Using the STAR Response Method and Behavioral Psychology in your Business English Class
STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action, Result. Using this strategy is particularly helpful in response to competency-focused questions, which typically start out with phrases such as, "Describe a time when..." and "Share an example of a situation where...." This method is used by executives, managers, and HR staff internationally to make decisions about recruitment, hiring, personel training, employee relocation, and promotion. Why not use this method to teach our clients how to swing any interview in their favor and reach their personal career goals. Your learners will thank you a million times for showing them how to ace any situation where they have to prove they are the right one for the job.
