The Lawyer’s Compass: Character, Ethics & Trust in the Modern Legal Practice, May 25

Lawyers are different. Our role in society in general, and the legal system in particular, places great responsibility in our hands. Our ethical rules call upon us to exercise that responsibility in a manner that differentiates us positively. Despite this opportunity, our profession suffers from ever declining levels of public perceptions of our value to society and trustworthiness. At the same time, technology and competition threaten professional opportunities.

Our future success and fulfillment resides in  learning how to  expand trust and confidence in each of us as a practitioner and in our profession in general. Doing so requires a comprehensive review how each of us can harness the power of trust, the key driver in successful relationships, to enhance  our personal and professional lives.

The Lawyer’s Compass focuses your attention on the critical interplay between your character and competencies and success in building trust in client relationships. In particular, you will:

* Learn How and Why Trust is the Primary Driver of Success In the Attorney/Client Relationship & in Your Practice
* Discover How Your Character is Derived from Your Values and Actions
* Identify Your Individual Personality Type & How This Guides Your Actions Daily
