Interviewer as Coach: How to Go from Hiring Manager to Superstar Interviewer
An applicant may look great on paper, but do they have the skills and winning attitude you’re looking for in a new team member?
In this 75-minute training session, you will learn how to:
Ask emotionally intelligent interviewing questions
to reveal a candidate’s true career and professional interests, allowing for a better match with your organization’s culture and style
Engage candidates in candid career discussions
that shift the employee development paradigm to the pre-employment stage of the employee lifecycle, placing hiring managers into the role of mentor and coach
Successfully partner with candidates’ prior managers
in the reference-checking process and make job offers that maximize the chances of acceptance
If you don’t select the right employees, no amount of good management will turn them into valuable members of your team.
The emotionally intelligent interviewer takes a coaching approach to candidate selection that engages minds as well as hearts. With so much demand for qualified talent, the interviewing experience takes on immeasurable importance in terms of candidate acceptances, and you never get a second chance to make a great first impression. Sophisticated interviewing techniques are necessary to ensure “high-probability” hires, and a consistent methodology exists to walk you through the hiring process step-by-step!
Identifying candidates who excel and who are geared for progression in their careers is as much an art as it is a science. However, it’s a “learnable” science if you are equipped with the right interview questions and understand how to interpret candidates’ responses. There’s never a guarantee when it comes to hiring newcomers into your company, but you can certainly increase the odds of hiring exceptional performers by making “high-probability hires” and ensuring that candidates are both technically qualified and suited to fit into your organization’s corporate culture.
Agenda for Interviewer as Coach
This training will highlight questioning techniques to help you assess candidates’:
- compatibility with your department’s culture
- reasons for leaving past positions as the link in their career progression
- willingness to assume responsibilities beyond the written job description
- desired pace, structure, ability to accept constructive criticism, and willingness to work long hours
