In my years working as a body language trainer I have come to realize just how much my clients need clarity.
Body Language mastery seems like an impossible task in the beginning, but it’s simply a puzzle that comes together to give you a clear picture of the situation at hand.

What is Body Language and Why Should I Care? SECURITY
Regardless if you’re a lawyer, the bank teller or a doctor, it’s important to know when people are being dishonest. By understanding how body language works you can save the company’s image, loads of cash and even someone’s life.
It is important to know that virtually any and every organization is susceptible to lies and/or fraud. This is why it’s crucial to train your employees appropriately.
If you’re waiting for bad things to happen in order to react, you’re inviting trouble in your life. Investing in fraud detection education can turn out to be a brilliant investment.
Let’s take a look at Jenny’s experience involving a dishonest co-worker:
I have an employee (let’s call him Donny) who lies all the time. He lies about what he thinks about things— he tells other people that he thinks different things. And, his body language tells the tale.
When he lies, his eyes close to the point they are half open; he shakes his head “no” and he takes a half step back. One day I caught him red handed. We had a new client and needed to get information and documents from them so we could start work. I asked Donny to collect the info.
A week later, I asked Donny where the documents were. Because I knew his baseline, I watched as his eyes narrowed and he shook his head, taking a step back. He said he e-mailed three times, called once, and the client wasn’t responsive.
He showed all his typical signs and, this time, I knew he was lying because I was able to get into our e-mail system and see that he hadn’t sent the e-mails. —Vice President of a Design Firm.
