Let’s face it, we all lie. Many of those lies are innocent white lies with the intent of making the other person look or feel better (That jacket looks great on you!) but other lies are much more hurtful and impactful (think: the Fyre Festival).

Most people can’t spot a lie because humans are wired to believe one another. In this episode of the Confident Communications Podcast, I’m sharing the common reasons we lie, which gender is more likely to lie, the lies each gender tells and which gestures can be misconstrued as lying (and which are dead giveaways for lies).

Not only that, but I’ll use a simple trick that will tell you whether you’re more prone to telling lies.

This episode is for parents, spouses, colleagues, customers, leaders–anyone who wants to become a human lie detector. I’m not going to lie…It will come in handy!
