Have you ever promoted the super-worker to super-visor and lost a great employee in the process?  Have you ever hired the wrong person and had to fire them? 

Filling a position with the wrong person can be very costly in both time and money.  Knowing how to match the right person with the right role is the key to improving productivity, profitability and creating a winning work environment.  Learn how to get “behind” the interview and go deeper to truly understand a candidate’s drives and motivations.  Understand the truth about resumes, interviews and references – what to trust/or not.  This session will help you improve your probability for success in both hiring, retaining and engaging employees.

The Predictive Index® (PI®) is a powerful behavioral-assessment tool that can change the way you evaluate candidates and engage employees. Discover how managers can use behavioral analytics to work with their staff.   Learn how to get the most out of each employee, while creating a more engaging environment. 

Learning objectives:

  • Learn the practical applications of assessments
  • Learn how to make hiring decisions based on objective, valid and job related information
  • Learn how to put effective and complimentary teams together
  • Learn how to train executives to understand their own strengths and management style and how to effectively flex to others.
