This April, top interviewers from across the country will come together in Nashville, Tennessee for the 2020 Elite Training Day hosted by Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates and the International Association of Interviewers (IAI).
Elite Training Day was created by IAI to promote the ongoing educational growth and development of elite interviewers. While primarily designed for those that have earned IAI’s Certified Forensic Interviewer (CFI) designation, anyone interested in becoming an elite interviewer is encouraged to attend. As the only event of its kind focused on the craft of interviewing and interrogation, the mission of this unique conference is to provide educational, business and networking opportunities to interviewers from all disciplines.
Please watch the video below for a sneak peek at this year’s event:
Every leader—regardless of the industry or profession—understands the critical importance of pursuing meaningful ways to enhance our skill sets, allowing those talents to evolve to meet the changing needs of our chosen field. Nothing that requires any genuine level of expertise remains stagnant. Nothing that involves the application of that talent will stand idle while the world around us continues to move forward.
In retail loss prevention, we put a great deal of focus on the need to evolve. We recognize that the business is moving forward at an exceptional pace, influenced by the avalanche of information, competition, technology, and customer demand that forces us to make endless modifications to the way we approach what we do.
Yet for all the well-deserved attention that is given to the way our responsibilities are changing, there remains an imminent need to stay in tune with our core skills—those that set us apart and persist as a prominent function of the profession. Clearly, interview and interrogation have remained a vital aspect of those core competencies.
Interview and interrogation skills have always been an essential part of who we are—and a talent that must be continuously refined and developed. This, too is an evolving skill, driven by an ongoing understanding of how norms—and laws are changing, how information in a digital world is impacting what we know and how we respond, and a multitude of other factors that can influence the process. That’s what makes these conferences so important. By continuing to raise the bar we elevate the entire profession. We create an expectation of performance that drives growth and development.
