About

A selection interview is a bit like detective work. Suspects must be eliminated until the right person is found, whether from inside or outside the organization.

Even talented managers have blind spots when it comes to hiring. It's Your Choice shows managers how to recognize candidates with potential and promise.

Making the right selection choice means knowing a valuable asset has been acquired and that colleagues will be motivated by the new team member.

Its Your Choice shows that too many people get the costly decision wrong, introducing three managers who make common mistakes. It then shows the viewer how each manager learns from these mistakes.

The video introduces three all-too-familiar personalities with poor interviewing skills and shows how to avoid their typical mistakes. Ethelred the Unready (Hugh Laurie) is utterly unprepared; Ivan the Terrible (John Cleese) is all ego; Jillian the Silent (Dawn French) is afraid to confront tough questions. The three managers learn to use more effective selection techniques to make the right choice.

Ethelred the Unready is unprepared, knows little about the job or the candidate, and is constantly interrupted by colleagues as the interview progresses. It is not until he is more organized and professional that he is able to make the best choice.

Ivan the Terrible would rather trumpet his own opinions than encourage the candidate to talk. He eventually learns about asking open questions and listening to what the candidate has to say.

Gillian the Silent allows the candidate to take over. She fails to probe or voice her doubts, and realises she has to be more affirmative and specific to gain the information she needs.
