Title: Lying to Ourselves – The Role of Self-Deception in the Fraud Triangle

Presenter: Roger Hall, PhD, Business Psychologist, Compass Consultation, Ltd.

Course Description: Participants will learn about the role that Self-Deception plays in the Justification (or Rationalization) portion of the Fraud Triangle.  They will learn the basic ideas of cognitive dissonance and the role it plays in self-deception. Based on work about “Apparently Irrelevant Decisions” participants will learn techniques for combating self-deception – particularly setting up internal hurdles to prevent fraud.  Participants will learn about the role of habits, decision fatigue, and the concept of “ego depletion” in making a person vulnerable to self-deception. Finally, participants will learn practical tactics for preventing self-deception in their own lives.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Roger Hall is Business Psychologist and author with clients all over the country. He has one trick: He trains leaders to monitor and manage their thinking. Great leaders work on themselves first, and then success in their companies follows.

His clients are executives, professionals, and business owners. He is especially qualified to help sales professionals improve their leadership and work performance.  He helps leaders become better versions of themselves so they can lead their people better.

He has had the chance to consult and speak to all sorts of groups — from judges in federal courts, people in the intelligence community, company owners, executives, and university faculty, to social workers, teachers, and nurses, to construction workers, landscapers, and box-makers. He loves his work as a keynote speaker for financial services companies, judges, and technology companies.

Roger received his Doctorate in Psychology from Ohio State University in 1991. He has worked with thousands of leaders – from Fortune 20 companies to small entrepreneurial firms. He is currently an executive coach for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars program.  He and his wife live outside Boise Idaho where they watch the osprey fish from a nearby stream and the elk eat their shrubs.
