Proposes that commonly used methods of selecting leaders and managers, such as résumés of experience and training, tests and interviews, do not offer accurate predictions of future leader performance. Suggests that many current selection practices are based on two flawed assumptions: that greater intelligence or experience results in better leadership performance; and that the work environment does not impact on how individuals use their abilities and skills. Argues, with reference to representative studies, that the leadership situation strongly influences the use of the leader's cognitive resources. Concludes by discussing the implications of these findings for both leadership theory and selection and training practice.
