Stop Talking!

I have spent a lot of time this summer in hearings and mediations. If I had forgotten, spending so much time in problem solving settings has reminded me to shut up and listen!

As a group, we lawyers love to hear ourselves talk.  We take classes in law school designed to hone our oratorical skills. However, I can’t remember a single “listening” class in law school. Can you?

The most effective and successful lawyers know how to listen intently because listening is the key to problem solving.  Are you a good listener?
