When you’re interviewing a job candidate or weighing whether to promote someone, encourage them to analyze the past. Get them to open up by starting your questions with “Tell me about ... ,” “What is your experience with ... ?” and “What was it like to ... ?” Phrase your questions neutrally. Example: Replace “Was that job as much fun as it sounds?” with “How did you like that job?”
