    • How does the workplace of today and tomorrow differ from that of yesterday?
    • Eight fundamental forces:
      • Technology.
      • Diversity.
      • Teams.
      • Personality Fit.
      • Work/Non-Work Balance.
      • Change.
      • Learning.
      • Leadership.
    • These forces multiply one another.
  • 5. The Modern Leadership Mandate
    • The definition of leadership effectiveness in the 21 st Century is heavily influenced by personality characteristics.
    • The three leadership imperatives for a F100 Consumer Products Company:
        • “ Setting the Table”
        • “ Taking Others on the Ride”
        • “ The Right Results the Right Way”
    • Applies to leaders at all levels.
    • Is tightly connected to business strategy.
    • Blends results and behavior.
    • Develops a shared mindset, target and focus.
  • 6. The Personality-Leadership Connection
    • Personality predicts leadership performance.
    • VP of Organizational Effectiveness: “How you will lead is determined by who you are.”
    • Use personality data to:
      • Select future leaders at all levels.
      • Help leaders transition to new levels/roles.
      • Improve the performance of current leaders.
  • 7. Research Findings
    • At least 25% of a leader’s overall effectiveness can be directly traced to personality.
    • Effectiveness as measured by:
      • Team, Unit, and Organizational $$ Performance
      • Individual and Team Satisfaction and Functioning
      • Supervisor Ratings
    • This relationship holds across “levels” of leadership.
    • Correlations may even be stronger for specific leadership competencies and tasks such as customer focus, motivating others, setting priorities, etc.
  • 8. The Good and the Bad of Leadership
    • Good leadership and bad leadership may be qualitatively different things.
    • Personality predicts and influences what a leader SHOULD do:
      • Act modestly and humbly.
      • Foster team spirit, etc.
    • And what a leader SHOULDN’T do:
      • Betray trust.
      • Act arrogantly or insensitively, etc.
    • Countless empirical studies have indicated that the baseline of managerial incompetence is at least 50%.
    • The vast majority of these studies highlight the role of personality as THE key issue.
  • 9. F100 Transportation Company Mini-Case
    • Leader Selection:
      • 10-year study of progression of 312 “high-potential” leaders
      • Those who fulfilled potential were differentiated by:
        • PI Profile: Conscientious, Precise, Self-Disciplined
        • Higher General Cognitive and Analytical Reasoning Abilities
        • Came from two of the company’s six primary business units
      • “ Crash and Burns” had distinctive PI’s as well.
    • Leader Development:
      • Targeted behavioral feedback for current top-talent to create enhanced self-awareness.
      • Extra attention paid to those switching roles (e.g. tactical vs. strategic).
      • 91% of participants have felt the program to be valuable.
