How to Identify Leaders Within Your Organization

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 succession planning purposes as well as for boosting retention of your high-performing employees.
Succession Planning – Identifying employees with leadership potential and preparing them to step into leadership roles helps ensure that your organization has the ability and agility to deal with openings in higher-level positions when they are expected as well as when they are unexpected.
Retention – Top performers want to work for organizations where their talents and contributions are recognized, and where they have the potential to advance. When high performers with leadership potential are identified and have opportunities to be groomed for advancement, it can have a positive impact on their decision to stay with your organization.
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.
