I firmly believe all lawyers have untapped advocacy potential. We can work harder at what we already know how to do—read, study, mimic and adapt the techniques of others. And then, there is the next level. I have watched Claude help scores of lawyers (including me) get to their next level.
I think of what Jonathan Haidt has written: “Anyone who values truth should stop worshipping reason.” Claude sidesteps reason and helps lawyers get to the truth of who they are. Connecting with jurors and judges becomes easier—even fun. Because there is a powerful advocate inside, who wants to speak. Claude clears the obstacles, allowing that voice to be heard.

With VoiceLeader there’s the option to sing or speak with coaching that avoids traditional formulas and gets right to the point. Natural gravitas, humor, pacing, agility, body language stem from re-empowering connection to mission within highly evocative and lively music. No previous ability is needed as we experience the charismatic and magical quality of authentic, value-driven presence.
In addition to “traditional” vocal exercises, there are short, single-line affirmations – given call and response style. These phrases transform the challenges articulated by participants and group leaders and the room is inspired with a parade of astounding break-throughs. We work with blues riffs, swing riffs, soaring anthems, rap, and tongue-twisters. Failure is off the table, leaders emerge, teams are elevated, and audiences cheer from the edge of their seats.
