Zoom Out! Building a Successful Product Requires a New Way of Thinking
The traditional interview process is broken, and a change is needed. While the working world changes around us, the process used to bring people to teams remains decades old and largely unchanged. Interviews are intimidating, expensive, and often, unfair. Building high-performance teams starts with the interview process - but it demands one that is humanized and that focuses more on the relationship between employer and employee than just the job. The more each side knows about the other, the higher the odds of a successful relationship. The 2020s are proving to be a period of enormous change in the way people work, and hiring, motivating, and retaining talented people has never been this hard... and this vital, especially in the tech space. This one-hour talk shares new techniques, approaches, and attitudes for assembling stronger humanized teams using better interview techniques, more fitting for these times. Why? Because great teams require a great fit.
