Over the years, I’ve come across some true leaders in this movement. These leaders are the ones who create the visions and then, rather than just talking and delegating, they make sure that everything gets done. They’re always looking for what to do next that will make a difference. They’re on the cutting edge of ideas and projects. They tend to be people of broad interests, deep compassion, and solid intelligence in all the senses of that word: intellectual, emotional and spiritual intelligence. They are the changemakers who help society evolve. They are passionate about what they do and can’t imagine being any other way. They are integrators, renaissance lawyers, and collaborators.
We are sad to report the passing of another pioneer: Steven Keeva. Steve was a good friend and the author of Transforming Practices, Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life. For many of us, Steve's book and columns in the ABA Journal were our first indication that we were not alone.
Steve died on December 7, 2012 with his wife, Jan, holding his hand.
We are sad to report the loss of yet another of our pioneers: author of Transforming Practices, Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life (ABA, 2011), columnist for the ABA Journal for several years, and dear friend to many of us, Steven Keeva passed away on December 7. His wife, Jan, was at his side and holding his hand.
We created this video series to honor Steve at the 2009 IAHL conference.
Becoming an Integrative Lawyer
“Studies show that top-performing lawyers outstrip other lawyers in competencies such as stress management, independence, self-knowledge, general mood, problem solving, and interpersonal competencies.” Susan Daicoff, author of “Lawyer, Know Thyself”
