black belt interviewing

Interviewing for new hires is one of the most important activities for leadership. Taking into account if the new hire both fits into the existing culture, as well as brings a new outside-in flavor.

Setup for success

A great way to really test people is to put them into unexpected situations. Move the interview from the office to a coffee bar around the corner. As soon as people need to respond to unexpected context, such as people sitting next to them, waiters asking questions,… the chance of identifying a rehearsed “success story” increases.
