Evidence Collection: Top 3 Tips for Improving your Investigative Interviewing Skills Series
“Ideas, more than money, are the real currency for success.” – Eli Broad
I’m back in the office after a great week in San Antonio at Safety 2018 where I had the opportunity to share, “Top 3 Tips for Improving your Investigative Interviewing Skills.”
After presenting my Flash Session, an attendee stopped by the TapRooT® booth and told me, “If I would have known those simple tips at the beginning of my career, it would have completely revolutionized the way I did investigative interviewing.”
The tips I presented were, indeed, simple to incorporate. However, the quality and quantity of information an investigator can gather by incorporating these tips into his or her interviewing process are significant. If you are familiar with the TapRooT® 12-Step Interviewing Process, you’ll find that these three tips are built into the process but you may never have considered how or why they have such an impact.
Next Thursday, I will be starting a three-week series examining each tip. Don’t miss the first column, “The Power of Rapport,” and learn about this important interviewing skill. Work smarter, not harder. Take your investigative interviewing skills to an entirely new level and join me for the series.
