Topic 1:  Ethics
After attending this session, attendees will be able to:
• Recognize and interpret partial truths.
• Understand the ethical importance of proper question structure to ascertain the whole truth.
• Acquire the truth through proper questioning and analysis.
• Make better ethically fact-based decisions.
Topic 2:  Asking the Right Question, the Right Way, at the Right Time
• The deceptive will take advantage of poorly worded questions.
• Questions and settings need to minimize contamination.
• Questions need to be simple, precise, and direct using mutually-understood words.
• Telling lies is stressful; truth is peace.
• Know truth. Know deception.
Attendees will receive a copy of the book "Getting the Truth"
Joe Koenig will present the two topics above.  He retired from the Michigan State Police after 26 years and has 45 years of investigative experience in both the public and private sectors. He was lead investigator on the James R. Hoffa case, and investigated homicides, organized crime, financial crimes, narcotics, and public corruption. He authored the award-winning book “Getting the Truth” in 2014 and is a much sought-after speaker on how to discover the real message, distinguishing truth from deception, and how to “sculpt” questions to get the truth.  “Getting the Truth” won the 2016 Montaigne Medal Finalist and 2016 Indie General Non-Fiction Finalist Awards.
