Synopsis of Workshops

HIRING FOR PROFIT - THE INTEGRITY INTERVIEW SYSTEM

With our unique interviewing technique, you can consistently hire productive employees and place them in the right positions. This approach will reduce selection time and cost while increasing the quality of information available to make hiring decisions. The hiring decision boils down to whether or not you have the time, resources, and desire to develop an applicant into the type of employee you need. By accurately predicting an applicant's compatibility with your organization, you can also decrease turnover. The interview is legal and non-intrusive. Applicants leave feeling good about themselves and your organization - even when they didn't get the job they wanted!

BUILDING EFFECTIVE RELATIONSHIPS & TEAMS

Human behavior is not random; observed over time, it is fairly consistent. This session trains participants to identify and deal with behavior patterns related to personality. People tend to be most comfortable when around others whose personalities are similar to their own, but the workplace is diverse. Managers and employees can reduce stress and increase effectiveness by using a basic understanding of personality differences. The key is being able to predict another person's reactions in a given situation. As we observe and grow to understand others, we also begin to better understand ourselves. Self-knowledge expands emotional control and our ability to choose effective strategies when interacting with others. This technique uses practical applications of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

SECURING ADMISSIONS WITH PERSONALITY TYPING

Carter & Associates developed this technique for using personality typing in interviews to assist investigators communicate more effectively with victims, witnesses and suspects. Psychology provides the basis. Human behavior is not random. When observed over time, individual behavior appears fairly consistent. Science defines patterns that describe and predict behavior as personality type.

All of us tend to identify and feel most comfortable with people who have personalities like ours. Understanding personality can help us to be effective with people whose personalities are different.

Interviewers who understand personality and type behavior can communicate with subjects as individuals. Subjects respond by providing providing better information. Better communication, established early in the interview, leads to more significant admissions. This technique uses practical applications of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

PRACTICAL SITUATION

A 4 month old boy is DOA at a local hospital. The coroner initially rules it a homicide. Based on the forensic evidence, the baby has marks on its head that are consistent with the texture of the fabric where the child was sleeping. The child was in a chair next to the bed where his mother and step father were sleeping. The evidence suggests that a minimum of 30 pounds of pressure was applied to the baby head for approximately 1 minute that caused the baby to suffocate.

The mother brought the baby to the hospital. She is very talkative in the initial interview, stating that she may have accidentally stepped on the child’s head. She has since changed her story on at least two other occasions. One of her statements was handwritten in the third person.

The baby’s stepfather did not go to the hospital with the baby’s mother but was later taken to the hospital stating that he had consumed ant poison and bleach. He is placed in a psychiatric ward. This subject has a history of drug abuse, auditory hallucinations and diagnosed as bipolar. He told the doctors that he no longer wanted to commit suicide. The subject spends long hours watching TV, especially action oriented films. His statements are short and straight to the point. He is difficult to interview. He never specifically denies knowledge or involvement.

Analyze the forensic life style personality preference of this crime:

J ( ) or P ( )

Based on the information given in the synopsis, predict the type personality that you are likely to encounter in your initial interview.

______ ______ ______ ______ (Step father)

______ ______ ______ ______ (Mother)

(This actual case and others will be discussed using the concept of personality scanning and personality movement.)

POLICE DIVERSITY TRAINING

Appreciation of differences in cultures is important, but it is not considered the highest priority competence. There is no way that the police can learn all of the cultural differences in the community that they police. The ability to treat cultures in a fair and consistent manner is more important, no matter how much you know about their culture. The basis of this training program is built on the concept that human behavior is not random; observed over time, it is fairly consistent and this consistency crosses cultural boundaries. This workshop trains participants to identify and deal with behavior patterns related to personality. People tend to be most comfortable when around others whose personalities are similar to their own, but the community is diverse. Sworn and non-sworn officers can reduce stress and increase effectiveness by using a basic understanding of personality differences. The key is being able to predict not only your reactions in a given situation but the other person's as well. Self-knowledge expands emotional control and our ability to choose effective strategies when interacting with others. Officers that are in emotional control of a situation are more likely to exercise good judgment in dealing with the public. Practical exercises to enhance the participant's understanding of this concept will be presented. This technique uses practical applications of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

ASSERTIVENESS TRAINING

Because an increasing number of people view self growth and self actualization as their birth right, many are aspiring to be strong and effective in their work as well as in their personal lives. Many women are seeking to do this without a loss of femininity. Many men want to find a way to do it without being overbearing or obnoxious. A major part of this kind of strength and effectiveness is assertiveness.

Assertive behavior is that type of interpersonal behavior in which a person stands up for his/her legitimate rights in such a way as the rights of others are not violated. This type of behavior creates an awareness for one's own rights as well as that of others. With this awareness comes the necessary self confidence to deal with both work and personal situations.

MANAGING CONFLICT IN THE REAL WORLD

Think of the word "conflict." If you're like most people, you tighten up, close down - lose sight of options and possibilities. Looking at conflict through a hazy flim of fear, anger and frustration puts up barriers between individuals and co workers and shuts down productivity and can creates major problems at home.

Even though conflict is a normal aspect of life, it is not normal behavior for human beings. From the caveman days, conflict was necessary for survival and promoted the "fight-flight" syndrome that is in all of us. What makes it hard for us to intervene in conflict is the simple fact that most of us do not perceive it as being necessary for our physical survival. In other words, it is easier to just give in and go home and "kick the dog." However, the bottom line is that conflict takes in toll in psychological stress which can transfer into health related problems.

The key in the area of conflict resolution is that "we must care engough to confront." We have to overcome the fear of being disliked and rejected and realize that the avoidance factor actually makes things worse by creating anger and resentment. The organization suffers because the person is not acting in its best interest. You suffer because the person's deficiencies reduce your effectiveness. And, most importantly, when a person is acting inappropriately and isn't told, you have robbed him of an important opportunity to learn and grown in his development process.

REMEMBER: WHAT YOU RESIST WILL PERSIST!!!!
