“The crossover of skills sets was amazing”
Can learning improv skills help in your legal career? The answer is a resounding “Yes”. We see it all the time with our Improv Training for Lawyers workshop.
The foundational elements of improv mirror many of the skills that lawyers utilize every day to be successful – skills that are essential in the courtroom, when conducting a deposition, addressing a room of people, talking with a potential client and in all negotiations.
This workshop provides you with key concepts and skills of improvisation, clearly connecting how these tools can be immediately applied in your world as a legal professional.
The workshop focuses on:
– embracing the unpredictable
– thinking on your feet
– staying present and open-minded
– becoming a collaborative leader and how to apply this in any setting to facilitate a desirable outcome
– clearly and confidently expressing your message
– how body language, posture and voice control impact all interactions
– how to quickly develop rapport with clients, fellow lawyers, jurors and other stakeholders
– creating authentic interactions
– trusting your intuition
– turning any mistakes into “wins”
– the role of storytelling
This workshop will increase your ability to handle unpredictable situations and shifting narratives, negotiate settlements, express your thoughts and command a room with your presence, content and delivery. And you’ll definitely be more comfortable thinking on your feet, with techniques to help you stay in the moment and react quickly from a mindset of confidence and strength.
We’ll custom design the course specifically to your group – and we can come to your office for a morning or afternoon session, or host you here at our beautiful space on Granville Island in Vancouver (and if we do host, you can make it a fun afternoon outing for your group, enjoying a drink and a lite bite after the workshop in our fully-staffed and stocked bar, overlooking the Granville Island Marina).
