What Pamela Barnum Talks About:

Crack the Code of Deception
The ability to read people can make or break deals, negotiations – and relationships. Learn how to decode the clues of deception so you can make better decisions about who to hire, fire, and partner with. Participants will learn how to crack the code on deception using real-world techniques – to spot lies and assess people immediately. Forget about what you’ve learned from watching police and lie detection dramas on TV because those equip you to detect deception as much as a medical drama equips you to perform surgery.

During this one-of-a-kind keynote or workshop led by former undercover police officer and federal prosecutor Pamela Barnum – participants will learn techniques used by real law enforcement and federal agencies to detect deception, build rapport, and establish trust.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Tell the difference between anxiety and deception so they can get to the truth faster and more accurately – ensuring accuracy and avoid wasting time and money
  • Increase self-awareness in order to manage and access personal bias – this is diversity training with real and measurable results
  • Identify nonverbal cues for deception – learn how to filter out what’s really being said so you can make informed decisions

Control Perception
Research shows that your credibility, confidence, likability – and trustworthiness are evaluated within seconds. That means that even if you’ve rehearsed your words perfectly, and you say all the right things, if your body language isn’t in alignment with what you say – you lose. Our brains react to nonverbal messages before anything else. That’s how we’re wired.

The impact of your nonverbal communication lies in the perception of what others think. People make an emotional decision about what they see, and it takes a long time – and a lot of evidence to change their minds. By then, the damage is done. Understand and interpret the nonverbal signs you’re communicating – as well as the signs others are sharing so you can build rapport and develop trust with anyone.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Decipher body language clearly and accurately using an Agenda Filter
  • Apply insider techniques used by law enforcement to build rapport quickly and easily with anyone – even in challenging environments
  • Express empathy and confidence with their body language – turning first impressions into winning impressions

Major, Minor, and Micro Non-Verbals: New Body Language Skills You Need to Win
Master the art of decoding and interpreting non-verbals – so you can improve sales, negotiations, and relationships. Most body language programs focus on large body movements or micro facial expressions, and as a result – leave a lot of information behind. Learn the secret second language that’s been reserved for experts and law enforcement. During this dynamic interactive keynote, participants will learn how to use and interpret major, minor, and micro body language movements to negotiate better deals, close more sales – and build trusting relationships.

Excellent communication skills are necessary for success. Learn the secrets of an undercover police officer and federal prosecutor to build rapport, influence with elegance – and win trust in any relationship.
