The Alabama Court Reporters Association’s Virtual Conference, “The Compleat Court Reporter,” consists of five seminars designed to enhance your professional development in the areas of
understanding your responsibilities as a licensed court reporter
I am excited to participate at this prestigious event with my fellow speakers Jessie Waack Gorry, Allison M. Hall, Carrie Sheffield, and Kimberly Xavier.
DATE: August 13, 2022
TIME: 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
My presentation, “Speak Up for the Record & Your Well-Being,” will take place 11:45 to 12:45. Details below.
Learning how and when to speak up is a challenge for most of us. Take it up a few notches when it’s your job to capture a verbatim record.
Learning how and when to speak up on the job or in life requires self-awareness; the ability to connect with what you feel and need in the moment while maintaining acute focus on listening and capturing the record; keeping track of exhibits; and myriad other tasks.
Like mastering steno, learning how and when to speak up is both an art and science, a skill that can be mastered.
The same is true for mastering our thoughts and emotions. Mastering a new skill requires repetition and practice, just like every other skill.
In this workshop, participants will explore:
Using your breath to quiet your negative self-talk and connect with your body
Understanding how feelings, needs, expectations, and assumptions drive your behavior
How to own your story, sovereignty, and your voice in service of the record and your needs
