50 years ago, Dr. Paul Ekman’s discovered that you can decode the human face and that facial expressions are universal.  His research on emotion and deception determined that there are 7 key emotions that present themselves in what’s become known as “micro-expressions”.

Ekman developed training that’s become the gold standard for law enforcement agencies world-wide.  While incredibly effective, it has been largely unaccessible to the business world in North America…until now.

Read Emotions LLC is amongst the first North American companies authorized by Paul Ekman to provide certification and training courses on emotional competencies and deception detection for business professionals.

A person’s face is the roadmap to their thoughts and feelings.  Read it, and you’ll know where to go next.   Learn how you can gain an edge in all areas of your profession by using these emotional intelligence enhancement techniques.

“Emotions change how we see the world and how we interpret the actions of others.”

Dr. Paul Ekman
