Simple strategies make a big difference.
Conflict is a part of life, and lawyers must learn how to handle people who seemingly thrive on making life difficult for others. Understanding what drives difficult people and how to best react to outbursts, threats, and intimidation is an essential skill for every lawyer. In many cases, it can mean the difference between success and failure - and your satisfaction or disenchantment with the legal profession. It’s a skill that some people innately have, but most of us must learn. This seminar is designed to provide you with a basic understanding of the issues, causes and characteristics underlying the thinking, feeling and behavior patterns of difficult people - as well as simple strategies you can use to quickly and easily resolve issues before they escalate.This program also explores human behavior - including a discussion on why people act in ways that are directly contrary to their self-interest.
