If you've ever scrambled around at the last minute to prepare to interview someone, and then not felt good about the results, you're like a lot of other managers we know. For some reason, even though we have all been frustrated at times by team members who aren't as good as we want them to be, we STILL under-invest in the process which could improve the quality of our team -- recruiting.
We think interviewing is a real opportunity for most managers -- it's not hard to understand, or to do it right, but we're guessing that no one's ever told you how or given you a detailed process. We're going to show you how in detail over a series of many podcasts. In this first one on interviewing, we tackle interview preparation - what questions you need to ask yourself and your team/org about hiring someone new. We're NOT going to tell you what questions to ask in the interview (yet). If you wonder why, well, give a listen. When you hear it, you'll understand.
