Targeted Selection® DDI                                                                                                              

According to Harvard Business Review, up to 50% of all executive hires, end in firing or resignation. Why? The publication suggests, success today depends increasingly on intangible competencies–like teamwork and cross-cultural literacy–rarely found on resumes, and hard to uncover in interview. Ineffective interviewing can be catastrophic. Targeted Selection® helps you identify, hire, and promote the right people.

DESCRIPTION: Whether you’re an experienced or novice interviewer, you will benefit from these techniques and will be able to use them to reduce risk in your next interview.
