26 Apr 2013

Ryan Ross, the Vice President of Hogan Assessment U.S., the world leader in performance prediction based on personality assessment, comes for the first time in Romania at the sixth edition of HART HR Conference, on the theme “CEOs and organizational culture: what makes it or breaks it?”, held on the 22nd of May, at Athenee Palace Hilton Hotel.

Ryan Ross is an internationally recognized authority in the area of evaluating talent for selecting employees and leadership development.

We start from the premise that leaders are the main architects of culture. The culture of an organization starts and develops from the leader on top of it.


  • What are the ingredients of a powerful CEO?
  • There is just one prototype of successful CEO or times and strategy dictates who we need to have at the top?
  • Toxic leadership and organizational culture: when the strengths become the weaknesses
  • What should a CEO know about building high performance teams?
  • How can we accelerate the success in leadership? 
  • Gen Y – the new leadership generation
  • Women and men in leadership: about performance (case study)
  • The values of top management team and organizational culture: case study
