Look around your office. Turn on the TV. Incompetent leadership is everywhere, and there's no denying that most of these leaders are men.
In this timely and provocative book, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic asks two powerful questions: Why is it so easy for incompetent men to become leaders? And why is it so hard for competent people--especially competent women--to advance?
Marshaling decades of rigorous research, Chamorro-Premuzic points out that although men make up a majority of leaders, they underperform when compared with female leaders. In fact, most organizations equate leadership potential with a handful of destructive personality traits, like overconfidence and narcissism. In other words, these traits may help someone get selected for a leadership role, but they backfire once the person has the job.
When competent women--and men who don't fit the stereotype--are unfairly overlooked, we all suffer the consequences. The result is a deeply flawed system that rewards arrogance rather than humility, and loudness rather than wisdom.
There is a better way. With clarity and verve, Chamorro-Premuzic shows us what it really takes to lead and how new systems and processes can help us put the right people in charge.

WHY THE SCIENCE OF PEOPLE IS YOUR KEY WEAPON IN THE WAR FOR TALENT
All organisations have problems, and they nearly always concern people: how to manage them; whom to hire, fire or promote; and how to motivate, develop and retain high potential employees.
Psychology, the main science for understanding people, should be a pivotal tool for solving these problems - yet most companies play it by ear, and billions of dollars are wasted on futile interventions to attract and retain the right people for key roles.
Bridging the gap between the psychological science of talent and common real-world talent practices, The Talent Delusion aims to educate HR practitioners and leaders on how to measure, predict and manage talent. It will provide readers with data-driven solution to the common problems around employee selection, development and engagement; how to define and evaluate talent; how to detect and inhibit toxic employee behaviours; and how to identify and harness leadership potential.

We're told that the key to success in life and business is confidence: believe in yourself, and the world is yours. But building confidence can be a challenging task. And, as leading psychologist Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic argues, confidence can actually get in the way of achievement; self-esteem is nothing without competence, the core skills, to back it up.
Confidence is feeling capable. Competence is being capable. None of the figures whose success is put down to supreme self-belief, Barack Obama, Madonna, Muhammad Ali could have achieved their goals without the hard-won skills (and years of training) behind the confidence mask. Successful people are confident because of their success, and not the other way around.
Whether you want to improve your social skills, get a promotion or that all-important first job, this game-changing exploration of how to build success, in the mould of Robert Cialdini's Influence, Susan Cain's Quiet and Steven Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, will change the way you think about achievement.

Will artificial intelligence improve the way we work and live, or will it alienate us? The choice is ours. What will we decide?
It's no secret that AI is changing the way we live, work, love, and entertain ourselves. Dating apps are using AI to pick our potential partners. Retailers are using AI to predict our behavior and desires. Rogue actors are using AI to persuade us with Twitter bots and fake news. Companies are using AI to hire us—or not.
This is just the beginning. As AI becomes smarter and more humanlike, our societies, our economies, and our humanity will undergo the most dramatic changes we've seen since the Agricultural Revolution. Some of these changes will enhance our species. Others may dehumanize us and make us more machinelike in our interactions with others. It's up to us to adapt and determine how we want to live and work.
Are you ready?
In I, Human psychologist Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic offers a guide for reclaiming ourselves in a world in which most of our decisions will be made for us. To do so, we’ll need to double down on what makes us so special—our curiosity, adaptability, and emotional intelligence—while relying on the lost virtues of empathy, humility, and self-control.
Filled with big-think fascinations and practical wisdom, I, Human is the book we need to thrive in the future.
Recruitment is where organizations are shaped and careers are made, leaving a profound impact on organizations, individual careers, and society as a whole. The Future of Recruitment helps professionals, researchers, employers, and everybody interested in the world of work to understand the past, present, and future of recruitment.
Franziska Leutner, Reece Akhtar and Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic describe the modern technologies and ideas that are changing recruitment, many driven by artificial intelligence. They explore new developments like automated video interviews and game-based assessments to select top talent and describe the science that underlies them. Evaluating ethical issues and highlighting how technology might be used to make recruitment and progression at work meritocratic, The Future of Recruitment reflects on longstanding issues in recruitment and its role in building today's unequal world of work.
Explaining how we might use technology ethically to tackle past issues and future developments, the study helps define new directions and values for a future of recruitment that serves society, employers, and job seekers alike.
Tras décadas de investigación rigurosa, Chamorro-Premuzic señala que, pese a que los hombres constituyan la mayoría de los líderes, tienen peores resultados en comparación con las líderes femeninas. De hecho, la mayor parte de las organizaciones equiparan el potencial de liderazgo con determinados rasgos de personalidad destructivos, como narcisismo y exceso de confianza. Es decir, estos rasgos pueden ayudar a que alguien sea seleccionado para un papel de liderazgo, pero son contraproducentes cuando la persona obtiene el puesto.
Cuando las mujeres competentes (y los hombres que no encajan en el estereotipo) no son tenidos en cuenta, todos sufrimos las consecuencias. El resultado es un sistema profundamente defectuoso que recompensa ser arrogante en lugar de humilde y ser gritón en lugar de sabio.
"Vielleicht ist die eigentliche Frage ja nicht, warum es Frauen so schwer haben, Karriere zu machen, sondern vielmehr, warum es mediokren Männern so leicht fällt, aufzusteigen."
