04:15 PM – 05:15 PM: Closing Keynote: READ (HIDDEN) EMOTIONS - The Science Behind a New Skill

Dan Seidman, Managing Director, Read Emotions

You can have access to information about others, which you have never before known - what they are thinking and feeling. In this unique and highly-interactive experience, you'll discover the science of reading (hidden) emotions in the face. Applications for this are broad, improving interactions related to leadership, selling, hiring and more, including management of personal relationships. It is important to know what someone is thinking and feeling when your goal is to build constructive relationships through leading, coaching, selling or hiring. People often attempt to suppress their emotions. But there is “leakage,” known as micro expressions, which occur in 1/5th of a second. 

In this unique and highly interactive communication program, you will experience a special video tool and hands-on coaching to help you increase Emotional Intelligence, as you learn to spot these emotions. These potent skills are based on 40+ years of research by Dr. Paul Ekman. In the past, training has been kept to law enforcement and security firms. Organizations who use these detection skills across the globe include the Interpol, CIA, FBI, TSA, Scotland Yard, Emirates Airlines and more. Hollywood embraced this when Lord of the Rings won the Academy Award for Visual Effects using the science.

This elite training has been re-designed so business professionals can adopt these potent techniques and leave this experience enabled to better manage the feelings of others. Whether you lead, sell, coach or hire, you can see an increase in your EQ, influence and communication skills.

You will learn to:
• Read suppressed emotions in the faces of others by experiencing a special video tool.
• Discover the science and function of emotions, by improving how you personally react to triggers which can undermine relationships with others.
• Receive coaching to improve your new skills by watching slow motion videos, news clips and learn which muscles in the face indicate which emotion is being suppressed.
