As lawyers rise to more senior status, technical legal skills are no longer enough. They need management skills too, which means being proficient at delegating, giving feedback, and leading meetings. Give them the tools they need with this program. Customizable as a presentation or interactive workshop.
As newer associates build their reputation within the firm, there are effective ways to communicate with supervisors, support staff, mentors, and others – and not so effective ways. Help associates strike the right tone and send the right signals when they communicate via email, in person, or via video conference.
Interviews are a balancing act. The lawyers conducting your OCI, callback, and lateral interviews must carefully assess each candidate, while also helping your firm stand out...all in under 30 minutes. Your interviewers will learn to do both, for interviews that are more engaging + efficient.
This timely program takes the core techniques from our Public Speaking for Lawyers program, and adapts them for the virtual world. Your legal professionals will improve their virtual presence, whether they're speaking at a webinar, leading a virtual team meeting, or anytime they're appearing via a laptop screen.
