My FB Live that I did in my From Hostage to Hero Facebook Group on Wednesday 03/27/19 has been uploaded as a bonus podcast episode on the From Hostage to Hero Podcast. This week we talked about Issue vs Relationship. Which is more important during voir dire? What should you start with? Which approach will serve you better?
My special FB Live from Thursday 03/21/19 has been uploaded as a bonus podcast episode on the From Hostage To Hero Podcast. This week we discussed why it's important to stop looking for your "bad" jurors and how to create an ideal juror profile instead.
In this episode, we're going to talk about why you need to stop focusing on kicking jurors off, and instead begin focusing on what jurors you want on.
When you're up against a hostile room of people who don't want to be there, you need real strategies that get results. Welcome to From Hostage to Hero, the show that gives you practical advice you can use right now in the court room, boardroom, or classroom. Learn how to move your unwilling audience to one that is invested in what you're saying, eager to participate and engaged in the process. Learn from the Attorney Whisperer herself, your host, Sari de la Motte.
Sari de la Motte:
Well, hello trial attorneys. Thanks for tuning in, and today we're going to talk about why you need to stop focusing on kicking jurors off, and instead begin focusing on what jurors you want on. In the last several podcasts, we've gone over the five Ps and the how you reverse the threat from SCARF, SCARF being the model that David Rock talks about in his book, Your Brain at Work. He was not speaking of juror specifically or jury selection. It's when I went and looked at that model and thought, "Oh my goodness, this applies across the board to jurors."
Sari de la Motte is the host of "From Hostage to Hero" and has been dubbed the "Attorney Whisperer" because of her unique ability to help attorneys communicate their real selves.
