High-Potential Leader : How to Grow Fast, Take on New Responsibilities, and Make an Impact (Hardcover)
About this item
Companies need High Potential leaders more than ever before. Markets are increasingly global. Change is rapid, in everything from technology to management practice itself. In this turbulent environment, businesses are fighting fiercely to acquire and develop the best of the best talent. If you meet the Hi-Po criteria, you're in a golden age.
Criteria for hi-pos are changing markedly. In the past, people were tapped mainly because of their cognitive abilities, analytical skills, imagination, thoroughness in finding solutions and even your perfectionist tendencies. In the new climate, other attributes will count more heavily: relationship skills, experience, judgment, abilities to engage, motivate, and draw out the best performance in others, your strategic skills and even your personal habits and behavior style. Above all, companies see HiPos as people who have the capacity to grow quickly and step into new leadership roles competently. Some people are high potential individuals, some are high potential leaders. The difference is huge, and will point you to different career paths. This book will be a step by step guide to becoming a high potential leader.
