Publisher's Summary

You Work with a Bunch of Liars - Learn What to Do About It
Sure, everyone tells little white lies now and then, but real deception in the workplace is a poison that can destroy relationships, careers, and companies. Carol Kinsey Goman, a leading workplace body language expert, combines her own experiences with the latest research to identify 50 subtle physical and vocal cues that will enable you to spot destructive workplace lies. She analyzes the role we play in supporting lies - how our own vanities, desires, self-deceptions, and rationalizations allow us to be duped. And once you detect a lie, she provides tactical advice on how to respond, whether the liar is above, below, or on the same level as you - even if it's your boss.


What the Critics Say

"After 30 years in the training and development industry, I have come to trust Goman's expertise in body language and nonverbal cues in the workplace. I would recommend this audiobook to any leader working to improve culture and effective communication within his or her organization." (Margie Mauldin, President, Executive Forum)

DUH! Common sense - nothing new here

What would have made The Truth About Lies in the Workplace better?

Information based on actually research rather than opinion

What do you think your next listen will be?

Probably non-fiction - oh wait this was.

How could the performance have been better?

The information given so simplistic I don't think it was a problem of the performer but the author

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

The author is obvious a good observer but makes too many leaps to be believable. She makes too few references to actual research and minimizes or neglects to mention research that conflicts with OPINION.

Strongly discourage purchasing.
