ATTITUDE: n. /at-i-tood/ Your position relative to a frame of reference.
Anxiety lies at the heart of some of the worst decisions in history. Increased blood pressure, rapid heart rate, and clouded thinking ensure tense nonverbal behavior and scattered oral responses. Unprepared witnesses who stand before experienced litigators are left unarmed in the lion’s den.
COURSE n. /kors/ Your general line of orientation.
Witnesses must be taught the skill of answering. We utilize our knowledge of psychology and communication to empower trial and deposition witnesses. Fear imperils decision-making. We mitigate anxiety so witnesses can deliver their peak performance.
EFFECT: n. /if-fect/ A change or consequence of action.
A well-prepared witness navigates dangerous language. A well-prepared witness is aware of decision-makers’ perceptions. A well-prepared witness is not easily manipulated. In essence, your witness plays the role they were cast for and completes your story.
