One Day Employee Workshop: Deception Detection Skill Mastery

Calibrate custom designs employee training in deception detection

The Calibrate Advantage

Calibrate works hand in hand with clients to carefully consider training objectives, budgetary restraints, unique concerns of attendees and their managers, and strategic business issues. Before Calibrate accepts any assignment, the team works closely with potential clients to ensure that training objectives can be met. Then Calibrate goes the extra mile and designs extensive follow-up to make sure the Calibrate Promise was kept: that attendees met their training goals, and that their managers are happy with the results. Deception detection skill is measurable and Calibrate excels at providing a scientific approach to training. Since workshops are custom-designed from the start, and training goals carefully assessed before training begins, Calibrate maintains a track record of extraordinary success.

Calibrate workshops are fast-paced, power-packed days rich with video tests, group exercises, interactive challenges and role-playing. Participants will experience a fun-filled fascinating day that zips by.  Attendees laugh as they learn, yet behind the scenes, Calibrate training staff will have carefully prepared custom workbooks, hand-outs, a special online learning area  —and they will be carefully assessing the group  to ensure they are absorbing the material appropriately and to make sure no attendee is left on the fringes.
