Description

ISBN: 9781593700775

Prepares candidates for the assessment center method as part of a promotional testing process. Kastros' assertion when writing this book is that candidates need to prepare for the position they are seeking, rather than for the testing process. His writing style is matter-of-fact and often humorous, and will help candidates make the mental paradigm shift from test candidate to incumbent officer. A section on personal assessment helps candidates take stock of their current status and leadership style. This baseline provides a foundation that inspires questions about real-world scenarios mimicked in the testing arena. A candidate who has thoroughly thought through these scenarios and considered possible solutions and outcomes will be much more comfortable in the assessment center process than one who has simply focused on how to act in the testing environment. Kastros outlines 27 Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSAs) spanning the three dimensions of leadership, management and emergency scene operations. The book contains test exercises, sample problems, rating criteria, scoring sheets, assessor selection, and common pitfalls.
