You will learn how to apply the latest research related to investigative interviewing to workplace investigations of harassment, theft or other alleged employee misconduct.  Among other things, you will learn:

How to use a journalistic instead of a prosecutorial interview style
How to use the “Funnel Method” to gather all relevant information from each witness
How to utilize the “Cognitive Interview,” which is the most widely researched interviewing technique in the world
How to use, in certain cases, advanced questioning techniques proven to make it easier to differentiate between truthful and deceptive responses, such as:
-Asking the person to draw the event
-Asking the person to tell you what happened in reverse order
-Asking unexpected questions
Why you should never reveal to a witness that you do not believe him or her until the end of the interview (or a subsequent interview)
How to respectfully challenge a witness whose answers contradict other witnesses or the evidence
