As one of the most important sectors needing true engagement, high potentials (Hi-Pos) come with a big development price tag and high hopes of future leadership. Defined as someone with the ability to succeed in senior level positions, high potentials are critical to the future of any organization. Studies at the Corporate Executive Board find that relative to the broader workforce, high potentials are almost twice as valuable to an organization, and are three times more likely to succeed as future leaders, but their numbers have dropped by at least 48% in recent years.
How do we keep this essential group engaged and on the golden road to organizational devotion? Research generally shows that Hi-Pos want career development that incorporates marketable skills, leadership coaching, a true connection to their company and its brand, and an understanding of how they personally fit into the success of the organization. These are some the main ingredients needed to develop and engage your future management team, but what have other organizations done to achieve this and which tools and strategies that actually made a difference? Find out in this exciting session the newest online tools and processes that make the biggest impact in your Hi-Po programs and development.
You will learn:
- How to indentify high performance individuals and what keeps them motivated to do more
- How to work with mangers of Hi-Po’s and provide them with proven strategies and skills that allow them to successfully manage this group while keeping them engaged
- How to increase your Hi-Po’s engagement levels with online and enterprise tools that make it easy for them to do the development work and remain connected to the program and the organization
