John-Luke McCord, MA
Consultant, Organizational Development

Evidence-based and data-driven decision making are vital to allow top organizations to flourish. With a breadth of research experience in organizational psychology, Mr. McCord recognizes the value of continuous immersion and application of up-to-date literature and studies in the field of psychology.

Prior to joining Xecutive Metrix, Mr. McCord found his passion in industrial/organizational psychology. He has conducted a variety of research in areas such as management, strategy, cohesion, motivation, and personality assessment. His research has included investigating how differences in compensation among team members influences their interpersonal relationships, examining how employee motivation fluctuates over time, and conducting seminal work in exploring alternative ways of approaching personality assessment to boost engagement. 


Mr. McCord has bridged two bodies of research that each have a significant impact on management practice with his dissertation on risk taking as a compound personality trait. Compound traits are unique combinations of known personality characteristics and smaller aspects of those characteristics. Compound traits are especially advantageous in their ability to predict organizational outcomes more accurately than any individual characteristic. The involvement of risk taking in management and leadership is inevitable and conceptualizing risk taking as a compound personality trait enables a more accurate understanding of the construct, allowing us to better recognize its role in leadership development.


Mr. McCord is passionate about innovative practices in an ever-changing business environment, putting him in an excellent position to enable organizational leadership to perform at the highest level.
