Book Reviews

Very informative!

I loved reading this book [HIRE with FIRE] because it talks about all the things we ignore about what is going on in the hiring process and everything that leads up to it!

Amazon Customer

Useful, thought-provoking, and fun!

As someone who has often been on both sides of the hiring managers desk–perhaps too often–I wasn’t sure which perspective would stand out to me. Thanks to the focus on relationship building, and the brilliant use of a “dating” relationship as an analogy. I was sufficiently entertained to let go of my rather prejudicial mode of analysis! Un-textbook-like and entertaining, I found myself instead comparing the steps to my own internal processes, and actually helping me identify that I did indeed have them. Useful, thought-provoking, and fun!  [HIRE with FIRE]

Hiring A Players

You want to hire A players, who are engaged and passionate about their work. But how do you know which candidate will bring these important traits to your company?

How You Hire and Who You Hire

The authors believe that creating an engaged workforce starts with how you hire and who you hire.  As they explain how to interview people through the “FIRE Interview Method,” the question of how to hire the right person for a job becomes clearer. By utilizing this hiring method and interview questions discussed in this hiring book, you will develop a more systematic approach to interviewing and hiring, limiting decisions based on gut-reaction.

The FIRE Interview Method© offers four key qualities found in A-players and how teaches you how to screen for these important traits. As a manager, your goal is to hire the right person with the key skills and abilities to perform the job well. However, it may be equally important to hire someone who is passionate about their work. Employees who are passionate, “on fire,” and engaged are typically A players, high achievers, and top performers. They can positively impact your company’s culture, potential for growth, and your bottom line.

By using the FIRE Interview Method©, you will not only hire the right people, you will also learn how to hire employees who are engaged and passionate about their work.

I first worked with Denise as a candidate getting interviewed then (in my current role) as a manager/director conducting interviews. She is fantastic in both facets. I much prefer the latter!
