Likely you have clients who have hired seemingly well-credentialed individuals only to discover that they did not fit with their organization’s Culture or team. As a result, neither the individual nor the hiring manager was satisfied.
If Emotional Intelligence is as important as we claim, how can we use that information to identify the best candidate and support their development once they are hired? This session will outline a practical approach for using the EQ-i2.0 for this purpose and demonstrate how such a process can be handled professionally, ethically, and creatively. This presentation will address such issues as,
- The do’s and don’ts of identifying candidates through instrumentation.
- Handling the confidentiality of information.
- Providing the candidates’ data to the hiring party.
- Making recommendations.
- Our success in finding just the right person.
- Guidelines for professional and ethical implementation.
Bill will use real life examples to demonstrate how to match organizational Culture with the aspects of a candidate’s EI as captured by the EQ-i2.0. While Executive Strategies International (ESI) specializes in selecting senior managers and C-Suite executives, and uses exclusively the EQ-i2.0 LEADERSHIP Report, their process is equally applicable to the EQ-i2.0 Workplace Report and hiring at any level.
