1 Response to "Tools-of-our-trade"

Jo .. finally found your blog.

I have long been inspired by David Whyte.

I also noticed under “Tools of our Trade” the listing of Competency-Based Interviewing. I worked for a number of years with the Hay Group / Hay Management Consultants, lastly in London, UK (1990 – 1994) and was around when Hay / McBer introduced competencies (the methodology and practice) to organizations in North America and the UK. I have done lots and lots of competency analysis, profiling and interviewing in the past.

One of the premier practitioners in the UK is a very good friend of mine .. Jim Osler, lives in Brighton.
