I stopped hiring great people and started hiring people who can do the job.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Carlton’s Training Solutions has implemented a better way to find quality people by partnering with the More than a Gut Feeling video third edition. Now more than ever companies need to make sure the people they hire cannot just fill the position but make an impact. The Carlton’s Training Solutions More than a Gut Feeling video illustrates how companies can strategically interview to find the very best people that make a difference.
The best way to interview is to first eliminate first impressions, stereotypes about people and personal beliefs about people to be able to make a proper assessment. Leave general impressions at the door. You’ll still need your gut to assess their personality traits, which will help in the workplace to see who blends best with others. But for who can do the job this is the way to go. It’s not a personality contest. “I stopped hiring great people and started hiring people who can do the job,” says Amanda Peterson of Cardinal Health.
More than a Gut Feeling III takes a step-by-step approach to the interviewing process. First they have managers make a list of all the qualities and skills required for the job. Then they make a list of situations that can happen that would rely upon those skills. Then they tailor the questions to the skills for the job. Then they can see how they put out these fires in the past. And that is the best indication of how they’ll handle them in the future.
Many believe to select a great employee you have to have a crystal ball or be a futurist like Joel Barker. Nothing could be further from the truth. Situations for discussion on the handling of those difficult issues at their former employment demonstrate their work character. And because most believe their personality gets them the job, they are pretty habitually honest about these situations and how they handled them.
Carlton’s Training Solutions has clients all over the world over that use More Than a Gut Feeling. But is it the only method to interview? A lot of companies hire out headhunters and interviewing organizations. But then the issue of blending personalities in the workforce comes into issue. So handling the interview process in house is usually the best option that companies implement. Targeting the right employees using the More Than a Gut Feeling III video is just one way Carlton’s Training Solutions has tackled the search for talent.
