Precision Interviewing

Don’t just learn about interviewing — activate new hiring behaviour that helps recruiting managers discover top-tier talent in every interview and hire people that will drive the business forward!

Every new hire changes the DNA of the organisation by either adding or damaging value.

New hires change your business in some way or another

For better or worse, each new person your business hires adds or takes away value. Sometimes the value they add is great and sometimes it’s small; sometimes the value recruits take away is minor and can be remedied over time; sometimes it is massively destructive.

The hiring interview, overseen by hiring managers and HR team members, serves as the principal conduit for talent acquisition within your organisation. It strategically identifies individuals poised to contribute significant value while effectively screening out candidates whose potential impact may be detrimental.

Solving a 30-Year old recruitment problem

For 30+ years the recruitment interviewing process has focused on past performance as a predictor of future performance.

This competency-based approach works, but it leaves gaps. People grow and change and who they have potential to be, can be different from who they were. This is particularly true for talented, adaptable people.

The Precision Interview, Strengths-Based Approach incorporates traditional competency-based selection with an exciting strengths-based approach to understanding the candidate’s potential to fit (competencies) and thrive (strengths).

Strengths-based interview questions delve into candidates’ intrinsic motivations, values, and potential for growth – competency-based questions focus on specific skills, past experiences, and established competencies. Both offer insight into the candidate’s suitability for a role, but strengths-based interviews can provide a richer view of an individual’s potential to fit your organisations culture and their potential for long-term success.
