Executive Search and Selection. Proceedings of a Seminar (Chicago, Illinois, January 31, 1981).
Native American Educational Services, Inc., Chicago, IL.
A pamphlet, intended to help Indian communities select executive directors for community organizations, summarizes information from a seminar on executive search and selection, sponsored by the Community Board Training Project (CBTP) of the Native American Educational Services (NAES) College. A chapter on the search process addresses the formation of search committees and how to advertise a job announcement. The section on questionnaire development covers background information necessary before the questionnaire for candidates is developed, differences between weighted and non-weighted questionnaires, and types of questions to avoid. A section on interview techniques discusses creating a positive interview environment and the interviewing process itself, including ways of asking questions and a list of probe phrases for eliciting more information. The chapter on executive director selection includes sections on selection as a basic personnel function, organization priorities and selection criteria, social and psychological factors, and decision making. A sampling of 12 questions raised at the seminar with answers by presenters and other panel members is provided. Brief background descriptions of the five American Indian presenters, a list of participating Indian community organizations and programs, and information on CBTP and NAES are included. (MH)
