Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic View Profile

Chief Talent Scientist
Manpower Group

“If instead we look for the qualities that make people better leaders (transformational leadership, integrity, EQ, and communication skills), especially when they don’t usually help people become leaders, we will end up with both more women leaders and better leaders. All this, while reducing the likelihood that people see gender-diversity policies as some balancing act of positive discrimination, when in fact women show higher potential for leadership than men.”

— Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic
