How Motivation-Based Interviewing Positively Impacts Quality of Hire

2014 Talent Management Conference
Workplace Application: Learn about this powerful interviewing method and how it can be used to improve your organization's quality-of-hire.

Motivation-based interviewing (MBI) is called the “game changing” interview because it goes beyond skill assessment and looks at ALL three of the components high achievers share in common: skill, attitude and passion. Attitude, considered the #1 predictor of future success, along with passion, join forces to create motivation. Motivation, being different from skills, must be assessed correctly for high achievers to be hired. Quinn will help you understand exactly what “attitude” is and the significant role it plays in job performance and achievement. Learn the powerful natural self-motivator of “passion” and why it must be hired if you want self-motivated employees. You will learn the three MBI steps required for improving quality-of-hire as well as why MBI is more effective than traditional behavior-based interviewing for hiring high achievers.
