What's In It
When to Hire
Effective Managers DON’T hire immediately necessarily. The smart move is to evaluate productivity and workloads. Hiring shouldn’t be knee-jerk fast.
How To Create Questions
Great hiring starts with analytical thinking about the role and behaviors required for success in it. We’ll tell you how to think it through, and how to write the questions you’ll ask.
How to Decide
The reason we interview is to make effective hiring decisions. Learn how to decide whether to offer or not, and teach your team how to interview and hire, too.
How to Make an Offer
Learn all the components of an effective offer and how to make one that increases your chances of an acceptance.
