Author of Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception
- Jim Citrin, author of The 5 Patterns of Extraordinary Careers
Pamela Meyer has spent years learning how, and when, people are most likely to lie: up to 200 times a day, and if you’re strangers, chances are you’ll lie three times in the first 10 minutes of meeting. Meyer is Founder and CEO of Simpatico Networks—a leading private labels social networking company that owns and operates online social networks. Meyer has over 20 years experience managing media businesses: and, after a presentation on the behaviors of deceptive people, Meyer was shocked to discover that very little of the huge body of deception research had reached the business world. She set out to remedy that—and was very successful.
Three Patterns to Deception and a Radical Path to Truth
Pamela Meyer provides her audience with detailed scientific findings on which personality types lie, how deception is expressed in e-mail, on the phone, and in person, and how to detect deception through body language. You will also learn about statement analysis, interviewing techniques, and interrogation, and about how negotiators can gain the upper hand and close deals that last, by mastering deception detection techniques. In a multimedia presentation featuring real-life examples, Meyer keeps her audience laughing while they learn, and presents a path toward trust that emphasizes integrity, maturity, and the importance of having difficult conversations during difficult times.
Finding the Truth, Building Trust That Lasts
Ground truths about lying, detecting lies and the silent intentions of others.
Studies show we are lied to up to 20 times a day. Leaders are lied to more often than that, and often in high stakes situations. In this fascinating workshop and presentation, Pamela Meyer unveils the secret science of lie detection and interrogation that has never before been brought to the business world. Government officials, border control agents, police interrogators and social scientists have been studying and implementing lie detection and deceptive behavior for years—and Meyer is the first to bring it to the business world on a grand scale. Participants will acquire a new set of face-to-face skills that allow them to quickly and accurately assess deceptive and potentially costly encounters, and transform their support network into a circle of trusted advisors that can guarantee success.
Meyer takes her participants through a thorough training session: she leaves them equipped to read facial micro-expressions (which determine subtle signs of deceptive behavior and underlying emotion), and to spot specific behaviors that liars exhibit while in a negotiation, interview, or meeting, so that her participants might gain the upper hand in the boardroom (or anywhere else). Meyer coaches her audience on undertaking a deception audit for their organization and identifying key contributors to deceptive corporate culture. Audiences learn the nine basic motives for lying and are taught how to build a circle of trusted advisors and associates who offer deep, substantial support that lasts.
Liespotting: Proven Techniques To Detect Deception
GET TO THE TRUTH
People—friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople—lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day.
Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines—facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field—into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions.
Some of the nation's leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations. Liespotting for the first time brings years of knowledge—previously found only in the intelligence community, police training academies, and universities—into the corporate boardroom, the manager's meeting, the job interview, the legal proceeding, and the deal negotiation.
