Session Description

Human Resources can positively impact their organizations through the process of behavioral interviewing. By learning this technique and coaching leaders throughout the organization how to perform behavioral interviewing, HR will be able to increase retention and reduce turnover. The best way to identify whether a candidate's characteristics and motivations match the behaviors needed for your job and your organization is by way of behavioral interviewing. In the behavioral interview, the candidate tells real-life stories and the interviewer challenges the candidate to expose as much as possible about what really happened. A good interviewer learns about the character of the candidate, mistakes they’ve made, how honest they are about their past, and how the candidate has learned and adapted to get to where they are (or are not) today. The Behavioral Interview is based on the idea that past performance is the best predictor of future performance and how the person handled situations and learned from the resulting success or failure.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn to apply a behavioral interviewing technique that helps the candidate reveal real-life experience.
  • Understand how to expose candidate character and fit for the job.
  • Learn how to create a full-engagement model to improve hiring success.
