Communication is the essence of management and constant flow of information is a must for any business to excel. Keeping this line of thought in our mind, Work Better moulds the participanta€™s communication skills to adapt to the constantly changing business communication environment. Lawyers spend the majority of their time communicating – writing emails, briefs, letters, agreements, talking, negotiating, running or attending meetings, training,  – the list goes on.
Be clear and concise, using specific examples, recommendations, statements, and observations.

Use follow-up open ended questions to make sure your communicated idea was understood as you meant it to be understood. Prepare an agenda for all meetings and follow it so that you cover what needs to be covered succinctly and efficiently.  If you follow a well thought out agenda you won’t waste your client’s time and money. Choose the right time for your intended communication.  Timing of a difficult conversation or delivery of an email can make an important difference to the outcome.

If you keep your sentences and words simple, you’ll cut down misunderstandings, the need for clarifications, and the time your readers need to spend reading your messages. For instance, instead of saying, “We didn’t make the project deadline,” a group hoping to deflect blame might write, “The project deadline was not made.” Not only does this sort of passive phrasing make sentences wordier, it makes it harder readers to understand what’s really happened and why. Although we’re all getting used to communicating at faster and faster rates, we need to remember to take a moment to re-read what we’ve written. Writing Dynamics™ will give you a writing system allowing you to get the best out of your business writing. Three dimensional tools and colour-coded diagrams bring balance sheets and income statements (P&L) alive.
More often than not, the loss of productivity is attributed to the fact that the employees and the management cana€™t express the views and thoughts to each other clearly and effectively. But now with advent of technology, we have cell phones, video conferencing, emails, and satellite communication to support business communication, so the process of business communication has become more complex and the need for good communicators has increased manifold.

Our step by step approach, helps the participants understand the concept and apply it in real life situations smoothly to achieve desired outcome . Prepare an agenda for all your meetings whether in person or telephone.  Ensure the meeting’s agenda content is consistent with your client’s Legal Strategic Plan.
You will be able to produce reports, proposals, memos, emails and letters that are sharp, persuasive and professional. Use the active tense in all of your writing to create clear, succinct messages that cut to the point.
Don’t do so and you run the risk of being misunderstood, saying something you don’t mean, or having spell-check re-write your words for you. If this is not something you wish to allow, please change the cookie settings in your browser.
So if we want a way to increase productivity and decrease stress, learning to communicate effectively can be the first step towards smoother workflows, faster turnaround times, and fatter bottom lines. The client’s Legal Strategic Plan is the plan you created or designed to solve your client’s legal matter.
