The most important decision an HR executive can likely make is who to welcome into their company, or promote into a new role.  The person they choose today can help drive the organization forward, or drive trusted employees out of the organization.  Choosing the candidate with the right skill set, personality and culture fit often takes time, patience, dedicated resources and a strategic approach.  Arguably the most important resources within the hiring process are the candidate interviews.  These interviews provide hiring executives the opportunities to gather intelligence about each prospective employee, and sell the best candidate on the opportunity to join their team.  Unfortunately candidate interviews are often under-utilized and contribute to hiring lesser candidates while better candidates move on to work for competitive organizations.


Michael Reddington leveraged his experience in the interview room when he created the Disciplined Listening Method to provide executives with the advantages they need to accurately evaluate communication, improve their questioning skills and quickly connect with and influence their counterparts.  The Disciplined Listening Method integrates current business communication research and best practices with the key components of four non-confrontational interview and interrogation techniques to instill the skills necessary to activate the truth.


Through a combination of interactive discussions and video reviews attendees will walk away with new skills and perspectives for reducing resistance, increasing commitment and obtaining the crucial information necessary to support their hiring decisions including how to:

  • Avoid the most common interviewer mistakes
