The Benefits of Deposition Preparation
Deponents help tell a story. It’s important that they’re not just credible and likable during the deposition, but that they’re also confident and calm. They need to keep their emotions in check and articulate their thoughts clearly and concisely.
They also need to find the right balance between their vocabulary, non-verbal language, and tone.
Training and preparing deponents can help them feel more in control during the deposition process.
Adequate disposition preparation can also help to:
- Identify and reduce non-verbal problems such as eye-rolling, tics, or fidgeting
- Develop and practice a persuasive, conversational tone
- Help them stay focused
- Clarify their role and goals
- Eliminate—or at the very least, reduce—anxiety
Deposition preparation provides deponents with a safe harbor so they have the necessary resources and tools when dealing with tough questions.
These tools will help deponents practice and master strategies that can help them deliver the most effective message during the deposition.
