Speed Read: Assessing Potential
How to spot, assess and develop high potential future leaders is one of the key challenges for talent management today. Assessing potential leadership qualities and putting a successful programme in place to help with effective development can be challenging.
Download this Speed Read from Corporate Research Forum to access the key take-aways from our report - Assessing Potential - authored by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic and Gillian Pillans.
In this Speed Read, we explore the following questions.
- What do we mean by ‘potential’
- Can we predict who is likely to be an effective future leader and, if so, how?
- What should we be looking for when we are assessing potential? How do we tie this to the business strategy?
- How should we support and develop the careers of those we identify as ‘high potential’
- How do we know if our high potential programme is working?
The report concludes with recommendation for HR professionals on how to increase the return on investment from your high potential programmes.
