About the presentation

Like a mini-MBA for lawyers, this four-part series offers lawyers a unique opportunity to develop essential business and leadership skills that law school never taught but that lawyers really need to know to effectively run a legal practice and deliver excellent legal service to clients.  This series will also equip lawyers with practical tools and strategies to break down the barriers that contribute to disconnection so they can build trust and communicate for influence and impact. 

Join us for Essential Business Skills for Busy Lawyers Part 2 – Build Your Legal Practice Like a Pro.

Lawyers work with people all the time, whether they are their clients, opposing counsel, colleagues, or staff. In order to be an effective legal practitioner as well as an effective manager of the practice of law, every lawyer needs to understand the pivotal importance of empathy in the practice of law. Empathy is the ability to sense other people’s emotions, and to imagine what they might be thinking or feeling. Empathy is a key component of emotional intelligence, which is a core competency of any highly effective lawyer, legal professional, or law firm leader. Research indicates a positive correlation between empathy and operational performance, team climate, and employee retention. Law firms that embrace a culture of empathy toward their clients as well as their internal teams will have a competitive advantage in the legal marketplace.

The presenter is Colleen Byers, JD, MBA, RYT200 of Colleen Byers Mediation, LLC ( a seasoned litigator, mediator, legal educator, certified yoga instructor, and 2020 North Carolina Lawyer of the Year.
