Description

Hannes Leroy, Associate Professor at the Department of Organisation and Personnel Management, has been mentioned in an article. The article discusses the bias toward people seen as leaders or managers when assessing top-level job candidates. Leadership is often loved for personal, historical, and ideological reasons rather than any direct connection to the facts of a situation. Hannes Lerow states that "this preference may come at the high cost of failing to appreciate the value of management in many situations."
