About PEI Plc.
Building on the life's work of Dr Paul Ekman over the last 40 years,
Paul Ekman International plc (PEI) has been established to make
emotional skills and deception programmes more widely
With the international head office in Manchester, UK, the Managing Director, Cliff Lansley is responsible for building a network of quality assured Licensed Delivery Centres who will provide the training for individuals and for organisations across public, private and voluntary sectors.
The wide applications and benefits of this emotion based training are outlined by Dr Ekman as follows:
"In any transaction that matters whether it's between lovers, between parent and child, between salesman and client, between doctor and patient, between suspect and interrogator, between adversaries at an election, emotion is what we're looking for. Emotions tell us what matters." - Paul Ekman (www.bigthink.com/think-tank/lie-to-me)
Cliff is the Managing Director of 'Emotional Intelligence Academy Ltd' (EIA). EIA (www.emotionintell.co.uk) specialises is using reliable science in developing and delivering programmes in emotional awareness and deception. EIA is the parent company of Paul Ekman International plc which is the sole authorised global provider of training approved by Dr Paul Ekman (www.ekmaninternational.com) - established to spread this Ekman Approved, science-based training around the globe.
Cliff graduated in the UK in education/psychology at
Manchester University and has over 25 years experience working at
senior levels in public and private sector organisations
facilitating leadership, communications, emotional intelligence and
coaching programmes. His mission over the last eight years has been
to gather the science and push forward the research that can
'harden' the often termed 'soft-skill' of emotional awareness and
management (self and others) so that it is embraced more
confidently by public/private employers and schools.
Part of this innovative work aims to demonstrate how relevant research can be used in professionally designed training programmes to reliably train professionals from all sectors to read the true emotions of others, real-time, without technology, using the five communication channels of face, body, voice, verbal style and verbal content.
These professionals can then use this ability to work out what people are really thinking and feeling - also helping those in the legal and security sectors to distinguish between those who are being truthful and those who are not about their identity, recent episodes and intentions in high-stake contexts. Once the accuracy levels consistently exceed 90% Cliff is confident that the legal/security sectors adoption of the science will help commercial and public organisations to see the value too in understanding customers, clients, stakeholders and competitors. Cliff and his team have built a laboratory in Manchester to support the training design. He has developed a multi-disciplinary MSc in Forensic Emotion Awareness and is engaging PhD students within the laboratory to further the research into how best to develop reliable training courses and tools that can make learning effective and efficient.
PEI has now established 12 Licensed Delivery Centres around the world and this network will rise to 50 Centres over the next 4 years.
