Space is limited! There are many euphemisms we use when we think someone isn’t telling us the truth. And no one likes being lied to! So how can you be sure you aren’t being lied to? How can you interact with others in such a way that you can recognize the signs of a “snow job,” or when they try to “pull the wool over your eyes”? How can you identify verbal and non-verbal behaviors and clues that indicate deceptive intent?
The George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics at the University of South Carolina Upstate welcomes guest speaker, F. Lee Howell, to their Wells Fargo Speaker Series, for a day-long seminar that will teach participants to recognize those verbal and non-verbal clues. Howell, who graduated from USC Upstate in 1975, is a 26-year veteran of the FBI who worked many undercover assignments, and supervised the selection and training of other FBI undercover agents. He now runs a consulting company, The Behavioral Assessment Group (www.bargroup.net), which trains people to recognize and distinguish between a person who is uncertain of their answers and someone who is purposefully deceitful, possibly with the intent to inflict harm. He will share deception identification techniques, non-coercive interviewing and social influence skills, as well as tips for recognizing how someone’s deceptive strategy may impact you. Howell will also cover how to ask difficult questions the right way, and why that is so important to a successful interview.
The seminar will be useful for a wide range of people in a variety of professions, including human resources, law enforcement, education, banking, investment and business.
