Making Your People Skills Pay Off As An Attorney '13

Recorded November 22, 2013

About the Seminar:

As an attorney you must have good people skills, ranging from handling challenging situations to developing relationships that wear well over time. These skills require the ability to influence others and strengthen relationships in ways to increase rapport.

You will add to your EQ (your emotional intelligence quotient) in various legal settings by applying social science research to attorney-client relations, exchanging insights with other attendees, examining conflict situations and your options, and learning to better manage and benefit from non-verbals—yours and theirs.

When you increase your skills in working with others, you increase your ability to succeed in almost all aspects of work and life.
