Course Overview:

One can always learn to speak the right thing at the right place however when it comes to be that person, no one can really teach you to “walk the talk”. Many people lose control in pressure situations. One must practice keeping calm in extremely difficult circumstances. People can excel in reading a script but when asked an out of the box question the response reveals fabrication.

It is particularly important for an organisation to hire the right fit for the competencies required for the business. Behaviour-based interviews extract the best response to evaluate the skill, knowledge, versus the views of the candidates.
