We want to help you hire better.  So through our lens of holistic operations and human behavior... this mini-course offers a more enhanced, dimensional view.

Additional Hiring Resources

Additional Resources

Here are a few hiring resources you'll want to have in your toolkit. Both are related to our smart management princple of hiring beyond the job description:


1). Emotinal Maturity - Emotional intelligence

Download EQ interview questions that can provide you clues and insights into their emotional maturity.


2). Behavior Preferences Patterns

a. Here is a download for behavioral interview questions reflecting various themes.


b. Also, you may want to consider a behavior assessment. By the way, whether you use ours and another, and you're in the U.S. and choose to use a pre-hire assessment, make sure it's EEOC compliant.


Not all are and Myers Briggs definitely is not. Here's a link to the PDA assessment we use. It's incredibly affordable and has a variety of very useful reports that are available without excessive charges. After reviewing, if it's something you'd like to explore, contact me and I'll set up a sample run through for you. 


If you choose to use the PDA, which is a global, multi-language resource, the cool part - there is behavior preference interview questions that come with it - so you can be mindful of your hiring needs related to "preferred behaviors".  (Why does that matter?.. read this article natural vs needed.)
