Ready...Aim...Hire: Just Because 
Your Competition Hires This Way, 
Doesn't Mean You Should

Wednesday, August 24th from 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM    

Session Code: BMG14

Location: B303 (located in Building B - Level 3)

Presented by:  The Metiss Group

Speakers: Cyndi Gave, President: The Metiss Group

The Metiss Group will facilitate a fast paced, interactive session to introduce processes and techniques to improve the likelihood of hiring GREAT performers and understanding how new hires can work better with you and your team.

During the session you’ll take on the role of Chairman for your company and are tasked with hiring a CEO. Your challenge will be to define what you need, evaluate three qualified candidates, and make the hire. The three incredibly successful candidates are:

• Donald – a media and real estate leader;
• Bill – a high tech leader;
• Yourself – your company’s current leader.

We will interactively demonstrate proven techniques for determining the best hire, including:

• Specific job definition;
• Candidate selection criteria;
• Behavior-based candidate screening;
• Candidate comparison analysis.

During the session not only will you learn a powerful selection process, you’ll learn how your unique behaviors, motivators, and competencies can be leveraged for your success. Additionally, you’ll better understand your team members and how to interact with them more effectively. Although the science is in the process, the power is in the tools. To properly compare yourself to Bill and Donald, you’ll need to take a complimentary executive candidate assessment prior to the session to better understand how assessment tools can be used during the selection process. Bring your assessment results with you to the session and we will show you compare to two business icons.
