Details & Time Frame
Hiring for Attitude: Recruiting and Selecting People with Tremendous Skills and Superb Attitude
Leadership IQ researched 20,000 new hires and learned that 46% of them failed within 18 months. But even more surprising than the failure rate was that when new hires failed, 89% of the time it was for attitudinal reasons. Only 11% of the time it was for a lack of skill.

Technical competence remains the most popular subject of interviews because it’s easy to assess. But it’s a lousy predictor of whether a newly hired employee will succeed or fail in your unique organization. Attitude is the factor that successful organizations like Google, Apple, Southwest Airlines and the Ritz-Carlton hire for, and attitude is what your organization should be hiring for.

Based on Leadership IQ’s top-rated research and CEO Mark Murphy’s bestselling book, Hiring for Attitude will teach you some of today’s cutting-edge hiring practices that reveal if candidates have the right attitude to fit your culture.

Just a few of the things you’ll learn by attending Hiring for Attitude:

•       One question to reliably assess a candidate’s “coachability” and what their last boss really thought of them (coachability is the #1 reason new hires fail)
•       Key research results from Leadership IQ’s hiring studies including the results of our work with textual analysis that reveals if someone is a high or low performer just by the pronouns and verbs they use during the interview
•       6 words that make behavioral interview questions ineffective
•       One sentence to say when you think candidates are lying to you
•       2 quick tests to discover the attitudinal characteristics your organization must include in interviews
•       Why interviewers should never ask “tell me about yourself” or “what are you strengths and weaknesses?”
•       One question that reveals if somebody goes “above and beyond”
You’ll also learn how today’s best companies are recruiting for attitude including how to write pitches that attract high performers and repel low performers. You’ll find out how top organizations are building talent pipelines of candidates with the right attitude, and how they are using Hiring for Attitude to create even higher engagement among existing employees.
