The Influence of Color and Style in the Courtroom
Preparations for depositions, hearings, and trials can be tedious and time-consuming. Yet, there is no room for error with so much at stake. The image you project wields tremendous influence on how well these proceedings go. With the right focus, commanding the right attention at the pre-trial may be all you need to reach a settlement and avoid trial preparations altogether. Here is why this is a bigger deal than you may realize:
When how you show up is on-point, onlookers may not notice anything out of the ordinary. This is a very good thing. But, if how you look does not sync with what you say and how you say it, this is not good.
The right clothing styles and colors make your case in proceedings more compelling. Most people underestimate the power of image. This is what leads to a host of unnecessary issues, like people doubting or not believing what they hear. Why take chances creating cognitive dissonance among the jurors, judge, and others in the courtroom audience?
Personalize your role in life and in your career as you learn about your color DNA and how color psychology can enrich your strengths. Both are tools that will benefit you in the courtroom and in the future.
