Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, a psychologist and chief talent scientist at
ManpowerGroup, says we're not picking leaders in the right way. While we
should be promoting people based on their competence and potential, it's often
the incompetent, overconfident candidates -- most of them men -- who get
ahead. Studies show that, by many measures, women are actually better equipped
to become strong, successful managers. But the solution to getting more of
them into the executive ranks isn't quotas or other initiatives that mandate
gender diversity. To improve leadership across the board, we need to focus on
the metrics proven to enhance performance and set higher standards for
everyone. Chamorro-Premuzic is also a professor of business psychology at
University College London and Columbia University, and the author of the book
"Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?: (And How to Fix It)" (Harvard
Business Review Press, 2019). Read more
