  • Why 89% of hiring failures come from ATTITUDE not SKILLS
  • 2 quick tests to discover the attitudes that your organization MUST include in interviews
  • Why you should never ask “tell me about yourself” or “what are your strengths/weaknesses”
  • 6 words that ruin behavioral interview questions when you’re trying to hire for attitude
  • Why most hiring managers ask way too many questions (and learn how many questions you SHOULD ask)
  • 4-part interview question that reveals if people are coachable and what their last boss really thought about them
  • New textual science that shows you how candidates’ pronouns, verb tenses, and adverbs reveal if they’re a high or low performer
  • Specific Interview Questions to reveal whether candidates are RESILIENT, OPTIMISTIC, CUSTOMER-FOCUSED, and MORE

The Baltimore Chapter's best-attended event was when we had New York Times bestselling author, Mark Murphy, speak about his book Hiring For Attitude! It was a huge success and we got rave reviews from everyone in attendance. Mark delivers so much value and immediate takeaways… it's clear why Hiring For Attitude is such a famous book.  Every EO chapter should have him teach Hiring For Attitude; your members will feel an immediate impact on their ability to grow and scale by learning how to hire amazing people (and avoid the terrible ones)!
