One of my favorite subjects to train on is investigations. As an investigator I know how hard it is at times to get a witness to open up and give me the valuable information they may have (or not.) Yet, all-too-often, investigators fail to get the critical information they need because they didn’t ask the right questions, weren’t prepared and didn’t know how to handle different types of witnesses.
I hope you will join me on March 27, 2012 (10:00 PST/1:00 EST) as I deliver a fast-paced webinar jammed full of tips and tools to help you get those witnesses to talk.
- How much information do you provide the alleged wrongdoer? Other witnesses?
- How to effectively answer those tricky questions: Will I be fired? Will the alleged wrongdoer be fired? Hey, I don’t want to be involved, do I have to talk to you?
- Keys to avoiding loaded, leading, compound and accusatory questions
- Valuable tools for dealing with hostile or uncooperative witnesses
- To efficiently use documents and other evidence with your witnesses
- To question witnesses you feel are not being truthful
