Organizations always look to avoid the wasted efforts and high costs, which is generally estimated as 25—200 percent of annual salary, associated with making a "bad hire." To ensure they hire or promote the right person for the job, organizations need a predictive and performance-based employee selection process that links directly to business strategy.

Leading for Performance: Interviewing for Selection (LFP-IFS) is structured around the Behavioral Interview Process. This model provides the knowledge, tools, and confidence managers need to prepare for, conduct, and evaluate behavioral interviews.

The program emphasizes self-sufficiency as participants learn how to develop their own interview questions and objective, fair evaluation criteria.
