A famous and respected business coach lectures enthusiastic Stanford students on how to spot liars at work. If you spend any time in any office, you should find this quite useful and utterly fascinating.
Watch business coach Carol Kinsey Goman break down ten different ways to identify liars in the workplace. She also offers tips on how to look honest when you are actually telling the truth. Both sets of tips are extremely useful in the marketing industry, but her advice can be applied across the board in all industries.
One sign of lying is the use of overly formal language, but you should be careful because “overly formal” is in the eye of the beholder. Do not add meaning where there isn’t, or you might easily become the office’s next disseminator of false truths.
Keep in mind that these are just signs of lying and not proof of lying. People may give off signs of lying even when they aren’t lying, but having a keen eye for the presence of multiple signs could point you in the right direction when you’re not sure if you can trust someone.
