Chicago HR Mastermind (Downtown Chapter) Message Board › Hot Seat criteria

Hot Seat criteria

Erich K.
Group Organizer
Chicago, IL
Post #: 3
Following are some criteria to keep in mind when preparing your Chicago HR Mastermind hot seat challenge:

1. Hot seat challenges must be proposed for consideration in advance of a given Meetup via message to Chicago HR Mastermind organizer Erich Kurschat. This is simply to ensure that selected hot seat challenges are of the greatest potential value to all participants. Summarizing your proposed challenge in just a few sentences via the messaging function will suffice (e.g., "I am having trouble with ____. I would like the group's input on ___.").

2. Hot seats are open to ALL members. It has been demonstrated that it is the nature of the challenge presented and not necessarily the role of the presenter that makes for the most effective, engaging hot seat conversations.

3. Hot seat challenges should articulate a current, real-life problem or issue relevant in some way to other HR professionals. Scenarios requiring an intimate knowledge of specific personalities, policies, and circumstances may discourage engagement among participants.

4. Hot seat conversations should be treated as confidential and may NOT be recorded in any way. In order to build trust within the group, members are asked to not speak about details shared during a Chicago HR Mastermind Meetup outside of the Meetup. Hot seaters may choose to alter names and other identifying information as they see fit.

5. Hot seat challenges should be kept concise. The value in a given hot seat challenge is the discussion that ensues among participants once the challenge has been presented to the group. Plan to take no more than 2-3 minutes articulating your challenge to the group, who may then ask any relevant follow-up questions.

Chicago HR Mastermind hot seat challenges are NOT...

* opportunities to present HR non-relevant issues with limited applicability to the HR discipline as a whole (e.g., "My former employer won't return my phone calls")

* opportunities to convene a commercial focus group around a potential or existing product or service (NOTE: service providers are encouraged to propose hot seat challenges that instead focus on the HR-related functions of their own businesses and organizations, such as the sourcing of candidates, building of teams, and development of individuals)

What do YOU think? Do you agree with the criteria listed here, or do you feel that hot seat conversations could be made more valuable for Chicago HR Mastermind members?

Your comments below are certainly appreciated!
