Were They Dead When We Hired Them...Or Did We Kill Them?

Why do some people who we think are going to be “rockstars” in interviews turn out to be “rocks”? Have you ever hired people that you could not wait to get on board, and a few months later…you could not get rid of them fast enough? What happened? Was it you? Was it them? Was it something else?

This workshop will leverage presentations, learning exercises, group discussion, activity debriefs, and action plans to help you answer these questions and provide practical methodologies you can deploy to ultimately improve hiring success and employee engagement, so you don’t hire dead people and don’t kill your live ones! 

Section 1: Were they dead?...Why are we lousy at hiring? This section explores the practices of hiring that most companies deploy and why we have pretty dismal success rates at predicting job performance and low satisfaction when it comes to our hires and promotions. Look beyond the “briefcase” when hiring! You will gain objective measures that will help quantify and identify what specific, measurable factors you are looking for in candidates, provide more insight into candidate-job fit models, and practical ways to ultimately increase hiring success rates.

Section 2: Did we kill them? You will gain perspective needed to develop an understanding of what drives your employees’ day-to-day behaviors. In addition to securing a firm grasp of your own management and communication styles, we will help you identify ways to understand how best to communicate with and manage direct reports.

Speaker Bio:

 

Amy Leslie is CEO of Perspective Consulting, Inc., a woman-owned management consulting firm, and a certified partner of the Predictive Index. Before starting her company, she ran business units, with P&L responsibility, for other organizations. Amy has 17 years of experience leading business development and building and managing teams in companies from small start-up firms, to very large, well established Fortune 500 companies.

She had great success as an individual contributor and a leader driving performance by inspiring others. She attributes her success in building and maintaining strong teams to self-awareness as a leader and awareness of her people. She believes employee engagement begins with “right person-right role” fit! Amy learned that her job as a leader was to tap into the individual needs and motivations of each of her employees. She discovered assessments to help her “decode” the needs of her people, and she saw her influencing power increase and her teams begin to just “click”. Amy is passionate about bringing the insight that changed her life as a leader to other businesses and teaching them to apply it. Amy is a graduate of Texas A&M University, where she studied Veterinary Medicine.
