How Unqualified Men Get Hired Over Qualified Women

Qualities that land people leadership roles – overconfidence, narcissism – are often the same qualities that stand in the way of leadership. And it’s worth pointing out that the majority of our leaders are men. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, professor of business psychology at University College, London, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the psychological miscalculations at play with these bad hiring decisions. His new book is called “Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders? (And How to Fix It)” (Harvard Business Review Press).
