KEY JUDGING DATES
JOE’S ADVICE TO JUDGES
JOE’S TOP TIPS
- Frame judging as an opportunity to be inspired. Rather than it being just another appointment or item on your to-do list, expect to be inspired. Set aside time to focus and soak it all in – and pace yourself! It can be an emotional lift, so make sure you’re ready for it.
- Take time to reflect. Before starting the judging process, give some thought as to what makes a great winner. We’ve made a lot of progress with our scoring system, but there’s no rigid formula. Use your own critical benchmarks, and notice your own filters and biases. After judging, build in time (5 – 15 minutes works for me) to think about the experience.
- Be aware of how you’re scoring. Honestly, my scoring tends to move as I read more applications, so I make a deliberate effort to watch out for scoring creep. As you make piles of Yes, No and Maybes, occasionally look back and sense-check whether you’re being desensitized.
- Share the stories. Sharing your experience with friends, colleagues, and family can help it come alive. You’ll get a free sense-check as you see the impact the story makes on them too.
- Have fun! Our primary job is to shine a light on individuals who are doing good and have the capacity to do much, much more… and to inspire others. That’s an awesome thing to be doing! So make a conscious effort to keep your energy up. Build in quick exercise breaks or get a walk in. Put on the coffee. Open up the tequila if that’s what it takes.
