Hiring Incompetent Men Isn't Strategic with Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic


This week we welcome Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, author of 'Why so many incompetent men become leaders' and 'The Talent Delusion: Why Data, Not Intuition, Is the Key to Unlocking Human Potential'.  

Dr. Chamorrow-Premuzik was visiting Toronto, where we saw him speak at the Rotman School of Management. We were personally introduced by Anatomy of a Strategy guest Nilofer Merchant and Tomas was extremely generous in taking the time to join us on the show. 

We had a fascinating discussion with Tomas.

  • How the title of his book came to be

  • Why it has never been a worse time to be a man

  • Why we need to make it harder for incompetent men to make it to the top

  • How performance is often a matter of perception

  • How biological and cultural evolution has affected how we perceive leadership.

And much more!
