Why Unqualified Candidates Get Hired Anyway — HBS Working Knowledge

Why Unqualified Candidates Get Hired Anyway — HBS Working Knowledge | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Why do businesses evaluate candidates solely on past job performance, failing to consider the job's difficulty? Why do university admissions officers focus on high GPAs, discounting influence of easy grading standards?
Sharrock's insight:

The article feature two studies and the implications that for all the procedures and policies in place, they are most likely unsuccessfull in overcoming bias against hiring most qualified candidates.

 

Maybe we should start looking to see if there is an app for that decision making...

It is not a perfect science, but we need to do a better job. This is very much the case in education where teachers who should not be teachers become administrators.

Sharrock's insight:
"We expect our people to perform at their best; the future of work demands more creative thinking and problem solving, more social connectivity and agility, yet we still tend to force them into environments that do not support them. (Incidentally, all of the images shown here are workplaces)." (excerpt)

Are You A Good Judge Of Character? Are You Sure?

Are You A Good Judge Of Character? Are You Sure? | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

Most people won’t admit it, but we size up other people's characters all the time. In fact, research suggests that it takes just 30 seconds to make up our minds about someone’s intelligence and personality (we make other assessments even faster) and that these evaluations are surprisingly accurate.

 

In one study, researchers showed participants short videos of different couplesinteracting, and participants were able to detect which individuals had cheated on their partners. Likewise, observers watching videos of randomly selected speed daters were able to infer participants' level of romantic interest. Even when the people being evaluated are children, observers can infer their character with a similar degree of accuracy than the children’s parents do.

 

So the idea that you can’t judge a book by its cover is inconsistent with the evidence: People, it seems, are fairly transparent and we can see through them pretty easily and accurately

Why So Many Diversity Programs Fail

Why So Many Diversity Programs Fail | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Hiring tests don’t really solve the diversity problem, either, for some of the same reasons. In theory, skills-based testing is designed to level the playing field and let the best candidate shine. But managers didn’t appreciate being told to hire someone they didn’t hand select. Dobbin and Kalev also found that some companies were only giving the tests to people they didn’t want to hire, i.e. under-represented minorities. Or, they just ignored the results in favor of picking who they wanted.

Sharrock's insight:
School districts should consider this research and its findings. The tech industry is being noticed now in the public, but education also has the diversity issue, especially in leadership positions, but also in the learner leadership positions (teaching/educator).

“As the psychologist David Elkind has famously researched, adolescence is marked by a phenomenon known now as ‘imaginary audience.’ Consider a thirteen-year-old so embarrassed that he misses a week of class, positive that the entire school is thinking and murmuring about some tiny incident that in truth hardly anyone noticed. Or a teenage girl who spends three hours in front of the mirror each morning, as if she’s about to go on stage. They do this because they’re convinced that their every move is being watched with rapt attention by the rest of the world. Even as adults, we’re susceptible to this fantasy during a harmless walk down the street.”

The Dutch researchers distinguish between two types of focus when you’re putting your energies into an activity. In the “promotion focus,” you seek to realize your goals and desires, achieving an idealized outcome. In the “prevention focus,” conversely, you try to do what you “ought” to do and stay away from anything that will keep you from allowing that to happen. You’ll experience regulatory fit when things feel right to you, and the focus of what you’re being asked to do fits the focus of what you wish to do.

as the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein pointed out, “no course of action can be determined by a rule, because any course of action can be made out to accord with the rule.” 


In other words, rules may seem to make sense, but when we try to apply them in the real world we find that things are far more complicated and simple rules aren’t much help.
