Are you in a position where you have identified high potentials within your organisation but the reality is, there’s really nowhere for them to go? If you don’t review what your strategy is for identifying and nurturing high performers many will leave before they get an opportunity to join your leadership or senior executive team, and the reasons will be humdrum.
If you able to retain your high potential employees you know that this will strengthen the organisation at its core, and what’s more you will start building a robust leadership pipeline. If not, your talent pool becomes stagnant and you end up with, as Jim Collins puts it; “the wrong people on the bus”. If you have an office full of C players how can your organisation be performing at your true potential? It’s just not possible.
