Robert Hogan and Ryne Sherman to Speak in Mexico City on October 16

HRToolsHRTools, Hogan’s premier distributor in Mexico, is hosting a breakfast event on October 16 in Mexico City featuring Dr. Robert Hogan and Dr. Ryne Sherman as speakers.

Dr. Hogan’s presentation will cover the topic of humility and effective leadership. When organizations search for new leaders, they consciously or unconsciously look for candidates with charisma. However, a robust new line of research on leadership shows that charisma degrades leadership and often creates long-term chaos and ruin within organizations. In contrast with charismatic leaders, humble leaders admit their mistakes, listen to feedback, and solicit input from knowledgeable subordinates, and this creates an environment of continuous improvement.

Here is a brief preview of the presentation from Dr. Hogan:

Dr. Sherman’s presentation will focus on ROI and employee selection. People are an organization’s most important asset, and creating a competitive advantage begins by assessing and hiring the right candidates and developing them. Organizations that don’t use valid and accurate assessments in the selection process have to rely on intuition instead of data. This results in a lot of wasted time, energy and, most importantly, money.

Here is a brief preview of the Dr. Sherman’s presentation, as well as a message from HRTools founder, Victoria Zapata:

Dr. Hogan and Dr. Sherman will speak at 9 am at the Presidente InterContinental Hotel at Campos Eliseos 218, Polanco, Polanco IV Secc, 11550 Ciudad de Mexico. Registration for the event is currently full, but you can reserve a spot on the waiting list here.
