Overview (Program Summary)

Please join ACC Northeast and the Practice and Career Management Committee for this provocative program presented by attorneys, Alexander C. Gavis and Mark E. Young.

Lawyers who approach their clients with emotional intelligence (or EQ) have a competitive advantage over those who merely show off their IQ, both in the management of their practices and in relationships with in-house clients.

During this interactive presentation, learn the what, why and how of design thinking for lawyers. With practical tips that can be put to action and marketplace insight, this presentation will help lawyers in all types of organizations create and leverage a strategic asset founded on empathy.
