Topic:        Identify Common Strategies and Tactics of Dishonest People

Date:          May 22nd

Time:         11:30 – 12:45

Location:  Big View Diner

16637 Lancaster Hwy, Charlotte, NC 28277

Cost:          $25.00 (includes lunch)

Topic: Identify Common Strategies and Tactics of Dishonest People

Most people prefer not to fabricate a story is they don’t have to.  Your interview subjects likely have a core group of strategies they typically fall back on when they encounter uncomfortable moments during their interviews. Your subjects may use these tactics as road blocks or distractions but they are often just what you need to turn the interview around and obtain the truth.  Interviewers can increase the amount of truthful information they obtain and reduce the amount of resistance they encounter by preparing for, recognizing and accurately responding to the ten most common strategies and tactics of dishonest people.

Join Michael Reddington, CFI and learn the strategies Certified Forensic Interviewers use to turn these strategies and tactics to their advantage during witness, victim and suspect interviews.

Speaker:  Michael Reddington, CFI® is an executive resource, Certified Forensic Interviewer and the Vice President of Executive Education for Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates. Michael created the disciplined Listening Method after identifying that the cognitive process which drives interview subjects to commit to saying “I did it” is nearly identical to the cognitive process that drives employees and customers to commit to saying “I’ll do it” and “I’ll buy it”. As a result, The Disciplined Listening Method integrates business communication research and best practices with non-confrontational interview and interrogation techniques to teach executives the skills and perspectives they need to use the truth to their advantage.

Michael has been invited by companies, government agencies and executive groups to facilitate his programs across the United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. He has conducted hundreds of programs and educated over ten thousand participants from over 50 countries on topics including interview, interrogation, leadership communication, sales, negotiation, and customer service techniques.

Michael’s first passion has always been teaching. He started his professional journey as a special education teacher and baseball coach. Prior to joining WZ Michael had a successful loss prevention career with investigative and operational leadership responsibilities in New England and the greater New York City area.

Michael goes well beyond facilitating and advising. He applies customized content specifically designed to meet the needs of each client with a humorous and intelligent delivery style. His diligent preparation, attention to each participant’s concerns, and added context coalesce to drive home the learning objectives. With Michael it’s never a presentation or advisory session, it’s always an experience.
