During interviews, candidates often give rehearsed responses. Try these techniques to probe past their canned answers.
1. On-the-spot interview coaching is a simple way to get your candidate to open up and answer your questions more thoroughly. Give the person a coaching directive, such as “Let’s change the question. How would your staff describe your leadership style?” This strategy enables you to assess whether the candidate is receptive to feedback and whether they can integrate that feedback into the rest of the interview.
2. If you want to understand a candidate’s social capability in high-stress situations, try group interviews, which naturally create strain in social dynamics. This will help you determine who can withstand pressure and stands out as a leader.
These techniques will help you find stronger employees who are better suited for your organization.
