Granat, Ph.D. author of a new book, Get Into The Zone In Just One Minute and Founder of http://www.StayInTheZone.com is now providing seminars and coaching to lawyers, to law students, to bar associations, to law firms and to institutes for continuing legal education. Dr. Granat, who has coached many world class athletes is showing members of the legal profession how they can be calm, focused, confident, and in control when they enter a courtroom, a media interview or a challenging negotiation.
Like world class athletes, trial lawyers can benefit from "being in the zone." In the same way that top athletes know how to mentally and physically prepare for a big event, attorneys need to know how to get psychologically ready for the intense pressure and competition that takes place in court rooms around the world every day.
Attorneys, like professional athletes, are always searching for an edge or an advantage when they present their cases and when they need to successful battle their adversaries. In addition, they need to be confident and assertive when they interact with judges.
Some lawyers can get quite anxious when they are faced with an aggressive or unpleasant adversary. Other attorneys have difficulty presenting their cases as effectively as they would like to in front of juries which appear to be hostile or unfriendly.
"Some years ago, a young trial attorney came to talk to me because shewas getting quite anxious when she had to go to court. In a short period of time,he learned how to manage her fears and he actually became quite aggressive in the court room, "says Granat.
After talking to Dr. Granat a few times another litigator remarked, "Do you know how great it feels to be psychologically and legally ready for trial. I know the facts, the law and I feel confident and ready to go now. .It's a super feeling to believe that you can do an outstanding job for your client when the pressure is on."
