based Interview

Get to the heart of what candidates would bring to your organisation with the Strengths-based Interview, the interview approach that:

  • Engages and involves interviewers and candidates in a rich, energising and insightful dialogue.
  • Assesses candidates’ strengths – accurately, reliably and effectively.
  • Uses rapid fire questions with only limited probes to put the focus back on the candidate.
  • Assesses for energy and motivation, as well as performance and use.
  • Is tailored to meet the time available – from interviews as short as 20 minutes.
  • Can be delivered via telephone, video interview or face-to-face.
