Effective communication can increase your talent acquisition team’s performance. Interpersonal communications are at the core of everything your team does - working with hiring managers, persuading candidates, partnering with HR, negotiating with vendors. You need to adjust your communication style and approach based on the situation and, most importantly, the specific person you are communicating with.
It is a natural tendency to communicate in the most effective style to you vs. the style that is most effective with the other person. At HireClix, we use the DISC assessment to understand our own styles and identify the styles of our colleagues, clients, and partners. By understanding the styles of others, we can adjust our communication approach to improve effectiveness and understanding.
