The Truth about Detecting Lies

When it comes to body language and detecting lies, many people associate nose touching, ear pulling, eye contact and eye direction with lying. The truth is, these are widespread myths.

While most people think they are good at spotting deception, studies show the majority of people are only 54% accurate in detecting a lie–including law enforcement professionals.

“Sophie always comes prepared, does extensive research before each training, and tailors each presentation to the client's needs.”

Detecting Lies

What you’ll Learn

You'll learn about microexpressions and nonverbal communication cues that point towards deception and reveal hidden emotion. We'll expose the behaviours that are the most reliable and telling. Those that say one thing, when words say another and those that convey a specific meaning, such as, "I got away with that".

You’ll have the opportunity to practice and test your new knowledge, learning how to observe–a skill in itself.

You'll gain the power to detect red flags of deception, centred around specific points, empowering you to dig deeper into the right areas or change your line of inquiry to seek more evidence.

You’ll also gain insight into body language and expressions that indicate dislike, discomfort and distress, helping you to identify vulnerable or at-risk individuals and better support the people you interact with or lead.

You’ll gain a good understanding of people, observing their true emotional state, in real time–ultimately honing your emotional intelligence.

“Sophie has delivered two programs, the first on deception detection for school leaders aimed at improving their investigation techniques, the second focusing on the use of body language to enhance success for women in leadership.

Participant feedback from both programs was overwhelmingly positive, both in terms of the evidence and research based content and Sophie’s high quality, engaging and authentic presentation skills.”
