Collapse Communicating Across Generations: Improve your skills with clients, in the courtroom and even with your family (Philadelphia, Simulcasts, Live Webcast)

Traditionalists/Baby Boomers/Generation X/Millennials/Cuspers

What do these terms mean, why do they matter and how can you communicate across generations whose life experiences, expectations and values differ greatly?

 

Communicating with Clients, Co-Workers, Adversaries, Judges and Juries

If you practice law, then communication is at the heart of your business – whether you are a transactional negotiator, a trial lawyer or in-house counsel. If communication style needs to vary with the audience, then how do you communicate with a mixed group that spans multiple generations? Throughout your legal career and your personal life, there will be situations where your message must reach a diverse age group and do so effectively and succinctly.

 

Learn from the Experts

Join psychologist and jury consultant Ann Greeley, together with state court and federal judges, for their expert insights on the challenges of communicating across generations. Improve your skills with your clients, in the courtroom and even with your family members. Learn to think differently and see the world through the filters of other generations. Identify what shared life experiences and changes in the world have helped to make each generation alike and different. Dispel some myths and walk away with a new skill set that allows you to use generational differences to your advantage.
