Learn to read people and spot lies through the lens of behavioural science

Some facts about deception:

  • Without specialised training most of us are no better than chance at recognising deception.
  • Possessing advanced people reading skills is critical for communication with others and in the battle to protect yourself, your reputation, your business, your income/profits/bottom line and other assets.
  • Sometimes we are ‘willing’ participants in a lie such as innocent and harmless white lies, and these lies generally have no malintent. But what you need to be concerned with is when you are an  ‘unwilling’ participant in a lie – when deception is intentional and there are higher stakes and costs involved – such as monetary loss, brand or reputational damage, the loss of a contract or a client or an inappropriate job hire for example.

The benefits you'll get from attending this session

  • Read how colleagues, business partners, clients, customers and other stakeholders are really feeling by recognising concealed emotions, and use this information to make more informed decisions and have the upper hand in your interactions. Your ability to build trust and rapport, get to the truth, and influence people and situations is crucial when dealing with the complex world of emotions and deceptive behaviour you’ll encounter!
  • Apply your newly acquired people reading and lie detection skills in many situations such as meetings, presentations, negotiations, sales pitches, sales transactions, purchases, audits and interviews, to name a few.
  • Observe people and situations in a whole new light and have the skills to extract more data and information.
  • Communicate with more authority and credibility by being aware of your own baseline behaviour, your emotions and what non verbal communication you are revealing to others with your face and body.
  • Learn how to consciously disrupt yourself and the biases you carry around about people to capitalise on more opportunities.
  • Expand your emotional intelligence, learn what triggers your emotions and how to better manage them, and how to ‘choose’ your behaviour to build trust and credibility, motivate, persuade and communicate with more impact.
