Do you tell individuals at your organization that they are designated as high-potential leaders? Whether to inform nominees of their high-potential status is a difficult question.
Some organizations hold back, fearing egos will take over, people will stop trying to prove their worth, and start acting entitled. Others argue that transparency is critical to organization success.
To tell or not tell is one of the first decisions to be made when you’re developing your high-potential strategy.
Attend this webinar to hear our panel of experts discuss:
Benefits and risks of informing, or not informing, high-potential leaders of their status.
The value of transparency; why the maturity level of your talent management culture matters.
Research behind each approach, and the best practices for communicating with your high-potential leaders if you tell.
Join us for a complimentary webinar hosted by the Human Capital Institute (HCI) on December 16 at 3:00 p.m. EDT to hear Korn Ferry’s Jim Peters, Senior Partner and Global Lead for Succession Management, and Cori Hill, Global Lead for High-Potential Leadership Development, discuss their experience with dozens of leading organizations. The topic will be moderated by Lisa Niesen, Senior Product Manager for High-Potential Assessments.
Leaders of today and tomorrow need to be better than the leaders they replace because the challenges are greater, the speed faster, the competition tougher, and the marketplace increasingly global. In short, the leaders of today and tomorrow must be agile leaders, resourceful in the face of change, and above all, able to learn from experience.
One of the key derailment points for high-performing talent is the transition to a new and challenging role. The trend is toward employees taking on bigger jobs at even earlier points in their career, meaning that the ambiguity and risks associated with role transitions are more significant than ever.
