There are times when we know that someone isn’t being truthful, but we may deny it. Other times, it’s crystal clear and time to address it. Here are some ways to do that:
Do your homework: If you have a keen sense that you’re being duped, be sure you can support your accusation. Pointing fingers without solid evidence will only set you back.
Observe and listen up: Pay attention to their body language and how they tell their story. If something doesn’t seem quite right, it probably isn’t. Ask a question and throw them off guard.
Let them know how you feel: Showing them how their actions affected you may lead to the truth.
Hold them accountable: Reinforce to them that deception is hurtful and that you’d rather they be honest.
