Though this video is about 54 min long. The speaker is from Boeing. The initial part is about resume writing. The section on behavioral interview  starts at about 20 minutes and goes on for 17 minutes. She explains the concept, what the interviewers look for, how to answer etc very well. Then she takes a few questions and comes back to it for about 5 minutes between 43 - 48 minutes.

What is Coaching? | Classroom Coaches

What is Coaching? | Classroom Coaches | Leadership | Scoop.it

What is Coaching?

Over 2,400 years ago, at the height of the Athenian enlightenment, Socrates asserted that teachers should help students to uncover information for themselves. This was a radical departure from the traditional approach of the time, which thought of students as empty vessels and of teachers as dispensers of information. The Socratic philosophy of teaching set the stage for coaching, which aims to unlock and increase potential and learning.

Whether a coach is helping a teacher improve, or a teacher is using the same skills with students in the classroom, coaching allows for a constructionist theory of education. This allows for the individuals to create strategies for themselves.

The Goal of Coaching

Coaching is concerned with long-term skill development rather than with quick fixes or temporary understanding. We define coaches as those who offer inspiration, guidance, training, and modeling, and who enhance others’ abilities through motivation and support (Longenecker & Pinkel, 1997). The goal of a coach is to increase achievement by helping someone:

- Find their inner strengths and passions in order to nurture self-worth and identity, - Have a voice in their own learning and negotiate collectively with the instructor to create the goals and objectives, - Passionately engage in talking content to increase memory retention and fuel motivation to learn, and, - Use their inner talents to bring their work to the highest level of scholarship attainable.

Coaching and Mentoring: They Both Have a Part to Play in Development

Coaching and Mentoring: They Both Have a Part to Play in Development | Leadership | Scoop.it
I was asked by a client what the difference was between coaching and mentoring, especially as they tend to be used in the same breath. Good question I thought and made me think about my interpretation of these processes. Whilst there are similarities between coaching and mentoring, the differences can be more significant than at first seen. Some organizations have found mentoring to be less expensive and provide a greater business impact than the higher profile coaching process that is talked a lot about in many organizations.

8 Personality Types And How To Manage Them

8 Personality Types And How To Manage Them | Leadership | Scoop.it

Every team is made up of different personality types, and some demand more time and attention from the leaders who manage them than others. As every team leader knows, there’s no hard and fast management strategy that fits every kind of employee. Short of that, though, there's a rough framework managers can use to decide how to direct their energy toward getting the most out of all the personalities on their teams. Here’s a quick rundown of eight of the most common personality types and how to manage each one.

I found it to tell me what I already know, but in a more in-depth way than I had previously imagined.

3 Situations Where Leaders Should Keep Their Mouths Shut

3 Situations Where Leaders Should Keep Their Mouths Shut | Leadership | Scoop.it

Being a leader can be a daunting task. Everyone on the team expects you to know the answer, and rarely can you go an entire day without having to make a critical decision. The toughest part is learning when to speak up, and when you to delegate to someone else. Finding the perfect balance is one of the toughest parts of leadership.


For most first-time leaders, it seems that the default is to make a decision even if you don't know the answer. Unfortunately, when leaders approach the problem this way, it can lead to serious consequences. From my own experience, I've learned one of the most important parts of being a great leader is knowing when to keep your mouth shut. Below, I'll highlight three situations where as the leader you should not speak up, but shut up instead. Use these tips to keep your sanity, hold your team together, and be an effective leader.

The toughest part of leadership is learning when to speak up, and when you to delegate to someone else.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, September 9, 2015 4:55 AM

Yes, these are situations many of those in leadership positions will have faced, like for example having to lend a shoulder for someone to weep on, having to listen to intimate details about marital dischord, or even having to listen to someone ranting at you and even calling you names. However, come what may, people in leadership positions should never share these confidences with others otherwise the consequences can be fatal! Thus if the leader has to be a punching bag, then it would be better for him or her to keep the mouth shut!

Behavior Based Interview Questions - Tip

Behavioral based interviewing is interviewing based on discovering how the interviewee acted in specific employment-related situations. The logic is that how you behaved in the past will predict how you will behave in the future i.e. past performance predicts future performance.

Traditional Interview vs. Behavioral Interview

In a behavioral interview, an employer has decided what skills are needed in the person they hire and will ask questions to find out if the candidate has those skills. Instead of asking how you would behave, they will ask how you did behave. The interviewer will want to know how you handled a situation, instead of what you might do in the future.

Questions in a Behavioral Interview

Behavioral interview questions will be more pointed, more probing and more specific than traditional interview questions:

Give an example of an occasion when you used logic to solve a problem.Give an example of a goal you reached and tell me how you achieved it.Describe a decision you made that was unpopular and how you handled implementing it.Have you gone above and beyond the call of duty? If so, how?What do you do when your schedule is interrupted? Give an example of how you handle it.Have you had to convince a team to work on a project they weren't thrilled about? How did you do it?Have you handled a difficult situation with a co-worker? How?Tell me about how you worked effectively under pressure.

Managing people is not easy. It takes patience and practice. It takes experience and patience. It takes insight, foresight, hindsight, and of course patience. Many people think that managing people is easy, right up to the time they actually have to manage people. Actually, anyone can manage people. But if you want to manage people well, avoid turnover, increase productivity, improve morale, and gain trust and respect, well, that’s another story. You will never become the perfect manager.
