A brief introduction to the syllabus, linking it with the previous Introductory course.
Following this lecture, students will have an understanding of the complexities and importance of assessing a source's motivating factors
A lot of thought has to go into how and when you meet your source. A first meet may be Face to Face (F2F) and thereafter technical (secure app) so that you can better judge body language etc... or if your source is in a different location you may have to mix/match a messaging app (i.e: Whatsapp) and video app (Skype etc). Safety and security is also a serious consideration. In this lesson there are a number of considerations that may fit your information needs.
This lesson discusses the capability of the source to deliver the information and the capability of you as the handler. Its the final component of the talent spotting spectrum.
Welfare; in a commercial setting you may not need to concentrate much on the welfare of the source. Typically, a meeting (online or physical) will require about 5-10% concentration on a source's welfare and if it is not capably managed, you may not get the best out of them. Welfare is connected to motivation and capability so spend some time practising your skills.
For anyone who is married or in a relationship or even just speaks to someone occasionally, active listening is an excellent skill to have and to practise. Of course, its an excellent way to generate information from a source and build rapport.
Simply; how to task a source and when to consider training them for specialised tasks such as photography and Talent Spotting
