9:30-10:30am   The Factors that Influence the Decisions of Clients and Colleagues
Two separate brain processes affect decision-making. By examining the cognitive/conscious as well as emotional/unconscious elements of decisions, and examining relevant professional situations involving clients, colleagues and decision-makers, lawyers develop insight and greater leverage toward increasing influence over clients, other lawyers and decision-makers.
10:30-11:30am   Preparing for Influence
Substantive preparation is obviously essential to achieving maximum results in any professional situation, whether involving a client, an adversary, or in-house staff. At the same time, lawyers frequently compromise their solid positions and well thought out substantive solutions, due to failures in the people aspect of professional practice. In this section, lawyers learn how to prepare to influence clients and colleagues by identifying both the substantive as well as the relationship needs of all concerned.
