Face-to-face meetings occur all the time within a law firm. Have you ever thought about how the setting of your meetings could affect your communication with clients?
- Design a room that’s squarish, not an elongated rectangle. This is important because it allows for making good eye contact with everyone in the room. Having an elongated rectangle could make clients feel isolated.
- Invest in smaller, two- to three-person tables. You don’t want your tables to seem too deep. This can cause distance between the speaker and the clients.
- Install flooring that allows people to come and go silently. This will help people focus when conversating. Having hard floors can cause for a noise issue surrounding the conversation which will not be beneficial to the meeting.
