Whose Lying? is The BAR Group's essential training course. It focuses on helping our clients obtain reliable, useable information from their interviews by employing a streamlined combination of detection identification techniques, interviewing and social influence skills. These skillsets are designed to significantly enhance the information gathering/verifying tools our clients already use, while helping them maintain the good relationships with others that they have established over time. The course material is based on the most reliable scientific and experiential techniques known, continually updated for current improvements to meet the dynamic challenges of todays global environment.

The day-long training is composed of two inter-dependent skill sets – Identifying Deception and Interpersonal Interview Skills.

Identifying Deception (ID):

In this segment, participants learn to identify reliable verbal and non-verbal cues that indicate people:

  • may be unsure about the veracity of the information they are providing
  • may be omitting relevant information, or
  • may be purposely lying about the information they are providing

These veracity assessment skills are applicable to all forms of personal and professional communication, whenever not knowing the facts could have a significant negative impact on your future success.

Interpersonal Interview Skills© (IIS):

Interviewing is a dynamic, interpersonal event. A person being interviewed, especially a deceptive person, continually weighs the behaviors of an interviewer before responding. Accordingly, participants in this training learn how to integrate deception identification with effective interview techniques. The thoughtful coordination of these non-confrontational skills is designed to optimize the discovery of critical information that is usually elusive and goes undetected in most interviews. Systematic development of well-crafted and well-timed questions is combined with application of social influence practices that encourage answers to the most sensitive topics, even from difficult people. The ability to simultaneously maintain, even improve, the relationship with the person being interviewed is an invaluable aspect of the BAR Group’s approach to interviewing. Interpersonal Interview Skills can provide a positive impact on critical business, professional and personal decisions.

Valuable on its own, Who's Lying? is the prerequisite course for advanced BAR Group training, consultation and analytical products.
