Attitude accounts for 89 percent of hiring failures. So how do you assess a candidate’s attitude (including coachability, emotional intelligence, motivation, and temperament)?

Based on the bestselling book, Hiring for Attitude, featured in Forbes, Fast Company, & CNBC, this webinar will show you the cutting-edge hiring practices that reveal if candidates have the right attitude to fit your culture. You’ll also learn the one question to assess “coachability.” And you’ll receive tools such as the textual research, which reveals if someone is a high or low performer just by the pronouns and verbs he or she uses.

By attending the Hiring For Attitude webinar, you’ll learn:
• why most hiring managers ask too many questions—learn how many questions to ask during an interview and which questions you should never ask
• how to ensure your interview questions help you assess attitude—including six words to avoid and how to adjust for team interviews
• the five-part interview question that reveals if people are “coachable”
• what to say when you think the candidate is lying to you
• the one question that reveals if somebody goes above and beyond.
