Advanced Skills in Interviewing, Encouraging Truth and Identifying Deception

New Small

Strengthen Your Interviewing Skills

You have experience as an interviewer and you like the challenge involved in uncovering the information you need. You are always keen to add to your level of awareness, brush up on the essentials and take your effectiveness as an interviewer up a notch.

You are interested in continual tweaking of what you are doing but also want to learn to identify any bad habits you may have that may be preventing better outcomes.

Do you feel confident that you are doing everything in your power to increase the likelihood that someone is going to be truthful with you? This program guarantees to leave you with techniques to help you to encourage more truth from the start, fast tracking your ability to get the information you need.

Do you have the methods or techniques to:

  • Influence someone who was thinking about lying to instead be truthful
  • Change the mind of a person who intended to be deceptive
  • Allow someone who has engaged in deception to back-track and confess the truth

Add to that a boost in your ability to spot behaviours that signal stress or emotion and you will be streaks ahead of most interviewers.
