Secret Communication Skills for In-House Counsel

Develop your communication skills to impact and influence within and beyond your organisation.


Whether we communicate from online or face to face, strong interpersonal skills allow us to share ideas, points of view, expertise, and information effectively.

In today’s fast-paced legal and business environment, legal counsel at all levels find themselves being asked to handle more tasks, meet more deadlines, take on more responsibilities, and adapt to more change. Added to these challenges is the constantly shifting workplace, where coworkers cope with generational, gender, age and cultural differences. 

Communication, both verbal and nonverbal, is at the foundation of everything we do and say! The good news is that communication is a learned skill, and can be improved upon with the right training to get immediate results in your legal career.

In this practical course, you’ll discover the best communication strategies and new interpersonal skills for effective collaboration in your workplace, with your team, with C-level suite and with external counsel.

Do you know how to match your communication style with your work and project goals? Do you know how to manage and control challenging conversations? Do you know how to position and build your internal authority? Did you ever think how it will feel if you build more confidence in your communication? What about accepting criticism and giving constructive feedback? What are you planning to cope with remote work communication challenges? How about learning to have better and clear communication with your external counsel?

All of this and much more is part of this special course. The focus of this course is to heighten your awareness as a legal counsel of workplace communication, with the end result of becoming a more competent communicator overall.
