    Role Alignment
    The estimated cost of a poor hire runs from three to seven times a person’s salary, especially in sales or management. With stiff competition, costs rising and margins shrinking, no company can afford $300,000 or more per bad hire. 

    Your workforce is your fuel for your business engine.

    Imagine how your business could perform if you were empowered to create a conscious, aligned workforce that produced extraordinary results.  

    Comprehensive Position Requirement  (CPR)

    Conscious alignment of people requires beginning the employment relationship with the big vision in mind. 

    The CPR is an innovative and powerful methodology for aligning the person in the role with the reason the role exists, and the required business outcomes. Let’s face it, most if not all job descriptions are ineffective and outdated. Performance requirements in the role are often an afterthought and not discussed until a person is actually hired for the job.

    With a CPR, the role exists for a purpose. By understanding and articulating the purpose the role exists and what success looks like, it empowers you to create and bring forth high-impact hires.

    The CPR Addresses:

    • Common reasons for low performance and lack of on-the-job engagement.
    • Alignment of people and role purpose with accountability.
    • Linkage between service categories focus and intended outcomes.
    • How employee selection impacts delivery of role purpose.
    • A recipe for attracting employees who produce extraordinary results.

    Values-Based Behavioral Interviewing
    Experience the impact that effective targeted selection and values-based behavioral interviewing has on your ability to secure and retain the right people for your company and evoke genuine, productive change in the hiring process as a discerning interviewer.

    The Values-Based Behavioral Interviewing training guides you through the process of selecting relevant role-centric and values-based questions that enable you to evaluate the candidate’s competencies, and score their responses in an unbiased manner. This means you gain confidence in your ability to ask the right questions, and listen for and identify the right answers.

    Workshop Objectives:

    • Discover what drives peak performance, including motivations, ways of being, ways of thinking, and modes of interacting.
    • Design key performance indicators based on a role analysis, so you can easily identify the applicants who are best-qualified to fill open positions.
    • Gain confidence in role benchmarking, creating values-based behavioral interviewing models that target the right fit, and behavioral selection and interpretation.
    • Explore practical ways to evaluate a candidate as a whole person – far beyond what’s on the resume – so you know you’re hiring someone who fits the company culture and philosophy.
    • Learn and champion a lean recruiting model to increase your company’s efficiency in the hiring process, and gain the ability to impact and affect people at work in ways that also create positive change in their lives outside the office.

    Here is what our customers say about our Public Programs:

    “I recently attended a KeenAlignment Ignite Female Leadership retreat. The event was intense and impactful. Magi was amazing at leading a diverse group of women. The experience provided insight and new tools for my leadership toolbox. The level of engagement was extraordinary – everyone found their “inner voice” and showed that in just 2.5 days, that they were transformed into leaders. I would highly recommend KeenAlignment for workforce development.”

    Conscious Hiring helps me get to know the candidates in an incredibly valuable way. I know that they are a fit for our position in their competencies and experiences, but also that they are a fit for the organization, that they will be an asset to the team they are joining in all ways. All of the questions asked through the process have such specific purposes, they each illuminate critical aspects about our candidates that make the selection process incredibly easy. When I present final candidates to hiring managers I have confidence that we are selecting from the best of the best. The success that we have seen has built a great deal of trust in the process from the hiring managers. In our organization we want to be hiring for longevity, Conscious Hiring is the best tool to accomplish this. It is also the most successful recruitment method that I have seen or used. Thank you to Margaret and her team for sharing this tool!”

    “This is a one-of-a-kind course that I had been looking for but couldn’t find in the market of professional and personal development. It covers all aspects integral to being a woman – leadership, human development, self-care, self-expression, our feminine and masculine traits, and most importantly, a vision for living. The course is brilliantly and thoughtfully constructed. I could take it again and get another level of insights. KeenAlignment’s commitment to transforming the workplace for both men and women shines through this active and engaging course.”
