HR tools and pseudo-science

If you are involved in HR and you understand Dutch, then please take the time to view this blistering talk by Patrick Vermeren, founder of Performance Coaching ( He gave the presentation at the 2011 annual meeting of SKEPP, the Belgian association for the sceptical evalutation of pseudo-science and paranormal claims.

Patrick vigorously denounces the scientific aura that hangs around much of the popular HR tools such as MBTI, NLP, Kolb's Cycle, Equicoaching, ...) and points the way to evidence-based solutions which do exist and present an actual interest for HR development.

Highly recommended!
