Management Workshops
This workshop may be presented as a half-day or full-day presentation. The full day workshop offers more hands-on practice. In either format, through lecture and interactive exercises participants learn the fundamentals of behavioral interviewing, setting requirements, screening, devising questions and assessing candidates
3-6 Hours
Managers at any level and those who participate in the interviewing and hiring process.
Learning Objectives
  • Design behavioral and technical requirements for a position to be filled
  • Create interviewing questions that will help determine whether an applicant is qualified for the position
  • Ask questions that avoid legal complications in the hiring process
  • Start an interview, maintain control and finish gracefully and efficiently
  • Structure a process for making final hiring decisions, either alone or with an interview team
The facilitator uses a variety of training methods for each workshop, including large group discussions, individual work and reflection, assessments, small group discussions and exercises, case studies and simulations for role-play.
This is an interactive workshop with a 40/60 split between concept/theory and practical application of skills discussed. 
Workshop size should be kept under 25, so each participant will have the opportunity to gain techniques for the types of situations they deal with or expect to deal with.
