Basis of Influence 4: Consequences of Unintentional Communication

Use calculator to show CLE credit for your state.

If you've ever found yourself on the (losing) end of explaining what you really meant, you know how damaging negative misinterpretations can be. Attorneys will learn simple ways to improve communication, build rapport, and match intentions to delivery.

  • Discover why people misinterpret communication and motives, and how this compromises influence and harms valuable relationships.
  • Learn simple and effective ways to avoid unintentional communication and improve success when working with others.

These short courses build on sections from our highly regarded courses "The Trusted Lawyer" and "The Persuasive Lawyer." (The Basis of Influence Series covers additional new material, but there is some overlap and review.) Each short course stands alone, so you can can one or take them all!
