Training

Sheila Markin Nielsen has translated over twenty years of experience and insight into developing the Skills for Success curriculum. This customizable training program offers three content modules, which can be delivered separately or as an integrated whole.

Interpersonal Communication deals with the skills that define workplace savvy, such as managing support staff, engaging with colleagues, facilitating meetings and leading teams.

Networking teaches attorneys to manage and build their own circles of contacts for both business development and image development in the legal community.

Organizational Skills covers a host of skills important to workplace effectiveness, such as managing time, delegating work, establishing priorities and overcoming procrastination.

Nielsen also offers Preparing for Success, specially designed to help new hires start out on the right track by projecting the right image, having the right attitude, and understanding how to manage relationships with their peers, partners and support staff. The course highlights strategies for dealing with disorganized colleagues, micromanaging partners and other difficult office personalities.
