The Most Important Leadership Attribute? New Study Has Clear Answer

The Most Important Leadership Attribute? New Study Has Clear Answer | RecruiterNation | Scoop.it

At the end of the day, this day belonged to Integrity. Perhaps this isn’t surprising, but a validation of something positive is never a bad thing. It’s also a timely reminder of why the “unfavorable” ratings of our two major presidential candidates are continually in the stratosphere – as both candidates are widely perceived as having serious shortcomings in this regard: truthfulness issues, behavioral issues, character issues, etc.

Ideally we like our leaders to be individuals of good character and integrity, a simple enough bar that too often isn’t reached.

Hiring is Not as Rational as you Think

Hiring is Not as Rational as you Think | RecruiterNation | Scoop.it

We are all less rational at work than we would like to believe. Here's what science shows about hiring and performance management.  


One study showed that, "... interviewers rate candidates more negatively when they have been given negative information about them beforehand" 

 

Another study showed that, "... managers are less likely to notice mistakes in their employees when they were responsible for hiring them, because the alternative would be to admit that they were wrong, which would make them feel stupid."


"When someone makes us feel good – intentionally or not – we will be more likely to agree with their views and be persuaded by them."
