Part 1: How to Project Gravitas When You Don’t Have Grey Hair (or Do, But Don’t Have Confidence)

Wednesday, July 19, 2017, 12PM - 1PM               

 Stoel Rives LLP (drinks provided)               

Clients hire lawyers for their competence.  But how do you demonstrate your intellectual brain power in 10 seconds - the time it takes someone to make a lasting first impression?  CONFIDENCE!  Participants will learn about the various aspects of executive presence, explore both verbal and nonverbal behaviors that create positive first impressions and discover how to lead with more poise, power and confidence.

Part 2:  The Long Haul, How to Set Yourself Up to Make Partner

Wednesday, August 2, 2017, 12 PM-1 PM

Stoel Rives LLP (drinks provided)

In Law School students are taught how to think like a lawyer, not how to succeed as a lawyer. You’ve got the analysis down, but there is so much more to rising the ranks at law firms.  Participants will learn what it really takes to grow in law practice.  Participants will explore the behaviors and mindset required at the various stages of associate development, including what business development activities and strategies should look like at each stage and what level of responsibility is expected as one rises the ranks. Participants will have an opportunity to visualize their personal brand and learn how to lead with intention towards their partnership goals.
