Hiring for Attitude

9:45 AM–10:45 AM Jan 30, 2019

Texas 4-7


46% of newly hired employees will fail within 18 months.


But contrary to popular belief, technical skills only account for 11% of why new hires fail; it's poor attitude that dominates the list - flaws which many of their managers admit were overlooked during the interview process. In this 1-hour keynote session, based on Mark's bestselling book, participants will learn…

• The 5-part interview question that reveals if people are “coachable” (and that famously asks candidates to spell the last name of their previous boss)

• 2 quick tests to discover the attitudinal characteristics that your organization MUST include in interviews

• 6 words that ruin behavioral interview questions when you’re trying to hire for attitude

• Why you should never ask “tell me about yourself” or “what are your strengths/weaknesses”

During this session, we’ll also announce ESA’s most prestigious award winner, the Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year.
