Everyone you hire has father issues. And those issues will impact the way they fit into your company. The Type B father wounds – where bad things happened to them – are often well identified by the applicant, and they are working on the consequences of those bad things.
The bigger issue is the Type A father wounds. When the father has been absent in fact, or merely has been inactive in his fathering style, your applicant will be affected by the lack of fathering but will probably be unaware of the implications in his life and his work.
There are seven facet of fathering that every person needs to experience. These CDs are designed to be used by the HR director to enable him or her to weave a series of innocuous questions into the standard interview.
