Course Overview

These are the 5 key sections of this training material.

Try to put yourself in the shoes of your target audience. How will this training material make their lives better? How will they feel about the content? And, what pain will it take away?

Next, consider how this content will save you time.

1. Introduction to interview skills
Much of the work that goes into successful interviews is not immediately visible.

Sorting out paperwork and forms. Looking over data. Preparing interview questions. Getting other people involved.

All involve aspects that are not on display. But, which are so critical.

Add a dash of magic and help your learners to develop the interview skills needed to actively participate in a wide range of interview situations.

To make this content sparkle:

  • Explore what is an interview.
  • Discuss the main types of interviews that occur within companies.
  • Examine the different skills that are needed (e.g., questioning and listening skills).

Remember, no one is looking over your shoulder telling you exactly what you have to say. Try to see the sharing of this training content as an enjoyable task. And, nurture a sense of learning with your audience.

2. Questioning and listening skills
The use of questioning and listening skills in organizational interviews to improve learning is nothing new.

Breathe life into your delivery and:

  • Discuss active and reflective listening skills.
  • Detail various types of questioning skills.

3. The recruitment interview
Job interview skills remain the main area that people think of when they hear the word ‘interview’.

To make your delivery more vivid, use the content to explore essential skills. And, focus on job interview skills.

Next, use the content provided to explore these skills from the perspectives of both the interviewer and the candidate.

4. The grievance/discipline interview
How can an individual apply their interview skills within a grievance/discipline setting?

An important question.

To sharpen your delivery, highlight the value of shared interview skills across various types of interview settings.

5. How to handle poor performance
Lots of people learn to be successful at recruitment interviews.

But, many individuals run into difficulty applying this learning in the area of performance appraisals.

A performance appraisal interview facilitates an evaluation of an employee’s job performance against a documented set of goals. And, traditional approaches to performance appraisal focus on three main objectives.

  • First, the appraisal interview is an opportunity to provide feedback to employees on their performance.
  • Second, the appraisal interview acts as a vehicle for changing behavior towards what would be seen as more desirable by the organization.
  • And, thirdly the interview provides information for managers to help them allocate resources in the future.

Use the content to focus on how interviews can be used to handle poor performance.

For instance:

  • Goal setting.
  • Training.
  • Dissatisfactions.
  • Discipline.
  • Reorganizing.
  • Management.
  • Outside agencies.
  • The job.
  • Peer pressure.

As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak. I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal. One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials. Jeffrey L. Buller, Senior Partner at ATLAS Leadership Training

“During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Des Fitzgerald (Oak Innovation) and his courseware. I become one of his early customers. I had clients in Asia who wanted training in certain areas. Instead of searching through the net for material, I logged onto his site, found what I wanted, bought his programs, and customized them to suit my clients requirements. The process saved me much time. Later, I bought the Oak full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak grow from a small operation to what it is today. That takes dedication and focus. Because they allowed me to download updates and new versions of the courseware, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material." GK Lim President, HRD Gateway International

I've developed an alliance with Oak -- a company that has developed a wide assortment of training "modules" that you can download right now. When you download a module you own it forever and have permission to edit it, customize it (logos, etc.) and deliver the module as many times as you like. You receive a Word document, PDF, PowerPoint and comprehensive participant manual and your satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back. The modules are designed for trainers, coaches and consultants looking to increase the range of products and services they can offer their clients. Oak content is also ideal for managers and employees looking to extend their knowledge of organizational, management and employee titles.
