REMINDER/Media Advisory: Who Are We to Decide?

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 7, 2015) - Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, an international authority on personality and psychometrics, and author of six books and more than 100 scientific papers, will be the first guest and presenter at SPB's new Webinar series, starting on Tuesday, April 7.

SPB has been gathering data throughout its 35 year history, and there are several key traits that make a good leader, especially in today's turbulent global economy. Thus the importance of sound decision making in leadership and proper profiling and psychometric testing for leaders will be at the heart of this special presentation.

Chamorro-Premuzic, also CEO of Hogan Assessment and currently a professor of business psychology at University College London (UCL), notes that "Major retailers lost money and have been closing stores across the country putting about thousands of employees out of work largely because of a failure of leadership." He adds that "the vast majority of technical, political, and cultural errors made by some leaders have demonstrated that recruiting an outsider CEO may be a big failure. Whether in governance, hiring, finance or management, thinking clearly is becoming one of the best skills to leverage," he continues.
