Finding Your Voice
When attorneys can express themselves confidently as a lawyer, they ask the right questions to get what them what they need to advocate for their clients.
Once they have found their voice, they will use it to communicate effectively with their colleagues, their managers and, most importantly, with and on behalf of their clients.
When an attorney’s voice resonates with confidence, his or her clients and colleagues will trust them and come back again and again.
But what does “finding your voice” really mean? How can you ensure that your legal team can learn to build relationships with your clients and with each other?
They need to look in the mirror and be honest with themselves about what they do well and what they need to work on. They must seek, understand and integrate feedback to achieve constant improvement. They should consider what their clients must hear and prepare how they will give advice, not just research the advice they will give.
And when attorneys know that they’ve done a great job giving that advice, they will feel authentically self-confident and their voices will reflect that feeling.
I can work with you and your team to seek and help them find their true, authentic voice together. Once they have found it, it will be part of them forever.
