Judgement: The Essence of Effective Leadership - 11 May - ALL PLACES BOOKED

It’s clear that some people have better Judgement than others. But what sets them apart? Although most people would say intelligence, that doesn’t account for the abundance of very smart people who continually make very bad decisions.

Join Dr. Robert Hogan, founder and president of Hogan Assessment Systems, for an in-depth discussion on the concept of Judgement and its effects on decision-making, post-decision reactions, and organizational effectiveness.

Dr. Hogan has been shaking up the psychological community since the 1960s, and was the first psychologist to demonstrate the link between personality and organizational effectiveness. Today, he is the leading authority on personality assessment and leadership.
