2 NMA LeaderLab Scenario Your group has recently lost its manager who took a higher-level job; and your Human Resource (HR) department has identified five potential replacement candidates who applied for the replacement posting. Under your company HR rules, your team will have the ultimate authority to select or reject (i.e. veto) any candidate. You must do so by coming up with five questions, which each candidate must answer and which will form the sole basis for his or her selection or rejection. You have 30 minutes to generate the five applicant questions, and the majority of your group must agree on each question. If your group fails to come up with all five questions or if your questions are deemed frivolous and rejected by HR, then your next manager will be appointed by the department director without input from you. Before beginning, you must unanimously select a LEADER who will later brief HR on your five questions and the associated rationale, and an OBSERVER who will report on your groups process. To speed things up, you should first select a list of five criteria which best characterize what you value in a boss; and then devise five questions (based on these criteria) which will provide your group members with the information you need to select or veto a particular candidate. Keep in mind that if you dont finish all your questions in 30 minutes, then your next manager will be selected for you…. Each group will be allocated 5 minutes to report on its results. The group LEADER will use 3 of those minutes to cover the five questions and the groups rationale (including corresponding criteria) in choosing those questions. The OBSERVER will then use 2 minutes to report on the process the group used to derive its questions. There will be a hard cutoff at the end of 5 minutes. The facilitator will take the last 5 minutes to comment on each teams questions, and to reject any questions that fail to meet standard HR criteria or to address meaningful criteria. Teams that survive this review will be authorized to select their next boss, SO DO YOUR BEST!

6 NMA LeaderLab Facilitator Hints Assign each team a number (Team 1-5) by location, then go through the LL instructions and hand out the scenario and prize charts. Make sure all teams (and you) adhere to the designated time allocation for each LL section. While taking reports from each of the teams, use the following suggestions to score the exercise. Since both the selected criteria and the corresponding questions clearly are subjective, here are some questions you can use to characterize each report: 1.Were all group criteria defined? 2.Was the associated rationale reasonable? 3.Do the questions adequately address the criteria and/or rationale, and did the team complete the five questions? 4.Are the questions likely to solicit the desired candidate information? 5.Was the group process effective? It will help if you make up a matrix for these five questions and the five groups so that you can enter YES or NO (and any comments) for each question as each team presents their reports. Use this information to guide your feedback. Group reports with at least four YES ratings and no major adverse comments pass the exercise, and can select their next boss. All others will have to take whomever the department head appoints. To provide feedback, first thank each group for their participation and inputs. Hopefully this exercise helped them formulate specific criteria and to formulate meaningful questions. Next, hand out the LeaderLab Lessons and Evaluation Forms and cover associated points. Finally, comment on and score each groups performance and announce the winners. Collect completed evaluation forms before the participants leave.
