A survey by CareerBuilder found that 69 percent of organizations have been adversely affected by a bad hire in the past year. A bad hire was considered someone with any of the following issues: poor performance, failure to get along with others, negative attitude, attendance problems, and complaints from others. The consequences include lost productivity, time required to hire and train another person, drag on morale throughout the department or organization, and legal issues.
A survey by Robert Half Finance & Accounting found that poor performance was the number one reason that resulted in a failed hire. A poor skills match was the second most-cited reason. In addition, failed hires result from a “culture clash,” where the new hire doesn’t fit in with the culture. Behavioral interviewing is an evidence-based approach for ensuring you hire the right person for the job, effectively minimizing all of these potential problems.
Part one of this workshop will increase your ability to identify general competencies and translate them into performance criteria and recognize the characteristics of and effectively develop behavioral-based questions. Also, participants will learn to identify the elements to look for in candidates’ answers to behavioral-based questions and how to follow a structured method for evaluating candidates objectively.
Many schools have some sort of goal-setting plan or stated expectations, and many leaders do some sort of coaching. However, when the situation gets sticky with staff or teachers not performing up to established goals, many administrators become uncertain how to handle the situation effectively. Choosing to engage in a shouting match or ignoring the situation may be natural responses but not the most effective ones.
Part two of this workshop will help leaders recognize performance problems and give them skills to address the problem effectively. As a result, you will be able to recognize problems and address them appropriately, determine why standards aren’t being met, generate buy-in to meet performance standards, and recognize and celebrate successes.
