Seems to be the season to discuss leadership. Wonder why?
A recent guest on the Doug "lawyer to peacemaker" Noll show was Dr. Robert Hogan, renowned expert on leadership and personality and President of Hogan Assessment Systems. Dr. Hogan discussed several things, including:
- how evolution relates to leadership and followership
- why the current trend of focusing on "strengths" may be misguided
- the base rate of bad leaders (hint: it's not 5%)
- what followers want in a leader (hint: it's not a big ego)
Good stuff. Reminds me that I need to join 2002 and start doing more audio/video.
