Identifying the 21st Century High Potential: A Unique Combination of Skills and Performance

Please Login or Register for Free to view this webcast.


What does it mean to be High Potential in today’s talent environment?  Do organizations have the right leaders and managers to grow high potential talent?  We are in the most competitive global talent market in decades, perhaps ever, and organizations are challenged with finding the right talent, growing the talent they have, and developing high potential talent to grow and sustain the business.  The rare mix of learning agility, business acumen, and soft skills is often the base line for high potential talent coupled with that unique blend of fit and experience that makes someone a great choice and a successful leader/employee in your organization.

Truly finding and developing your stars requires understanding the unique blend of values and purpose, being connected and collaborative, building and leveraging networks, and building and sustaining relationships over time.

During this webcast we will discuss the unique mix of performance and potential markers that make up today's high potential (who will be needed to take on roles of increasing complexity and responsibility within a particular time frame, often 18-24 months), and how to identify high potentials using these markers and performance metrics. We will also look at how to define, identify, and grow high potential talent, and how to accelerate your efforts.
