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!

The school is at the start of an ambitious and exciting journey. You have helped us set the standard for the remainder of the year and further ahead. I hope you will return to the school in the future and inspire subsequent cohorts of MPP students.
