Download the Show Audio Here

Show Topic:
Because 90% of hiring managers aren’t trained on how to interview, they fall prey to their implicit bias when judging candidates and making hiring decisions. Job seekers, equally as mystified by the process, follow stale advice, memorizing rote answers that aren’t true to who they are. In this episode, host CMA’s David Ciullo discusses with CEO and Author, Anna Papalia, her book: Interviewology; The New Science of Interviewing. Her book along with an interview style assessment Papalia developed, will help you determine which of four different interview styles you are and how you can dramatically improve no matter which side of the interview table you are on.

About The Guest:

Anna Papalia is the author of Interviewology: The New Science of Interviewing and a career influencer with over 1.5 million followers across social media platforms. She has consulted with Fortune 100 companies, taught at Temple University’s Fox School of Business and coached over 10,000 clients to interview better. Her groundbreaking discovery of Interview Styles revolutionized the way we teach and understand interviewing. She is also a public speaker at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and DisruptHR. She lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Show Topic:
When we view high-achieving individuals, many of us often think (or say) “what is their secret?” What is that person doing differently from so many other people in business or society who are striving to achieve goals?

While the answer is likely going to be different for everyone, there will certainly be some underlying themes. While we can focus on those themes, another important element is understanding what some of the common misconceptions are about goal obtainment and ways in which we as individuals or as coaches to team members can mindfully maneuver around snares.

In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez as she and Carla Fowler, Founder of THAXA, a boutique executive coaching firm that leverages the best ideas from performance science to help leaders around the globe, discuss the top five fallacies of goal obtainment.

Tawny and Carla will discuss that while having a dream (or a goal) is important—more is necessary to achieve it. They will also discuss some of the tips Carla provides to executives to assist them in achieving those goals while maneuvering around common fallacies.

About The Guest:
