How to Identify Leaders within Your Organization
Duration: 60 Minutes
Identifying and developing talented employees with the potential to become supervisors, department managers and possibly even members of your company's executive leadership team is a critical aspect of strategic staffing. Developing the ability to identify those with leadership potential is critical to succession planning success as well as for boosting retention of your high-performing employees.
To develop the ability to identify future leaders though, you have to know what leadership really is, along with the skills, traits and characteristics of effective leaders. That's the key to knowing what to look for when you're determining which team members have the potential to excel as leaders within your organization. Putting the right people in leadership roles is critical for organizational success, and you have to know what to look for.
People who are great employees do not necessarily have the mindset to be great leaders, and many don't even want to lead. When you put the wrong people in leadership roles, it can lead to negative consequences for the company and cause employees who are perfect fits for other types of jobs becoming frustrated and leaving because they're in roles that aren't appropriate "fits" for them.
