"Every harried interviewer knows the danger of throwing out vague questions to a potential employee. You get canned answers in response - and the result can be a disastrous hiring decision. Now there's a quick way to find out what really makes a candidate tick. Presented in a handy question-and-answer format, this new book supplies 96 probing interview questions, plus helpful tips on interpreting the responses. It details how to: elicit spontaneous, truthful responses; watch out for red flags that predict subpar performance; solicit meaningful information from reference checking; and hire people that best fit the organization's needs. With questions covering 17 topics and all types of job openings, the book serves as both a ready reference for managers and a refresher course for seasoned human resources personnel."

Birth, death, and conflict three things you truly can’t avoid. Whether it’s big or small, conflict eats into productivity and makes people feel stuck. Yet solutions exist for even the toughest situations with the most intractable people. The answer lies in better communication not just using different words, but rather learning to think differently. I Hear You supplies proven techniques for stepping outside one’s point of view and seeing things from other perspectives. Sample dialogues show how this shift in thinking leads to better conversations and greatly improved outcomes. Readers learn how to: Tell the other person’s story the cornerstone of real engagement Look from the outside in and see themselves as others do Recognize the role systemic factors play and transform a conflict into a shared challenge Overcome the defense mechanisms that derail dialogue For anyone trying to negotiate a difficult situation with a boss, colleague, employee, or client, I Hear You changes opposition into understanding and mere talk into real trust.
