Brain-based Behavioural Interview Guide – Caliber Leadership Systems

Brain-based Behavioural Interview Guide

Using the MBTI® and Striving Styles® Personality System with Behavioural Interviewing

The Brain-based Behavioural Interview Guide helps you to select questions for behavioural interviewing with candidates during the selection process based on how the candidate’s brain is hard wired so that you can hone in on the more challenging aspects for the candidate. It includes a section for each of the 16 personality types including general information about their best work environment, their work style as well as satisfiers and dissatisfiers of their predominant psychological need that drivers their behaviour. The questions included in each section are focused on those areas that are particular challenges for each of the Personality Types which you can choose from to create your specific interview structure. The Guide also includes a full list of all the behavioural questions sorted by typical competencies, such as Teamwork, Power & Authority, Relationships Management, instead of by Type.

 

Behavioural interviewing has become a common practice in candidate selection, as we have come to accept that past behaviour is the best predictor of future performance in similar circumstances. However, this type of questioning can be challenging for some interviewers as they delve into the personality, emotional intelligence, self-awareness and self-management, as well as the interpersonal relationship effectiveness of the candidate.

Brain-based behavioural interviewing allows interviewers to go a step further, taking into account the unique differences in personality and how the brain is hard-wired to function. This provides greater insight into the mechanics of the candidate’s behavioural motivators, and their intrinsic need satisfiers and dissatisfiers. For employers, this provides an opportunity to drill deeper into aligning candidates with the job and cultural norms of the organization.

Our Brain-based Behavioural Interview Guide helps you to select questions for behavioural interviewing with candidates during the selection process. There is a section for each of the 16 personality types (based on the MBTI®) which includes general information general information about their best work environment, their work style as well as satisfiers and dissatisfiers of their predominant psychological need that drivers their behaviour. The questions included in each section are focused on those areas that are particular challenges for each of the Personality Types which you can choose from to create your specific interview structure.

The Guide also includes a full list of all the behavioural questions sorted by typical competencies, such as Teamwork, Power & Authority, Relationships Management, instead of by Type. Regardless of which way you use the Guide, the questions are selected from the Brain-based Behavioural Interview Guide to determine:

– level of self-awareness and self-management

– how they handle situations that calls on them to use their lesser preferred brain functions

– whether the candidate is aware of his/her blind spots

– to what extent they have worked on developing their less preferred brain functions

– how they respond during stress, and whether they are aware of changes in their behaviour

– how the candidate deals with authority

 

The Guide is meant to be used in conjunction with your Candidate Selection Process and is not meant to be the only tool used when selecting a candidate for a role.
