Encourage Truth, Uncover Lies

New SmallIs getting truthful information important to you? Would you like to increase the likelihood that people are more truthful with you? Imagine if you could uncover signs of deceptive behaviour that other people miss.

When you ask questions to gather information, naturally you seek truthful responses. Even in settings where you realise the truth is likely to be hidden or twisted, your goal is always to ultimately get to the truth of the matter.

Reading people, connecting effectively and asking great questions are integral to your success but so too is increasing the likelihood that someone will be truthful, right from the start. Whilst you cannot ‘command the truth’ and then just expect it to be so, there are subtle yet powerful things you can do that will encourage more truth to flow.

Being unaware of how to effectively create a truth telling environment may actually result in pushing the truth away from you rather than attracting more of it. If you are relying on people’s honesty without confidently knowing how to make it easier or safer to reveal information, then the truth will often remain out of your reach.

Hidden truth and blatant lies can cause time wasting delays in business dealings, interviews and investigations. And acting on misinformation can be costly and even dangerous.

Wouldn’t you like more truth and less lies? Become a truth-attractor as well as a lie spotter and see the difference it can make.
