🎃 People-First Leadership - Halloween Issue 🎃
By Robert Merrill • Issue #7 • View online
👻 Let’s hope the ghouls haven’t taken over everything you’re working on today, Halloween in the United States! Many offices will be overrun with decorations, spooky costumes and even a spook alley or two. Elves and munchkins, witches and goblins will be seen extracting candy from desks through the day and going door to door into the night.
🍬 Here is a treat of a few lists of fun videos (watch Josh Sundquist’s if you do nothing else today) and some scary HR and Interview stories (do you have your own?) and then a more normal grouping of solid people-leadership articles I have curated recently.
I am including an article I wrote as well on how a 5-point scale in interview reviews can help reduce group-think and bias in interviewing if thoughtfully implemented. I know that, for some, a 4 vs 5 point scale in your interviews is quite the talking point. I’m curious where you land on this surprisingly hot-button issue.
🙀 I am always open to your feedback. Reach out, if you like, and please forward this email to those who might be interested!
Happy Halloween!
