Many interviewers pursue the technical and academic knowledge of a candidate. They can do this simply by looking at the Curriculum Vitae. Understanding how someone will approach a problem, resolve a conflict situation, maintain attention to detail or remain strategic, move away from failure or towards success, etc. are all important considerations. By using concepts from Neuro Lingustic Programming (NLP) it is possible to define the characteristics (or patterns) required for a position and then design the questions to understand the individuals style.
This one/two day programme will outline this technique and help you identify the patterns you expect within the role. You will then design the questions to ensure you find the ideal candidate. The programme will be presented in a practical manner, with workshops on preparing competencies, and mock interviews will be carried out to re-enforce skills acquired.
