Harvard Business Review | How to Spot High-Potential Talent in Your Organization
Companies struggle to identify their next-gen leaders, and for good reasons.
When you don’t know what the future will bring, how do you figure out who has — or can acquire — the right strengths to meet those challenges?
Businesses typically look to past performance to identify future leaders. This is the case in hiring entry-levels as well as in identifying potential leaders internally.
But someone’s past doesn’t tell you who might excel at things they haven’t done before, nor does it identify early-career high potentials or people who haven’t had equitable access to mentoring, sponsorship, development, and advancement opportunities.
Instead, to identify future leaders you need Human Potential Analytics, which enable you to look deeper into the person’s behavioral impact factors: their cognitive, emotional/interpersonal, drive/motivation, learning/growth, and creative/innovation factors.
