INVESTIGATOR TRAINING

QUESTION LIKE AN INSPECTOR

A short, targeted two-hour online workshop that allows us to transfer the best of our questioning techniques to you in a "civilized", business-friendly version.

Practical objectives

Establish the right climate of trust, identify your objective and prepare an appropriate questioning grid.

 

Use the best questioning strategy depending on the interlocutor, climate and objectives, and identify contradictions.

 

Use non-verbal communication to identify clues to contradictions (these are clues, not certainties; lies are not so easily detected).

Themes and content

The first 20 minutes:

Create a climate that facilitates mutually trusting communication, prepare questions in funnel mode or Landry mode, identify attitudes related to spontaneous, sincere, unaffected responses and use them as a reference grid, take notes without writing, adjust question preparation.

 

Questioning:

Closed and open questions, validation questions, factual questions, curiosity questions, naivety questions, provocation questions, follow-up questions, assertive questions.

Practical exercise comparing different strategies.

 

Complementary analyses and discussion conclusions:

Strengths and weaknesses of non-verbal observation, voice intonations, live lexical analysis (anything but academic!), fact-focused conclusion, maintaining trust and summarizing facts.  

Other information

Trainers come from police and intelligence services.

2-hour workshop.

Available in face-to-face or distance learning.
