Podcast with Mirella Kleijnen during the customer journey
How can you, as a company, make marketing personal and effective based on the customer journey? Mirella Kleijnen, among others, discusses this in a podcast by Adformatie.
Mirella Kleijnen
The customer journey is a much discussed topic in marketing. How can you ensure that the journey becomes personal and efficient thanks to the right marketing? In six episodes, various marketers and leaders from the field talk about digital and data-driven marketing. The third episode feautured Mirella Kleijnen (professor of customer experience management at VU University Amsterdam), Diederik den Dekker (Picnic growth team) and Reynder Bruyns (head of digital strategy iProspect). Their advice: keep in touch with the consumer, always approach it personally, and make use of technological developments. And, as Kleijnen says, "Sometimes you have to tell the customer what the customer should do."

You can listen to the podcast (in Dutch) here.
Playing the trump card: Why we select overconfident leaders and why it matters
Why do incompetent people become leaders?
Janneke Oostrom
A study by Richard Ronay, Janneke Oostrom, Nale Lehmann-Willenbrock, Samuel Mayoral and Hannes Rusch published in Leadership Quarterly suggests the answer is overconfidence, which is an exaggerated perception of one's abilities. Across five studies, this article shows that overconfident people signal behaviors that help them get selected into leadership roles. These effects are very robust: even when assessors are confronted with cues of low competence, overconfidence still has a positive effect on perceptions of leadership potential. Read article here.
