in Kansas City Karen Tynan, an of counsel attorney in the Sacramento office of Ogletree Deakins Hosted by Leia Schwartz, LPGA Content Producer
