Are you ready to peel back human behaviour and learn how to read people with more accuracy using cutting edge behavioural science, neuroscience and behavioural psychology? Recognise deception, what people are really feeling, and elicit critical information to increase business and profits.
The Science of people and lying – unique presentation and training session and the first of its kind to be offered in Perth.
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.
