To put it simply, there’s no skill that matters more for successful leaders than their ability to identify and hire top talent. At the core of this ability lies interviewing. Poorly conducted interviews are rampant. They waste time and frustrate you as an interviewer.
High quality interviewers draw candidates to your company and make life easier.
This module is a distilled set of tools and techniques that I have gathered in my long career as a professional assessor and hiring coach to top private equity firms, venture capital firms and high growth companies.
In this interactive module, you will learn:
- Data-driven behavioral interviewing
- Initial questions
- Follow up questions
- Frameworks for questioning
- Practice with interactive interviews
- Asking negative information appropriately
- Coordination with you entire interviewing team
- Putting it altogether into an Interviewing Guide for your team
