  1. -03-10-09 Study: Power Breeds Competence (
      "Power breeds competence, not corruption, according to a new study in the May issue of Psychological Science. The study, a collaboration between U.S. and Dutch researchers, finds that if people feel powerful in their roles, they may be less likely to make on-the-job errors — like administering the wrong medication to a patient. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the study suggests that people at the bottom of the workplace totem pole don't end up there for lack of ability, but rather that being low and powerless in a hierarchy leads to more mistakes." 03-09

  10. Hiring for Executive Intelligence (Harvard Business School)
      "It turns out that the best way to predict how well people will write essays in the future is to test them using an essay format today. In other words, to most accurately predict someone's performance, you must closely mimic the context in which the individual will have to perform."

      "The same holds true in the office. Executives exchange information through conversations, questions are posed, and decisions are made on the fly. The most accurate predictor of business performance would have to imitate these dynamics, and human evaluators are far and away the best judges of such interactions."

      "Rather than concentrating on academic subjects, executive intelligence tests should focus on the particular cognitive subjects associated with executive work: accomplishing tasks, working with and through others, and judging oneself." 12-05

  14. Nurturing Minority Executive Success (Harvard Business School)
      "Companies stand to benefit enormously if they can learn to nurture and support the cultural capital that minority professionals routinely develop outside work. Our research reveals four ways companies can discover and leverage these hidden skills: Companies need to build a greater awareness of the invisible lives of their minority professionals; they need to appreciate and try to lighten the outsize burdens these professionals carry; they must build trust in their ranks by putting teeth into diversity goals and encouraging more latitude in leadership style; and they should finish the job of leadership development begun in minorities' off-hours activities so that those nascent skills can make a difference to workplace performance and competitive strength." 12-05

  15. Study Reveals Important Personality Characteristic: Conscientiousness (
      "…conscientiousness was the trait that best predicted workplace success. What intrigues Roberts about conscientiousness is that it predicts so many outcomes that go far beyond the workplace. People high in conscientiousness get better grades in school and college; they commit fewer crimes; and they stay married longer. They live longer – and not just because they smoke and drink less. They have fewer strokes, lower blood pressure, and a lower incidence of Alzheimer’s disease."

      However, "...we show that the negative association between expressing creative ideas and leadership potential is robust and underscores an important but previously unidentified bias against selecting effective leaders."

      "...we should all be concerned that our system may be too extreme in rewarding conscientiousness and punishing creativity." 05-16

  16. Supply Chain-Driven Innovation (Harvard Business School)
      "More and more, direct customer input is driving every aspect of innovation, from the overall product concept to the timing of the launch to packaging and delivery. In this emerging world of demand-driven innovation, the supply chain plays a crucial part: It must not only be resilient and cost-effective, it must be able to respond directly to customer needs, even as those needs are continually shifting. And it must be able to reduce lead times to the bare minimum." 12-05

  20. Using the Law to Strategic Advantage (Harvard Business School)
      "Most managers think the legal department is that office down the hall where they go to keep out of trouble or write a binding patent agreement. And that's shortsighted, says Harvard Business School professor Constance Bagley. A company that makes proactive use of the law not only manages corporate risk, but also enhances shareholder value." 12-05

  21. Visionary Leaders (
      "Great Vision. I once asked a group of managers to define a leader. 'A person with vision' was a typical response. Productive narcissists understand the vision thing particularly well, largely because they are by nature people who see the big picture. They are not analyzers who can break up big questions into manageable problems; they aren’t number crunchers either (these are typically the obsessives). Nor do they try to extrapolate to understand the future—they attempt to create it. To paraphrase George Bernard Shaw, some people see things as they are and ask why; narcissists see things that never were and ask why not." 11-07

  22. Why Some Are So Ambitious (
      "If humans are an ambitious species, it's clear we're not the only one. Many animals are known to signal their ambitious tendencies almost from birth. Even before wolf pups are weaned, they begin sorting themselves out into alphas and all the others." 01-10
