Use ‘Triple Play’ and Be Your Own AdvocateJune 2010 – Articles Philadelphia Bar Reporter
Women need to take a “Triple-Play Approach” to advance in the legal profession, a communications skills coach told members of the Women in the Profession Committee at a recent meeting.
Jezra Kaye discussed how women attorneys can be their own advocates of career success. Kaye discussed the challenges faced by women with self-promotion and provided tips to improve career prospects.
In seeking out advancement, Kaye suggests a triple-play approach as follows: make your main point (I want to be lead attorney on this case); give support for your main point (I have been lead attorney in the past. I have worked on similar cases.); and, make your main point again (That is why I should be lead attorney).
