Just putting the finishing touches to the interviewer's book (with Mary Hanson). We are calling the book "The First Sign of the Recovery" because you know a recovery is in the offing when someone comes out with a book about how to hire staff.
See for yourself:
Training consultant Mary Hanson and I are working on a new book for interviewers which will be published by Open Press in early 2013. More details later.
It's an old Irish proverb that sense comes with age (tagann ciall le h-aois). However, I was reminded of that recently in training where I observed participants struggling with an ice-breaker problem-solving exercise but being very frustrated by not being able to see the data put in front of them in another way. It reminded me that as we grow older we tend to stick to the first obvious solution we can think of and hang onto it like grim death. When we were young we were better at generating alternatives. Think about it.
I have been doing a series of workshops for the Marketing Institute of Ireland who have asked me to sum it all up in a brief piece of video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2HUUTT3BLk&sns=fb
I hope you find it useful.
