Everyone needs and wants to feel accepted, included, heard… and be a part of something bigger than themselves. It’s a basic human need - as important to us as food… clothing… or shelter. Helping others feel like they belong is the cornerstone of inclusive leadership.

The need to feel like we belong doesn’t end when we enter our place of work.

In order for businesses to survive and remain competitive, they must respond to this changing environment. As Tom Peters observes in Thriving on Chaos, “Excellent firms don’t believe in excellence—only in constant improvement and constant change.” As part of their response to change, successful organizations seek ways to support and foster employee growth and development. Managers are developing skills to facilitate this process. They are acting as mentors to their employees. Coworkers and other employees with company experience and skills are also offering their services as mentors to less-experienced employees.

From the creators of More Than a Gut Feeling™, this powerful program offers a fresh and vibrant new approach to legal and effective hiring. Based on the time-tested truth, "past actions predict future performance", ACTIONS Speak! combines the elements of memorable storytelling, practical content and realistic acting to weave together a highly effective interview skills training course for a new generation of interviewers.
Past actions are still the best predictor of future performance. So, stay focused on asking behavioral questions about job requirements. For example, if the job does require honesty, you might ask questions this, "When were you honest, even though it was embarrassing for you? What did you say?
Writing things down is important. And with written questions are part of your interview preparation, you have proof of what you asked the candidate and that you asked the same question of every candidate. Those are legal issues. Before you write questions, you need to do some preparation.
When an answer is a generality, self-promotional, not behavioral, isn’t complete or the candidate’s non-verbals don’t match what the candidate is saying, follow-up with behavioral probes to draw out more information. You discover that the specifics the candidate gives can be linked to job requirements.
The "like me" syndrome is like a bias. Over weighing the positives of a candidate because you have many things in common will usually lead to a less than optimal hire.
When a candidate takes over the interview - maybe by non-stop talking or story-telling - it's okay to re-take control of the interview by politely interrupting and re-focusing the candidate back to the task at hand.
Reverse information is the opposite of what the candidate told you, or the opposite of your reaction to the candidate. It is designed to give you a broad sample of the candidate’s job skills and help you get new information to balance an overly positive or overly negative opinion of the candidate.

Little kids run everywhere they go. Ever notice that? They don’t just move in a dignified way from room to room like we do.
