Relationships of design are the most powerful relationships on earth.
This is because designing with someone else (or a group) is empowering.
But what does it mean to “design an alliance?” And how the heck do you do it with jurors?
I explain it all in this podcast episode.
The legal landscape is changing.
Due to Covid-19, many of you are being forced to conduct jury selection over Zoom.
The question is, can a group be formed over Zoom?
Give a listen to this podcast to learn more.
You get bad feedback from a juror in a focus group, mock jury or after trial.
That means you should NEVER do that thing AGAIN. Right?
You have to learn how to translate juror feedback by looking at the larger picture. That, and sometimes we do things, on purpose, that the jury won't like.
Give this podcast a listen to learn more.
Group formation. It's a big deal. I talk about it a lot; here in the podcast and in the book.
But groups really only need one thing to form.
Give this podcast a listen to find out what it is.
So you found your ideal juror. Now what?
Won’t identifying them mean they get kicked off? Shouldn’t I “hide” them from opposing counsel?
This really is a question about group dynamics.

Give this episode a listen and put these three questions in your back pocket for the next time you're in voir dire.

Welcome to the "From Hostage to Hero" Podcast, my name is Sari de la Motte, aka: the Attorney Whisperer. I have to apologize to my listeners for such a break in the podcast; I’ve been working on my book, From Hostage to Hero, due out this year, but now I am back in the swing of things and looking forward to talking with you regularly!
To get us back on track, in the first four podcasts I introduced you to the concept of juror as hostage.

We’ve been looking at the last three in the last podcasts – Status, Certainty, and Autonomy. Today let’s look at how to Promote Relatedness.
Sari de la Motte is the host of "From Hostage to Hero." She has been dubbed the "Attorney Whisperer" because of her unique ability to help attorneys communicate their true selves.
