Why CEOs of NGOs fail when their 'dark side' gets in the way
Leadership success is as much about emotional intelligence as it is about technical competence, market intelligence, strategic insight or business acumen. Whilst huge demands are placed on those who aspire to leadership roles, research suggests that leaders actually fail because of who they are and how they act in certain situations. The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) describes the dark side of personality –qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and that can derail peoples’ chances of success. This talk will draw on the work of Dotlichand Cairo and apply their research of leadership behavior to the world of transnational NGOs, giving a first-hand experience of the successes and failures in leadership practice.
Richard Marshall is the Senior Director for People and Culture of World Vision International –one of the largest and most influential Western TNGOs. He brings his background as a chartered occupational psychologist to work closely with senior staff to lead and establish sustainable organizational change and effectively manage people.
Lunch will be provided.
