    SPOTLIGHT: Elevating Competent Leaders with Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic

    SPOTLIGHT: Elevating Competent Leaders with Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic

    *This episode is an excerpt taken from our 2020 interview.
    Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Chief Talent Scientist at Manpower Group, argues many of our leaders are incompetent. Chamorro-Premuzic believes this is largely due to humans’ inability to distinguish between confidence and competence —  that is, how capable we think an individual is, compared to how capable they actually are. In this Talent Angle podcast interview, he explores why ineffective leaders are so often elevated, arguing that our judgment is too easily clouded by charisma and charm. For organizations looking to advance more effective leaders, he makes the case for promoting competence, humility and integrity.

HR, leadership and much more

This is a podcast where you think it will be all "business-y", and yes, it is. But so much of what they cover can be applied to your personal life. The ideas presented, back by research, can really make you re-think the way you conduct your business and your life. Well worth the time.

Author and speaker

I just listened to the September 29 episode, and I think that this is one of the most important messages to CEOs, managing partners, and owners. Organizations need to align their brands with their social platform rather than avoid taking a stance on social issues. Ben and Jerry's models this and have experience year-over-year growth. Thanks to Scott Engler for raising awareness about leadership and the need to move society towards ethical thinking.
