Staff Picks: Liespotting

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:21 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Oftentimes, when someone lies to us, we think, "I knew that wasn't true." Yet, for a moment, we trusted them, and we believed they were being honest. We then wonder how we could have been more certain up front, and not have been fooled. We'll be more careful next time, we tell ourselves. Then, one day, it happens again.

But now, the process can stop.

Pamela Meyer's book Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception has been reissued in paperback, and is packed with information on exactly what the title describes - identifying lies, and how to respond to them.

But it's not all about calling people out on dishonesty, it's about how to get to the truth and build better and stronger relationships.

Check out the author's recent TED talk which reveals more about the book and the ideas within:
