Additional Information

Trainer Comments: Teaching Moment: Ask a question that is the opposite of the question you asked. Or, ask a question that is the opposite of your subjective reaction to the candidate’s answer. For example, if you asked about the candidate’s strengths, you would follow-up with a reverse question on the opposite of the candidate’s strong point.
