Video Previews

The all-time best-selling interviewing training video based on behavioural science—fully revised and updated with added emphasis on how to uncover behavioural predictors and how to make a thorough job analysis the basis for developing effective questions. It shows interviewers how to make the right hiring decisions, based on the behavior-based interviewing (BBI) strategy developed by Paul C. Green Ph.D.

Decisions related to recruiting, interviewing and hiring are critically important to any organization. The interviewing approach featured in this program is based on the premise that past behaviour is the best predictor of future performance. It demonstrates how the right kinds of questions enable the interviewer to gain specific and relevant examples of what the candidate has done, and is likely to do, in certain situations. The more an interviewer is able to locate the candidate most likely to succeed in the open position, the more likely it will be that the new hire will be retained and become a long-time asset to the organization.

More Than a Gut Feeling IV contains valuable job-related interviewing techniques that will help your organization build its best team while saving time and money. Your interviewers will refrain from judging a candidate on gut feeling and will instead know how to ask rapport-building questions, discuss the job, ask specific open-ended questions to get specific answers, probe for behavioral predictors, allow for silence when necessary, maintain control, get contrary evidence and evaluate. The program applies these techniques to common, highly relatable interviewing situations

The video follows airline passengers Ann and Will, who strike up a conversation about interviewing practices. Will has had problems hiring the “right” person because he doesn’t know what questions to ask during an interview. Ann gives specific examples of how she uses behavioral-style interviewing to avoid making conclusions based on her gut feeling. Will follows Ann’s techniques and successfully conducts his own interview!
