Tired of wondering if you are being deceived about that possible promotion at work? Feel like your trust has been taken advantage of?

To find out the truth about lying, register for this seminar to obtain a secret advantage in skillfully searching for the truth. You will explore speech, voice, body and face patterns to determine when someone deviates from their normal behavior in an attempt to deceive you.

These top-secret tips used by the expert and thousands of others including law enforcement agents, polygraph examiners, and psychologists, will help you confidently detect deception.

In this workshop, students will:

- Examine key questions that differentiate truthful responses from deceptive responses, thereby blocking the path to manipulation;

-Study verbal and non-verbal behavior attributed to deceptive people, helping students gain an upper hand during confrontations;

-Identify two expressions that indicate when someone is about to discuss something very important

Part Two

- Where was the “hot spot” on the PrimeTime Live interview of the bellman connected with the Kobe Bryant rape case?

In this fascinating and interactive class, students will quickly discover how to identify these expressions and ultimately detect deception. The mastering of this skill provides each attendee with the expertise to be his or her own “lie detector.”
