There’s no doubt that for many high performers, the ultimate goal is to reach the c-suite, whether that involves smashing through glass ceilings or clambering up greasy poles in the process.
With such motivation to succeed, it can be easy for recruiters to mistake passion and ambition for capability and behavioural fit. We read weekly how senior figures fall foul of their own temperaments. Some find their assumed-private comments plastered over the press and social media. Others simply have a management style at odds with the rest of the leadership team that can only end one way. Badly.
Ian Cameron, MD of The McQuaig Institute, explains in conversation with Financier Worldwide how a behavioural assessment tool such as the McQuaig Psychometric System helps to clarify the qualities required for success at the top.
