The Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Interview:  Finding Candidates with High EQ



Businesses are placing greater emphasis on soft skills, your clients are looking for candidates who have more than just technical skills.   What's important is how recruiters implement an understanding of EQ to improve the quality of the candidate; regardless of role.

Join this short workshop where Alison Lalieu will facilitate the learnable and measurable skills of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) that will make the difference in selecting the ideal candidate.         

According to World Economic Forum, five yeasrs from now over one-tirs of skills (35%) that are considered important in today's workforce will have changed.  What is certain is recruiters will need to align candidate skillsets to keep pace.  Sought after candidates with high EQ are emotionally intelligent emerging leaders and are more effective at building relationships with employees and customers. They make better decisions, cope well with change and motivate their peers through creating safe, trusting cultures. They inspire through the way that they align their values with their purpose, and prioritize the wellbeing of themselves.

All we know about the future of jobs is that it’s an uncertain environment, and change will be the norm.  It makes sense to ask questions in the hiring process to increase the chances of selecting an emotionally intelligent talented candidate over one who just ticks all the technical boxes.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discover key questions you can ask in an interview that increase your chances of hiring an emotionally intelligent candidate

Who Should Attend:

  • Recruitment Consultants & Professionals
  • HR Business Partners
  • Emerging Leaders
  • Director's
  • Those seeking to sharpen their hiring skills
