Evaluating Truthfulness and Detecting Deception in Interviews and Communication

At the core of every interview and investigation is the desire to obtain the required information as efficiently as possible, whilst avoiding being misled or deceived along the way. The result of failing to get the information required or believing the wrong information can be measured in wasted time, financial loss, poor decisions, personal hardship and unjust outcomes.

Truth, Lies and Deception

Gaining the ability to effectively read behaviour, ask the right questions and uncover essential information is an ongoing quest and each and every interview or investigation is met with its own set of challenges and dynamics. This seminar explores:

  • Common traps that can stand in the way of getting the truth and spotting harmful deception
  • Tips to improve awareness of factors that contribute to getting the information required and 
  • Truth tools that can increase the likelihood that someone will be truthful
  • Methods that can intensify the signs of deception stress 

Get More Truth - Spot More Deception

The majority of lies that people tell daily are not designed to hurt or deceive. They are often branded as ‘white lies’ and are told, mostly without a second thought, to keep the peace, to maintain a flow of conversation or to wriggle out of something awkward or uncomfortable.

But, what about the lies and deception that can lead you to make decisions that you would otherwise not have made if you were armed with the truth? If you better understand the science of truth and lies you can immediately notice things that other people miss, giving you the power to take the right action and make better decisions.

This engaging seminar will provide tips and techniques designed to encourage more truth when it matters most and spot signs of deception early. By exploring some of the myths about truth and lies, you will be better equipped to bring more truth into your personal and professional life and avoid the negative impact of deception.

Decoding Truth Dilemmas™

A Truth Dilemma is ‘the challenge that comes with speaking, hiding or uncovering the truth’. The truth is, people are often experiencing truth dilemmas in their life or they may be unknowingly a part of someone else’s dilemma.

Examples of truth dilemmas are the times that you are holding back truth for fear of saying the wrong thing, regret over misleading someone who believed your lie, denying the truth or pushing truth away from your actions or behaviour and being conflicted as to how much truth to give.

The impact of truth dilemmas can be far reaching and can lead to minor and major health issues and disruption of personal and professional relationships. They can even fracture relationships and impact on the culture or harmony of an organisation.

This unique seminar will leave you thinking about ways that you may recognise, decode and navigate your own truth dilemmas that may be present around or within you.
