Here's a Killer 'Question' When Conducting an Interview

The Killer Question
 
Here’s a killer “question” when conducting an interview.

Say to the candidate: “Tell me about your best boss…”
(strictly speaking, an invitation not a question, I know).

In answering, the candidate may think they’re telling you about their best boss.

 
In reality, of course, they’re telling you everything about THEMSELVES.

What they value most.

How they like to work.

What makes them tick.

Hats off to former hostage negotiator and good friend, , for introducing me to this #communication idea. 10 years on, I still remember and use it!

Working with Simon really changed both my work and my academic life... building and inspiring confidence in speaking publicly as well as understanding how to build a message to deliver. Be that a business powerpoint presentation or an academic argument in a multi thousand word document.

I would recommend Simon to any individual looking to grow their skills and confidence...
