Motivation-Based Interviewing

Interviewer Training for Hiring High Performers

Motivation-Based Interviewing is the only interviewing method that enables you to assess the three components common to all high performers.  Most interviewing methods, and interviewers, focus on assessing an applicant's level of skill.  This results in a one-dimensional picture and an ineffective way to select the best.  "Skill" simply means a person can do the job - it doesn't mean they will do the job better than anyone else.
