PRACTICES LPHR 3/13 “The right people are self motivated and are intrinsically driven to succeed. These employees do not need to be tightly managed, but instead are leaders and set the example for others on your team.” -Jim Collins Typically, organizations set practices in place to hire and train for relational competence by utilizing recruitment techniques throughout the hiring and on-boarding processes. Common companies tend to hire solely based on functional expertise. Interviewing candidates based only on their functional expertise produces as much of a chance for a return on your investment as blind speed dating. Effective leaders utilize behavioral interviewing questions and scenarios to hire for relational competence. MARCH 2013 | LPRH.CO
