Communication is critical in any workplace, but especially in a law firm, which can often feel very top-down in management. This can make it difficult to find ways to listen and be heard. This session will teach immigration lawyers AND staff how to foster a culture of open communication that feeds everyone’s creativity and empowers teams to excel together.


  • Creating a culture of empowerment and equality in the law office
  • Learning key techniques for listening to understand rather than to respond
  • How to create confidence and speak your truth
  • Making real change based on feedback
