The Key to Talent Acquisition Success Is Being Consciously Curious!

2021 Talent Conference & Expo
Workplace Application: Attendees will learn how to leverage conscious curiosity in order to be more effective in advising and consulting with their stakeholders.

The function of talent acquisition and recruiting requires HR pros to understand so many different parts of businesses and organizations. We often have to be a chameleon weaving in and out of different teams, serving different departments and divisions, and we need to understand what makes them all successful (or not successful). The best HR pros have learned that the only way for us to be successful is to be consciously curious—meaning we are self-motivated to learn more deeply about how ours and other businesses and organizations actually work and thrive. Can you answer the question: How does my organization make (or lose) money? If you cannot, then most likely you are not focused on self-learning. Learn how to turn on the skill of being consciously curious and how to apply this to your everyday life as a consultative HR professional.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the skill of self-motivated curiosity: what it is in the world of business and organizations, and how it can help gain credibility and improve candidate assessment.
  • Learn how to become an expert in the commercial language of your organization and your industry by clearly understanding how organizations make (or lose) money.
  • Discover how being consciously curious can help build and manage relationships with all key stakeholders: hiring managers, candidates, employees and leaders.
