Webinar: Finding Authentic High Potential Talent in the Crowd: Where’s Waldo?

All talent is valuable, but all talent is not created equal. High-potential employees not only deserve extra attention, they require it. They must be developed differently, engaged differently, and deployed differently. Research indicates that about 40% of high potentials stall or derail soon after they're identified. Predictions about future success are abysmal. False positives are common. Many or most managers are incapable of distinguishing between performance and potential. This session reviews research and provides a framework to accurately identify high potential talent, accelerate their development, and retain these critical employees.

Who Should Attend:

  • Hiring managers
  • HR and talent acquistion leaders
  • Company executives
