Research Contributions

PBC proudly applies an extensive collection of research, case studies, and thought leadership in developing solutions for clients. PBC’s expertise and insight into both local and global leadership is highlighted in recent work:

  • What the Best Leaders Look Like – Research shows that the best leaders tend to be achievement focused, strategic, and inspiring, with high emotional competence. Leaders need to focus on improving their workload management and their ability to challenge poor performance.
  • Leader Personality and Performance Differences in the Public Versus Private Sector – Understanding what differentiates leaders can be useful for selection and development. This white paper summarizes research that examines similarities and differences in the personality and multirater performance reviews of executives and managers within the Australian public and private sectors.
  • Gender Differences in Australian Leadership – There has been a growing interest in understanding the similarities and differences between leaders of different genders. Insights in this area can have implications for the selection and development of leadership talent and leaders’ subsequent performance at the individual, team, and organizational levels.
