PEOPLE-READING

TO HELP YOU MAKE BETTER INFORMED DECISIONS IN RECRUITMENT, CORPORATE INVESTIGATIONS AND NEGOTIATIONS

I am an expert in people-reading techniques, including psychology, microexpressions, body language and deception detection. I can assist you and your HR team in decisions that can save time and money to your business. Give yourself an edge in meetings, collaborations and negotiations.

 

RECRUITMENT

+ Find out who you are really hiring;

+ Minimise the risk of hiring someone unsuitable for the position or not committed to your company;

+ Reduce the risk of having to subsequently dismiss your new hire and having to re-recruit;

+ Recruit the best talent who can deliver results for your clients and your company.

Hiring and promoting the right candidates saves you the time, money and inconvenience of having to re-hire and re-train a new team member. It helps retain and promotes talent truly committed to your company and your work.

 

CORPORATE INVESTIGATIONS

+ Save time by getting to the truth quickly;

+ Do not waste money by having long and protracted investigations;

+ Conduct investigations without losing the trust, respect and goodwill of your employees;

+ Get reliable information quickly and without upsetting your employees;

+ Protect your company's reputation by nipping problems in the bud.

 

NEGOTIATIONS AND COLLABORATIONS

Discuss ideas, projects, sales and contracts with others whilst having an insight into how they are really feeling. When negotiating in relation to legal disputes, find out what your counterparty is actually thinking.

+ Detect deception: find out if they are likely to be lying when presenting their pitch or their case;

+ Have insights into your counterpart's thinking;

+ Identify what information they are withholding or only partially disclosing and ask questions craftily phrased to obtain all information;

+ Having an insight into their thinking, weaknesses, feelings (e.g. fear , anger or stress) in relation to particular issues. ​ ​

 

The techniques that I use are:

+ Microexpressions: the science of how minute facial expressions indicate feelings, such as anger, fear or surprise, which I have learnt from Paul Ekman, the discoverer of microexpressions and foremost world expert on the subject.

+ Deception detection: identifying possible deceit and phrasing questions to elicit further information using psychological and counselling techniques;

+ Understanding the personality of people and the way they process emotions using psychology;

+ Body language interpretation to detect stress, discomfort, possible deceit.
