    Presentation Topic: 

    Check Your Motives at the Door

    Kate Shockey, Director of HR And Talent Acquisition
    Engineered Tax Services, Inc.

    Have you ever seen an employee’s eyes glaze over? Most HR staff have had this experience. 

    You have a face-to-face meeting, you’ve prepared your talking points,thoughtfully considered questions, identified points of commonality, in short - you were ready. Suddenly you notice the discussion seems to miss its mark completely. That’s when the person’s eyes start to glaze over.

    Guess what, you may have started the process with faulty assumptions. Your own assumptions. Or worse yet - the assumptions of others. And that’s exactly the problem.

    In this session you will learn how to:

    • Clear your prior biases so you can focus on important outliers.
    • Seek to find the prospects own assumptions.
    • Approach situations without preconceived ideas about why.
    • Ask the right questions for “fact-finding” before the meeting.
    • Differentiate fact from fiction.
    • Uncover the other persons motives.

    HR seeks to solve problems and keep good employees in play.  Sometimes coaching is necessary. Make sure you have checked your own assumptions at the door and learn how to truly have a discussion that leads to employment continuance. Today’s employment market and the high cost of turnover demands a “we can work it out”
    Human Resources team.
