How to Read People

Dr. Jo-Ellan Dimitrius–America’s leading behavioral expert – will share tips for dispute resolution professionals to spot the critical clues to a person’s integrity, work habits, and sexual interests, and to interpret these signs with accuracy and precision. In her New York Times bestseller, Reading People: How to Understand People and Predict Their Behavior--Anytime, Anyplace Dimitrius describes how to read a person like a book. By decoding the hidden messages in appearance, tone of voice, facial expression, and personal habit, she applies the secrets of her extraordinary courtroom success to the everyday situations we all face at work, at home, and in relationships.
