A high percentage of malpractice practice claims and practice management problems are caused by communication breakdowns.  Communication problems create dissatisfied clients, decrease productivity, and cause conflict internally and externally. The growing number of communication channels only compounds the problem. We'll explain technologies and techniques that will help you improve communication, lower your stress, improve your service, generate happier clients, and lower your malpractice risk.

10:15 - 11:15 am - The Case for Lawyering with Emotional Intelligence: What it is, why it matters, and how to develop it

By the end of this presentation, you will be able to start to determine your own emotional intelligence and areas for growth.
