The program includes three concise learning modules:
Research clearly shows that adult learners tune out when subjected to long, content-heavy training events. Adults just can’t sit for extended periods absorbing training material – especially when they already have a long list of other responsibilities to worry about. What do they want? Chunks. The research says they’ll engage in training and remember it if it's delivered in short segments that focus on ONE thing, not three, or four or five.
That's why Hiring Smart is made up of three short modules (each right around 10 minutes) that focus on a single aspect of hiring. Each is concise and delivers a highly-potent dose of learning.
Here's a summary of what you'll get in the three modules:
How to Smoke Out Impostors in Job Interviews
The cost of a bad hire is huge. Most obvious are the hard losses – the ads, the interviews, the training, the lost productivity, etc. Not so obvious is the damage you do to your credibility as a leader when you repeatedly make hiring mistakes. This program will show you how to “smoke out” the impostors who look good on paper and know how to interview, but won’t get the job done. You’ll learn the most dangerous attitude a manager can bring to an interview with a job candidate, the preparation oversight that gives Impostors an opening, and how to ask questions that will expose Impostors every time.

How to Avoid Hiring Lawsuits: The Bias-Free Questioning Model
As a hiring manager you need to dig to learn all you can about a candidate. Unfortunately, the more you learn about a person, the higher your risk of provoking a discrimination lawsuit. So how do you learn what you need to know about a potential hire without exposing yourself to legal risk? In this program you will learn: The “Bias-Free Questioning Model”; what questions in job interviews could cause a lawsuit in The Big Six areas of discrimination (Disability, Age, Gender, National Origin, Race and Religion); and why job descriptions are key to reducing your legal exposure in the hiring process.

The 'Self-Check' Technique for Revealing Unconscious Bias
Nobody likes to admit it, but we all have biases, at least to some degree. We can't help it. Our brains are hard-wired to use past experience and preconceptions to help us make decisions. That's why it's not uncommon for hiring managers to act on unconscious bias, thinking that, for example, old people can't learn new things or good-looking people must be smart. Unfortunately, acting on those biases - even those we're unaware of - can lead to unfair hiring practices and potential lawsuits. In this program, you'll discover how to use the Self-Check Technique for unconscious bias. You will learn why unconscious bias is the leading cause of hiring discrimination lawsuits and what you can do to prevent them. (Length - 9:00)
