Humans are hardwired to get along, get ahead and find meaning in their lives. Yet despite being a member of the most powerful living force on earth, what do we really know about what drives us? That is our personality. Personality predicts our, and others, behaviour; the way we and they relate to the world and the people in it. Whether this relates to how we learn, work, love and lead. Despite being centuries old, the study of personality is only just beginning to provide leaders with a development route map through what is a complex and abstract concept.
Those leaders who grasp the power of personality in the science of leadership will benefit sooner rather than later from the new insights and learning available. The supplier of our leadership assessment psychometrics, Hogan Assessment Systems, have produced a 40-minute documentary featuring some of the foremost minds in personality psychology and the business world, including Bob Hogan the President of Hogan Assessment Systems. Together they explain what personality is and how it impacts our lives and the lives of those around us and is a critical factor in an organisation’s success.
