How do we identify high potential?
We all know that identifying and retaining the high potentials in our organisation is crucial for business success. However, in contrast to performance assessment, how to identify and assess potential is often not as clear.
Companies often misinterpret high performance for high potential and rely solely on their leader’s observation or instinct about the identification of high potential. The fact is, that despite tools and processes, identifying someone’s ability and willingness to deliver and grow in a longer perspective can sometimes seem like an impossible task that in the end is based more on intuition than on our concepts and data.
Insights from different talent management practices
Everyone working with Talent Management knows that there is not one right method for identifying and retaining high potential, but that does not mean that we cannot strengthen our approach by sharing experiences.
