-- Discovery Learning, Inc. announces president and CEO Dr. Chris Musselwhite will be a featured presenter at the 21st World Human Resources Development (HRD) Congress. The World HRD Congress takes place February 15 – 17, 2013 in Mumbai, India.
Based on Dr. Musselwhite’
s World HRD Congress presentation, Discovery Learning is offering visitors to its website (https//:www.discoverylearning.com)
two free downloadable leadership guides: "The 5 Leadership Pitfalls to Avoid Now" and "2013 Mission Critical Leadership Skills." The guides provide important insights into the assessment, development and deployment of great leaders.
Emphasizing future trends, Dr. Musselwhite’
s presentation in Mumbai will examine several key characteristics of effective leadership assessment tools, including those that assess personality style and behavioral preferences.
“Revelations from neuroscience and adult learning theory, as well as today’s complex executive challenges, provide profound insights into the types of leadership assessment tools that will work in the future,” commented Dr. Musselwhite. “Also, these sources help us understand why using psychological assessments developed for clinical applications may be less than satisfactory for training and development.”
During Dr. Musselwhite’
s presentation, he will discuss the most effective leadership assessment tools, ones that result in more intentional leadership behaviors and outcomes for organizations. In addition, he will provide insights into the importance of positive positioning, specific content, non-judgmental learning models, data-based results, interactive integration, and unbiased feedback.
“By looking at data on default behaviors and mental models that drive them, we can better understand how leaders solve problems, make decisions, influence and communicate—
all of which will result in more intentional leadership behaviors and positive outcomes for organizations around the world, including multi-nationals, governments, non-profits and even start-ups,” concluded Dr. Musselwhite.About Discovery Learning
