with Michael Reddington, CFI

The Disciplined Listening Method will provide our Members and Guests with the advantages they need to connect with their audiences, strengthen relationships, uncover new alternatives and influence agreements. The Disciplined Listening Method integrates current business research and best practices with the key components of four non-confrontational interview and interrogation techniques to instill the skills necessary for all participants to use the truth to their advantage.

Part One:

  • Recognize how quickly we make first impressions
  • Understand the decision making impact of the most common cognitive biases•
  • Understand the how we react to our observations•
  • Improve their interactions to establish and maintain trusting relationships•
  • Leverage the psychology that drives people to resist outside recommendations


Part Two:

  • Structure their requests to reduce resistance
  • Enhance their coaching conversations to improve commitment
  • Apply the favored persuasion practices of Certified Forensic Interviewers
  • Leverage the preferred resistance reducing techniques of Certified Forensic Interviewers
  • Encourage their employees, peers and executives to protect their self-Images at all times

About Our Speaker:

Michael Reddington is an Executive Resource, Certified Forensic Interviewer and the President of InQuasive. As Michael’s investigative and business careers evolved he discovered the cognitive processes that drive customers to commit to saying “I’ll buy it”, employees to commit to saying “I’ll do it” and suspects to commit to saying “I did it” are all nearly identical. As a result he developed the Disciplined Listening Method to provide people with the skills and perspectives they need to use the truth to their advantage.


Michael has been invited by companies, government agencies and executive groups to facilitate his programs across the United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. He has led over one thousand programs and educated over ten thousand participants from over 50 countries on topics including leadership communication, sales, negotiation, customer service, and interview and interrogation techniques.


Michael goes well beyond facilitating and advising. He applies customized content specifically designed to meet the needs of each client with a humorous and intelligent delivery style. His diligent preparation, attention to each participant’s concerns, and added context coalesce to drive home the learning objectives. With Michael it’s never a presentation or advisory session, it’s always an experience.
