    Highly valued workshops – Leadership skills at interview
    A very enthusiastic response was had from FMLM members following the two interactive workshops on Demonstrating Leadership Skills at Interview and Assessing leadership skills and values at interview
    run by Dearden Search and Selection on 25th August.

    Delegates said they valued the opportunity to learn and practice skills in this ‘very interactive and well structured session’. Having lots of facilitators was key to the success.

    Top learning points included understanding and practicing how to appropriately structure the ‘Give an example of’ type of questions, with ‘Great practice questions’. Equally important was learning the importance of developing self-awareness, good interview preparation techniques and the significance of non-verbal communication and practicing all these skills.

    The guides, which form part of the workshop, were highly valued with one delegate saying they are ‘worth their weight in gold!’
