Learn how to: use positive versus negative language and avoid using accusatory language; avoid poorly phrased questions that can cause negative emotions and communication barriers; assess and mirror personality preferences to ensure messages are delivered and received correctly and positively; use embedded commands (Neuro Linguistic Programming model) to persuade others; increase your Emotional Intelligence and remain emotionally controlled; diffuse arguments and aggression and defeat conversational challenges.


  • Detecting Deception & Body Language: Learn the truths and myths about detecting deception and why many people see deception in truthful people or, why they miss deceptive indicators; identify the difference between behavioral indicators of stress and deception, both verbally and nonverbally, by baselining a person's normal nonverbal and verbal language first; conduct statement analysis on the words people identifying verbal indicators of deception such as convincing, formalizing, distancing, softening, diminishing and non-committal language; ask key lie exposing questions; and ask effective questions to get to truth. 


  • Increasing Awareness: Overcome inattentional blindness by increasing your awareness; look and feel confident so that others trust and respect you while avoid coming across as arrogant; learn how to overcome biases, prejudices and assumptions so you can be a better listener and communicator.


  • Rapport: Learn how to be like others so they feel a connection with you, even when you are communicating through a communication channel other than face-to-face; know what to do and say with verbal and nonverbal language that will make people want to communicate with you and trust you; understand why it is difficult for others not to be nice to you when you are nice to them.


  • Leadership Skills: You will learn the dos and don'ts of how to not only be seen as but become, a respected leader and mentor. You will learn the 3 models of leadership backed by decades of research, you will learn how to effectively handle change with tools proven by decades of research in behavioral psychology, and you will learn how to motivate and inspire instead of emotionally burdening employees.
