You will gain insights into how to apply neuroscience principles to mitigate implicit bias and enhance the selection and development of key talent.  The ability to make accurate predictions about talent is a key skill for talent acquisition and recruiting professionals. Who should we hire? Promote? Who needs aggressive development? But people are complex—they will either delight or disappoint us. This session will explore the science of predicting potential; the neuroscience of personality; methods to mitigate implicit bias; and insights that will enhance the selection, development and retention of high-potential talent. This session will help you: ·         Identify research-based predictors of leadership potential. ·         Explain the role of personality in potential and the methods for assessing talent. ·         Describe methods for mitigating implicit bias in your talent selection processes.
