SELECTING WINNERS WORKSHOP AGENDA
This one-day workshop is broken into seven modules. Each module uses a variety of learning techniques. First, your team hears the information, then sees a demonstration and finally practices to complete the learning process.
The seven Modules are:
Creating Success In Advance Profiles
Interview Preparation/Interview Questions)
SYNOPSIS OF THE SELECTING WINNERS WORKSHOP MODULES
Module Summary – We begin by showing your team the importance of having a process to interview and choose people. They learn the purpose of the selection process is to “Predict the Success” of candidates. They are presented with a model for the entire hiring process. Also, they learn to avoid common hiring and process problems that are inevitable when choosing people (and we destroy most of the common myths that surround the hiring process). Finally, your team learns how to use “the best predictor of success” as their personal guide throughout the process.
Developing the Success In Advance Profile
Module Summary – Your team learns to create a Success Profile (a picture of the successful person). They are shown how the Success Profile drives the entire selection process. Working with other team members, they identify the expectations (exactly what the person needs to do to succeed) for the target position. Next, they work on translating those expectations into the knowledge, skills and abilities (the requirements) necessary to accomplish the expectations. The two exercises result in a clear picture of the person who will succeed on their job (Success Profile). Throughout the workshop, your team is working on real jobs from your company. They only use real examples and avoid any “generic” case studies.
Module Summary –The key message in this module is that recruiting is a strategic activity instead of an event. Your team learns how to develop an effective, cost-efficient recruitment strategy – and how to put the strategy into practice. They learn how to identify as many new and innovative recruiting sources as possible. And, they learn where not to waste time and energy.
In addition, your team learns a variety of skills, tools and techniques to get from raw candidates to the best of the bunch. They will leave knowing how to wisely invest their time by thoroughly screening resumes and conducting effective phone screens and interviews.
Module Summary – Your team will leave with the most important skill related to hiring people … knowing how to create effective interview questions. They get a proven, easy to implement model for creating the absolute best interview questions. They learn exactly what constitutes an effective question and how to create it. They also learn what types of questions to avoid. They practice developing questions in a number of exercises from resumes and learn exactly how to probe for details. Most importantly, your team leaves with all confusion about interview questions removed.
Module Summary – The face-to-face interview is where your team will “put it all together”. They learn how to manage the entire meeting with the candidate from the opening to the close. Each step is clearly explained with videos examples to eliminate any confusion. Particular attention is paid to problem issues (candidates talking too much, too little, lying, etc.) and how they can be resolved. Also, your team learns to start the marketing and sales process for the great candidates.
Module Summary – Making great hiring decisions requires large quantities of credible data. Most comes from the face-to-face interview. To supplement that interview data, your team learns how to use second interviews, multiple interviews, and reference and background checks to make even better hiring decisions. All of the mysteries associated with these follow-up activities are obliterated so your Managers can get the data they need.
Module Summary – Making the hiring decision is often the hardest part of the process. And, most managers end up using all kinds of subjective criteria. With Selecting Winners we reverse this process. Your team learns how to evaluate the volumes of objective data gathered during all the previous steps. And, they will know exactly how to measure the data against the Success Profile. They will make confident decisions using a simple matrix without relying on any complex formulas or calculations.
Your management team will walk out of the workshop having eliminated all the fear, uncertainty and doubt normally woven throughout the hiring process.
