Pittsburgh, PA – Robert A. Creo has 40 years of practical experience in the dispute resolution field as an attorney, author, arbitrator, and mediator. Today, Creo is paying it forward as an Adjunct Professor at Duquesne School of Law and the principal  of the Happy! Effective Lawyer, LLC, educating lawyers, especially millennials, on specific ways to promote job satisfaction.

Creo believes the concept of work-life balance is based on a false premise. It’s not simply a matter of working less, but rather deriving more satisfaction from the considerable time you spend working each day. You have to whistle while you work. You have to want to go to work.

“There are going to be unpleasant tasks, there are going to be tasks that are boring, and there will be tasks that you'll perceive are beneath you. They're just part and parcel of work and life. You have to accept it and be content with what you do.”

“I care because I am a lawyer, I always wanted to be a lawyer, and I want people to say they're proud to be a lawyer.” says Creo. “There’s no job where every minute is joyful. It's just unrealistic, and probably unhealthy, to expect that. You want to be passionate for your work, but it's OK to be engaged and satisfied, and for that to be good enough.”

"Creo's goal is to help lawyers via online courses and workshops that teach eight core competencies, backed by scientific research, that enhance performance and contentment."
