To succeed in today’s highly competitive legal field, being credible isn’t enough. You need to look the part. This seminar examines the power of the “subtextual” conversation—body language, vocal patterns, and mannerisms that can raise or lower one’s status in the workplace. Based on 20 years of research, SpeechSkills' Cara Hale Alter will outline explicit “codes of conduct” for projecting credibility in all your face-to-face interactions from networking, to interviews, to meetings with opposing counsel, to courtroom interactions.
In this session you’ll learn how to:
- Cultivate personal gravitas -- in person and in virtual mediums
- Recognize/prevent the “tells” of nervousness and intimidation
- Strike a balance between authority and approachability
- Apply simple techniques to look your best on webcam
