Detecting Lies & Deception at Work

Be armed with the weaponry of lie detection

Lying and deception are common human behaviors. How to Recognize the Signs That Someone Is Lying?

There is hardly anybody who finds it palatable to be lied to—lies eat deep into our hearts and in most cases, leave us with eternal injuries. Anybody who successfully told us a lie is confidently taking us for an underserved ride. The most heartrending aspect of it is that we have all being lied to at a point or the other. In fact, research postulates that there is a probability of being lied to between two to three times in a ten-minute conversation. That is huge and shows how unimaginably deceitful people can be!

From the foregoing, it is crystal clear that we all need to be armed with the weaponry of lie detection—the main focus of this course!

When you allow yourself to be incessantly deceived by people, it affects your success rate in life—you take wrong steps due to the wrong pieces of information you are being fed with and this leads to regret in most cases. As an experienced trainer in the field, I can categorically state that lie detection is a skill that can be taught and learnt by anybody!

It is important to attend this course because uncommon indicators of lies, the complex ways of liars and multi-dimensional means of deception will all be perused. When you get hold of liars and their deceptive ways, you save money, record more gains, suffer less heartbreak, make lesser mistakes and enjoy the better part of life. Aren’t these the essence of life? This promises to be a quintessential training session that quenches your intellectual thirst!

Indonesia, Malaysia, Bhutan and Cambodia are some of his usual training nations. To demonstrate how charming his training sessions are, many of his trainees have had the course to travel down to Singapore moments when his itineraries are filled up. The continuous flow of classes he conducts for people from all over the world has unarguably enhanced the quality of his delivery and also increased his knowledge.
