Program Summary

Every lawyer that graduates from law school has the necessary “papers” that allow them to take the Bar exam, hang a shingle, and began “offering advice to those in need.” So far, so good. While law school may prepare an attorney for the “role of being a lawyer”, there are certain skills that separate “those that do” from “those that do…and achieve.” What are the skills that must be worked and honed to be the very best? This seminar will focus on 8 different “traits” or “requirements” that can provide the blueprint for success.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Plainspeak-the art of getting others to understand your message and purpose
  • Learning to systematize the “uncontrollable and unfettered hissing vipers of success”
  • Being Authentic to your Purpose and True to your Cause when others expect/request that you bend
  • Learning to be the Swiss Army Knife rather than the box of tools
  • Why Can’t We Be Friends Rather than Wily Adversaries?
  • Creating Expectations for Clients, Attorneys and Judges
  • Stay in your Lane Bro and other opportunities to tag out
  • Delivering the Goods and When You Can’t
