On Monday, June 22nd, close to 100 HR leaders gathered together to attend a breakfast event hosted by Odgers Berndtson in Toronto. “Unearthing Leadership Talent” featured guest speaker Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, an international authority on psychological profiling and talent management, and the CEO of Hogan Assessment Systems. At the event, Dr. Chamorro-Premuzic shared his ground-breaking research on the linkages between personality, leadership and organizational performance.

This led to a very fruitful discussion about personality assessment and leadership development within the context of organizational culture. Eric Beaudan, who heads up Odgers Berndtson’s Global Leadership Assessment Practice, introduced Dr. Chamorro-Premuzic and talked about the importance of Hogan tools in Odgers Berndtson’s work with leaders and leadership teams across Canada, and globally. Attendees included senior HR people from TD insurance, RBC, SNC Lavalin, Mazda Canada, Aon Hewitt, Deloitte, Walmart, PepsiCoFoods, Ontario Medical Association, University of Toronto Schools, and Postmedia Network Canada Corp.
