There is a pathological mismatch between the qualities that seduce us in a leader and those that are needed to be an effective leader. We explore and introduce this in the webinar with Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Co-founder at Deeper Signals and Chief Innovation Officer at ManpowerGroup.
Psychological research demonstrates that if leaders were selected on competence rather than confidence, humility rather than charisma, and integrity rather than narcissism, we would not just end up with more competent leaders, but also more women leaders.
If we want less incompetent men in leadership roles, we need to become better at distinguishing between confidence and competence in our leaders. The good news is that with data, feedback and self-awareness we can all start to identify and become better leaders.
✅ Why do we confuse confidence with competence, and how does that impact gender equality in leadership?
✅ What are the psychological characteristics that produce toxic leadership, and how to manage them?
✅ How can organizations leverage data and feedback to build effective and inclusive leaders?
