Interviews are considered to be the second stage which a candidate needs to go through and pass in order to get selected or hired for a job.

However, the most important factor of an interview is its one to one form of communication.

Humble inquiry questions keep the problem solving thinking with the problem owner, not the person asking the question.

Other effective questions that can be asked, once the problem is clearly defined, are diagnostic questions.

Like Margie, I’m on faculty with the Thedacare Center for Healthcare Value and I look forward to supporting healthcare organizations to learn problem solving thinking and coaching skills when I’m back from Japan.

If your organization is looking for support in developing your people as problem solvers, I recommend starting with focusing on A3 problem solving thinking.

Interviews are a great and one of the surest short ways to find the best of the candidates for jobs and to know about them in detail.

A few weeks ago I joined my coach, friend and colleague Margie Hagene at a San Francisco hospital to help them learn and practice problem solving thinking through the Thedacare Center for Healthcare Value.

I love working with Margie and have become a better leader and coach since we first met four years ago when I was the Director of the Lean Promotion Office at Sutter’s Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
