What is the most important behavior to show someone is lying?

We collect deceptive indicators in groups to raise our level of confidence in our assessment instead of using them individually. We are commonly asked if we watch eye movement and closed posture to identify deception. We do not use these behaviors in order to ensure our methodology is gender and culturally neutral.



How long does it take to become proficient using these skills?

You will be able to begin using these skills immediately keeping in mind it is no different than any learned skill such as a golf lesson. The more practice the better and more efficient you will become. Without the training, just like golf, you can practice mistakes for twenty years with the same result.



I work in an HR environment and I have to treat people with trust and respect. Can I use your interviewing techniques without interrogating people?

Yes, except for our law enforcement training these are not interrogation courses. Our customized instrutional packages teach corporate America how to identify deception for use in critical decisions, but treat people in a way that is non-threatenting and non-adversarial enhancing their ability to collect sensitive information without conflict helping to preserve important relationships.



Some people are really good liars and some are just obnoxious and rude. How can I interview these people and get good results?

Planning, persistence and professionalism are among your best tools when interviewing these difficult personalities. The good news is that the assessment and interview skill sets we share with clients are geared specifically to taking away the tools these Tough Nuts© use against us. (That's why we named our advanced interview course Tough Nuts©).  We can also boost participants confidence by practicing our techniques in realistic, but no-harm, live interview exercises during Live Fire© sessions.



How much does your training cost?

Most of our training is customized for specific corporate, government and law enforcement clients. During the year, we do provide open session training for individuals and smaller companies from various professions. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
