Topic: Emotional Intelligence: How to be a better lawyer by being a better human
Understanding our emotions and those of others can provide an advantage when dealing with witnesses, clients, and colleagues. Veteran litigation consultant, Dr. John McCabe, will share the five fundamental components of emotional intelligence: recognition, understanding, labeling, expression, and regulation. Unlike other forms of intelligence, emotional intelligence can be increased through awareness and simple practices, such as developing an ability to fine tune distinctions between emotional states. Finally, John will describe how attending to people’s emotions has led to several recent successes by encouraging witnesses and clients to identify and talk about their feelings concerning the case and their role in it.
