Succession Planning: Identifying HiPos
When identifying HiPos, you’re ultimately trying to determine the likelihood that someone will become a leader within your organization. The desired skills and traits will be unique to the organization, levels of leadership, and roles you’re forecasting to fill. In this course, we’ll talk about what to look for in your HiPos, by covering some common characteristics that many organizations seek out. We’ll discuss measurable criteria you can use to find the right candidates. We’ll also go over the difference between high-potential employees and high-performing employees, including why it’s important to make that distinction.
