Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic uses science and tech to help organizations predict human performance. His most recent work has looked at two questions: Why is it so easy for incompetent men to become leaders? And why is it so hard for competent people — especially competent women — to advance? Although men make up a majority of leaders, they underperform when compared with female leaders. When competent women — and men who don’t fit the stereotype — are unfairly overlooked, we all suffer the consequences. The result is a deeply flawed system that rewards arrogance rather than humility, and loudness rather than wisdom.
Born and raised in the Villa Freud district of Buenos Aires, Tomas has spent most of his professional career in London and is now based in Brooklyn. Tomas is currently the Chief Innovation Officer at ManpowerGroup, co-founder of Deeper Signals and Metaprofiling, and Professor of Business Psychology at University College London and Columbia University. His book I, Human: AI, Automation, and the Quest to Reclaim What Makes Us Unique was featured on the Thinkers50 Best New Management Booklist in 2023.
