Training Course Syllabus:


Because all litigation depends heavily on the strengths of witness testimony, effective deposition and/or courtroom performance is essential to the positive presentation of your case. With limited time and the pressure of litigation, a challenging witness can make the attorney's work frustrating and can have an adverse impact on the outcome of settlement and trial.

This seminar will teach you how to prepare challenging witnesses as well as how to positively present challenging evidence. By learning to identify witness personality types and emotional triggers, you will learn to prepare each witness according to his or her personal needs. This seminar includes an interactive workshop in which you will gain critical skills necessary to affect change in your witness' attitudes and demeanors, to ease their fears and concerns, and to turn them into confident and communicative teachers. This interactive course trains you to help your witnesses control their testimony by identifying their most positive attitude, their most accurate memory and their clearest role in the case. Additionally, the course teaches key listening and response skills designed to convey the essential story of the case.

This course will guide you through preparing witnesses with challenging evidence by empowering them with listening and communication skills needed to testify positively under pressure. From identifying witness concerns and fears through honing their styles of delivery, we will teach you a stepped approach to enhance the clarity, confidence and credibility of even your most challenging witnesses. This unique workshop teaches research and communication principles through interesting lectures, entertaining demonstrations and hands-on skill-building sessions.
