“The Role of The Psychologist Behind the Camera in Reality TV: Where Assessment Meets Casting”

Psychologists have enjoyed expanding roles in the field of entertainment. When we think of psychologists in entertainment, we tend to think of Dr. Phil and other on-camera psychologists. However, a growing number of psychologists have begun working behind the scenes in both scripted and unscripted (reality) TV. Information based on 20 years of experience working in reality TV with dozens of shows including Big Brother Canada, Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelor Canada, The Amazing Race Canada, MasterChef Canada, Scare Tactics, Blown Away, and many, many more will be shared. In this presentation I will outline the growing genre of reality TV, dispel some myths, and speak to the role of show psychologists. Relevant to organizational psychology is the psychologist’s role in cast selection and the similarities/differences to assessment and selection in organizational settings at large. One difference, for example, is that you usually learn the success of your predictions in 10 weeks or less. The role reality TV plays in influencing audiences on social issues as well as some of the ethical and practical issues will also be discussed.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Learn about candidate selection in a high-profile industry.
  2. Discover how different branches of psychology interact in selection/casting
  3. See the connection between social psychology field studies and reality TV
  4. Find out how this genre of TV can influence millions of people on social issues
  5. Explore some of the ethical issues involved in these high-stake selections

2:00-3:20 PM Tech Demo
Sponsor: Hogan Assessment Systems

“Redefine Executive Coaching with the Hogan Leadership Experience”

Developing and coaching leaders without assessment is akin to allowing a physician to treat elite athletes without conducting any diagnostic medical tests. Yet even when an assessment is used in leadership development, most of the products available today are:

  • too generalized and lack impact,
  • abstract, complex, and difficult to action; or
  • fun, flashy, and flimsy.

The Hogan Leadership Experience (HLX) is a new product that reimagines top executives’ experience with assessments, coaching, and development. This bespoke technology reinvents science-driven executive coaching and ultimately redefines leadership itself. Seamlessly integrated into talent management initiatives, HLX will fuel more effective development planning and long-lasting behavior change. Join our tech demonstration to see how Hogan is using interactive technology and the science of personality to empower leaders to build higher-performing teams.
