Lie to Me 2

Learn the psychological models behind truth and lies, plus gain the skills required to identify 'hotspots' - instances when the strain between what we are thinking and what we are feeling produce observable or audible leakage across five channels. The course is designed to help you to read and evaluate the degree of truthfulness and credibility in what others are communicating to you.

Evaluating Truthfulness and Credibility

This content rich program will leave you with powerful science based knowledge that will change the way you see things in your personal and professional life. Applying this knowledge will give you the tools to gain the edge, read people more accurately, uncover hidden emotion and make more grounded decisions as to a person's truthfulness or credibility.

Previously conducted as a 4-day program, this course has been updated with course pre-work and is now available as a 3-day program. A 3-day time investment that will have significant positive impact on your professional dealings and provide skills and awareness you can apply immediately.

Course Purpose  

This program develops your ability to read the signals that indicate whether a person is being truthful and credible and the extent to which they may be lying. You will be better able to interact with and elicit information from others, especially in high stake contexts.

Who Should Attend this Program  

Any person who wants to improve their skills in accurately reading behaviour to determine truthfulness and credibility. Professionals seeking truth and lie detection training at this level often include: investigators, analysts, fraud and compliance officers, security personnel, border security, managers, supervisors, human resources managers, police, coaches and mentors, sales people, negotiators and executives. The ability to evaluate truthfulness and assess credibility is a crucial skill if you are involved in information collection, interviewing, security and risk assessment roles, sales positions or business dealings.

Key Program Benefits and Points of Difference  

This is a highly practical and interactive program. You will learn how to read facial expressions, plus the other four channels that reveal intent and can assist with lie detection: body language, voice, verbal style and the actual words spoken/written.

You will also learn about memory, and how you can work out whether a statement of an event is remembered or being constructed through scientific content analysis.
