Personality, Leadership, and Organizational Effectiveness


About Robert Hogan:

Dr. Hogan is world-renowned expert on personality assessment, leadership, and organisational effectiveness. He is widely credited with demonstrating how personality factors influence organisational effectiveness in a variety of areas, ranging from organisational climate and leadership to selection and effective team performance.

As an iconoclastic observer of American psychology, Dr. Hogan maintains that personality is best examined from the perspective of the observer (reputation) rather than the actor (a person’s identity). As a consequence, he asserts that personality tools should be evaluated in terms of how well reputations (defined by personality tests) predict behaviour on the job and in relationships.

Dr. Hogan received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, specialising in personality assessment. He served as McFarlin Professor and chair of the Department of Psychology at The University of Tulsa for 17 years. He co-founded Hogan Assessments in 1987.
