Exploring auditing and training over the Internet

Remote metering demo coming soon. . . .

Intro: Here is a recent comment from Rolf. I tried out the software and it seems to work just fine. Maybe we’ll get a telepathic metering video online soon. :).  (I wrote the post title, not Rolf.)

Set-up to document remote metering:

One can record one’s screen with free software found here:

By setting up a session using computer meters, one can have it all on one’s monitor and ready to record. The PC’s meter can be shown on webcam, also if it’s a computer meter. That just requires the webcam isn’t a built-in one.

Auditor’s meter can be displayed on auditor’s monitor next to the Skype video. I have now a Mindwalker 3 that can do that.

  1. I have made several practice recordings of sessions with remote metering now. I use MindWalker 3A computer meter and can record metering and session dialog. Then I can turn it into a video afterwards, using screen recorder software.

    I will post one soon. Have a pc willing to participate, just want the session quality to be interesting and of an acceptable standard.

    Best,

    Rolf

    • Great. Does this include the pc holding the cans of a separate meter too, so one can see any similarity between the meter reads?

  2. Hi Paul et all,
    I need volunteers who are on Skype and are willing to do emeter drills and have dialog plus meter responses taped. No video of faces included, so the test-person-coach can stay anonymous. I have done assessment drill and other meter drills remotely with success. the reads are tiny but clear to the trained eye. I would like to try it on various coaches and post the best coaching sessions as video (of meter+dialog only).

    • Thank you for providing an example, Rolf.

      However, that one is very unconvincing (and remember, I know from personal experience that remote metering works!). I know a high sensitivity is needed, but the needle is very active. The instant read you are taking up could well be a coincidence if you are going only from reading the needle. If you are taking it up to some extent based on your perception of some shift in the pc’s bank, so to speak, the pc herself is not aware of that shift as she can’t see anything.

      I assume the pc is willing to give up any withhold she sees and is not pretending she can’t see anything like a new or unwilling pc might. So isn’t this an identical phenomenon to a false read, where the pc eventually finds an answer to the question only because the auditor is insisting on one?

      I don’t think this video is going to convince *anyone*. Sorry.

      You’re welcome to try me, if you want, on any process at all. I figure I can always clear up any BPC created if not resolved in the session. I have a C-meter that will put a display onto my computer monitor, so if you are Skyping it you can have both needles onscreen simultaneously. Neither of us would be watching the C-meter needle in real time, of course, but the playback would be interesting.

  4. This is how the session went. I don’t think it will convince skeptics. However, what I am looking for in metering are INSTANT reads. When I get one, I explore to validate — or discard.

    I would like to work with you on skype, Paul. Maybe we can set up some more sophisticated experiments.

    Best,

    Rolf
