PD292136 - Using Body Language for Powerful Persuasion and Prediction in the Courtroom

Session Description

Over 70 percent of communication is nonverbal, yet most people don't have mastery over their nonverbal communication—nor do they know how to read someone else. When juries are skeptical, witnesses stray off script, and judges are guarded, attorneys must make the most of every minute in the courtroom. The key to better persuasion is utilizing the 70 percent of the conversation that is not verbal. Practicing attorneys need to be polished in their performance to live up to the data and sleek electronic presentations they utilize. In many situations, the slides in the case take center stage more than the attorneys who present them. At the end of the day, the jury is more influenced by the 3D performance of counsel than the 2D charts and graphs. As one of 22 Certified Movement Pattern Analysts worldwide, Alison Henderson teaches both sides of body language communication. Join her in a presentation that brings the verbal and nonverbal together. • Understand how personal presence affects perception and effectiveness. • Learn how to read body language of juries, witnesses, opposing counsel, and judges to predict their behavior. • Effectively change arguments based on what you observe in others.
