Tevis Trower: Re-Humanizing the Interview Process By Shifting Our Language
We don't hire for human competency but for skill set. Â Our language is inhuman in spite of the very real experience of working with HUMANS. People want Connection and Authentic Interaction. We need to understand What makes you, you?

Episode highlights: Why it is important to re-humanize your hiring process Changing the mindset by shifting the language The formula for a successful shift Problem: Why is this important? Because we focus upon skill development to get into the roles we aspire to, we buy into the notion that work and life are separate. But the reality is that we are only one person, one being. Â Through this buy-in to self-abnegation, we leave ourselves out of the workplace and all but guarantee to burn out and disillusionment. When we approach interviewing that way, weâ€™re bound to forget that the person across from us is first and foremost a human being. Impostor syndrome of the interviewers (hiring managers!) IS-is there a place for me here? Everyone feels a little like a fake/fraud. Myth: This person is only as good as their resume. Truth: Most of the best people, have the worst resumes Mindset Creating a corporate culture happens one conversation at a time. Talking about what you are passionate about, what matters to you. Work is home It is a demand market. * we forget we are hiring a human beingâ€¦ not filling a seat. Bring an entire life into the company Rickâ€™s Thoughts Stay away from â€œstinkin thinkinâ€ Â - Transactional thought Judging people based on a piece of paper Restructuring the recruiting department to touch those who apply Solutions: By shifting the language we begin to shift the mindset. Changing the language - humanize What does it mean to be human at your company? Donâ€™t talk headcount, filling a seat life count, heart count. Talk about finding the â€œright new colleagueâ€ Not filling a seat or role, rounding out our community Shift to human terms The breadth and depth of this person. Â Talk about the eulogy and not the resume Think of everyone in terms of a peer Values - The framework is in the questions, not the answers If the adage is that people leave managers, not companies, they probably refuse offers from managers as well.Â Foster a culture that supports the value for success.Â Are they Google-ly? Â And what happens when being googly becomes a weakness? Homogeneity can be a downfall. Rick's Plan Cut out words like â€œcandidateâ€, Job Description, industry terms Key Take Away: Tune into your own Humanity Humanize the language Slow down the interview process to give more room & space
