Hogan was honored to host a special event on May 21 featuring Stanford University Professor Michal Kosinski, a world-renowned data scientist and psychologist.

Remember Cambridge Analytica? You know, the political consulting firm that mined personal data from Facebook users without their consent to influence the 2016 Presidential Election? Well, Kosinski was the data scientist who first demonstrated one’s Facebook “likes” can predict their personality better than friends or family.

Kosinski had been warning the public of the risks and challenges brought by the digital revolution long before Cambridge Analytica’s inception, and he turned down an opportunity to work with the organization because of the legal and ethical implications that were inevitably to follow. Since then, his research has been brought to the forefront, including a cover story for The Economist, an interview with Fareed Zakaria to discuss the role of big data in the 2016 election, and he authored an op-ed in the New York Times about how Facebook sells data despite its claims.

Have you ever taken a Buzzfeed quiz to tell you what Harry Potter house you’re in? Or maybe what character from The Office you are most like? How much weight do you put on the results of those quizzes? Would you want companies making hiring decisions based on similar assessments?

In March, Hogan Senior Research Consultant Karen Fuhrmeister gave a TEDx Talk at the University of Tulsa on “The Science Behind Hiring Assessments: It’s Not a Waste of Time.” The talk aimed to inform students and other attendees about the use of personality assessments in the workplace, and how this trend isn’t going away any time soon. In fact, it’s becoming more and more likely that those going through the interviews will be asked to take one of these assessments.

In the final analysis, business is about money and people. By definition, successful private equity firms understand finance, but on average they tend to be less sophisticated about people issues. This makes sense: deal partners and analysts are trained in finance and are good at spotting undervalued assets. But savvy private equity players also understand that reviving an underperforming business depends to a large degree on people issues—in particular, it depends on the leadership of the portfolio company and its working relationship with new ownership.

Considerable evidence suggests that PE firms could do a better job evaluating the ability of the leadership team in their acquired companies. A New Balance Women's WX624v2 Training Shoe B007OWZUUW 6.5 D US|White found that nearly three-quarters of portfolio company CEOs are removed during the investment life cycle. Over half are replaced in the first two years; but only 15% are replaced at the outset. These data suggest that, for 4 out of the 5 replaced CEOs, the decision takes too long, thereby delaying strategic milestones and prolonging the hold time.

The theme of the event is “New Leadership? Authentic in Turbulent Times,” and aims to provide an opportunity for all RELEVANT and Odgers customers, partners, and friends to come together, learn from case studies, and discuss how leadership in times of continued transformation might change.

With New Work expected to change everything, leadership faces completely new challenges. It is clear that there is insecurity in executive search and selection, management development, and career planning about which success factors from the past (may) still apply in the future and where new approaches are necessary. Even current managers are asking themselves whether they are fit for the future. Therein lies the purpose of this event: What can we learn from the past and how can leaders be successful and authentic in the future?
