Course Reviews

  • Past Participant, Senate Of Canada Dec 6, 2019

    The information was good and well presented. However, I would have liked to go more in depth in the details. The facilitator was interesting and could have shared more information if the session was over two days. Our facilitator was knowledgeable and interactive. Really good course if you are new to HR and want to know the do and don'ts of interview process. Really good training for managers who wants to be better in the selection process of employees.

    The content was helpful and informative, and situational examples and role play helped with making the experience 'stick'.Lisa had great real life examples to share throughout the content which kept everyone engaged.This course provided a clear direction of how behavioural questions are ask, why they are helpful and how to evaluate to ensure the answers are fulsome.

    this course helped me to feel confident, that I am on the right direction in implementing the process for interviewing our candidates and the tools to use to make better questions and making the candidate comfortable coming into an interview. I really liked the facilitator's friendliness, and she made sure you understood. I liked the small group, the facilitator was able to focus on you.
