We all have to go through an interview. We all had an interview for a position, mostly many, sometimes for the same job. You may have also participated in another type of interview for a departure, either by choice or for decreases of work.

We do interviews before hiring a new person to find out more about the individual, their skills and abilities. We are looking for certain skills, a link with the organization, complementarity with the team.

At a departure often an interview will be conducted. We are looking for feedback on the organization. It seems that this type of interview gives positive comments. Many people prefer not to close doors in case of a return to the organization.

Between the two moments, you will probably have evaluation meetings also called performance interviews. This meeting will be used to assess whether you have fulfilled the objectives assigned to you.

During my recent readings, I encountered another type of interview. Each author, in a different context, presents a similar concept of interview with a more or less similar name. All spoke of interviewing of satisfaction, motivation or interest. During this interview, we seek to understand what is the motivation of the individual. It will be necessary to decode the points of satisfaction and non-satisfaction. It will be possible to discover his strengths. But this is absolutely not a moment for evaluation considerations.

The goal is clearly far from an evaluation, it is rather to see what will keep them in the organization, maintain or increase satisfaction, involvement and motivation. It might even be an opportunity to understand how to help get the most out of everyone. In the current context, people are the most important resource in the company or project.

It is a special time to identify what motivates each individual and what can be improved by the project or organization. This kind of meeting will tell you how to invest well in the motivation of your team.

• Want to get the full potential of each person on your team?

• What is the tolerance to lose people in your team?

Nous devons tous passer des entrevues. Nous avons tous eu une entrevue pour un poste, pour la plupart plusieurs, parfois pour le même poste. Vous aurez peut-être aussi participé un autre type entrevu celle d’un départ, que ce soit par choix ou pour des diminutions de travail. 

Nous faisons des entrevues avant d’engager une nouvelle personne, pour en savoir plus sur l’individu, ses compétences et aptitudes. Nous recherchons certaines compétences, un lienavec l’organisation, la complémentarité avec l’équipe.

Lors d’un départ souvent une entrevue sera réalisée. On recherche des retours d’informations sur l’organisation. Il semble que ce type d’entrevue donne plutôt des commentaires positifs. Beaucoup de personnes préfèrent ne pas fermer de porte, en cas d’un retour dans l’organisation.

Entre les deux moments, vous aurez sans doute des rencontres d’évaluations aussi appelées entrevues de performance. Cette rencontre servira à évaluer si vous avez bien rempli les objectifs qui vous ont été attribués.

Lors de mes lectures récentes, j’ai rencontré un autre type d’entrevue. Chacun des auteurs, dans un contexte différent, présente une entrevue de concept similaire ayant un nom plus ou moins similaire. Tous parlaient de faire des entrevues de satisfaction, de motivation ou d’intérêts. Lors de cette entrevue, on cherche à comprendre ce qui est la source de motivation de l’individu. Il faudra décoder les points de satisfactions et de non-satisfactions. Il sera possible de découvrir ses forces. Mais ceci n’est absolument pas un moment pour des considérations d’évaluation. 

L’objectif est clairement loin d’une évaluation, c’est plutôt de voir ce qui permettra les conserver dans l’organisation, de maintenir ou augmenter la satisfaction, l’implication et la motivation. Ce pourrait même être une occasion de comprendre comment contribuer à obtenir un maximum de chacun. Dans le contexte actuel, les personnes sont la ressource la plus importante dans l’entreprise ou dans le projet. 

C’est un moment privilégié pour identifier ce qui motive chaque individu et ce qui peut-être amélioré par le projet ou l’organisation. Ce genre de rencontre permettra de bien investir dans la motivation de votre équipe.

 

·      Souhaité vous obtenir le plein potentiel de chacune des personnes de votre équipe?

·      Quelle est la tolérance à perdre des personnes dans votre équipe?

Years ago we used to have “skip-level” meetings. The team would meet with our manager’s boss (without our manager being present) to talk about what was going wrong and what was going right. He would ask for feedback on how he and the organization could help us to be more successful . While there were some who would use these opportunities as a gripe session, they were fairly constructive overall. It would be nice to have an individual sit down with a manager to discuss the things you mention in your article. I think that it would go a long way in relationship building and overall would promote overall team cohesion.

The "Skip-level" meeting is an interesting concept, never experience it. I can see some very positive information coming out of it.

I love skip level meetings. It is good to remember that in some cultures they are a little nerve wracking because the hierarchical structure of the culture does not encourage breaking rank. It is important to spend some time assuring people that it is safe to be in the meeting and to speak freely. To overcome some resistance, one option is to offer people the chance to meet in groups of two or three. There is safety in numbers and sometimes people will open up more when there are others to support them.
