Deception is big business with individuals, organisations, governments and the media lying to us on a daily basis! Deceptive behaviour is part of our DNA, woven into our culture and our history and in some professions, it is even expected.
Sometimes we are ‘willing’ participants in a lie such as innocent and harmless white lies, and these lies have no malintent.
But what we all need to be concerned with is when we are ‘unwilling’ participants in a lie – when deception is intentional and there are higher stakes involved – such as monetary loss, reputational damage and the loss of a contract or a client for example.
Deceptive practices and dishonest behaviour from other people can cost us dearly, with costly financial, emotional and psychological consequences putting individuals, businesses and economies at risk. Deception doesn’t discriminate and unfortunately it affects most organisations at some point, either directly or indirectly.
With corruption, fraud, misconduct and underhanded/deceptive selling practices happening every day, learning how to better detect deception is becoming increasingly important in the battle to protect ourselves, our reputations, our businesses, our income/profits/bottom line and other assets.
