Talent Identification

Identifying talent for development requires not only an accurate evaluation of their current performance, but their potential to fulfill the requirements of more demanding positions. It is hard enough for organizations to get a handle on measuring performance, let alone potential. Oftentimes performance and potential are confused, or considered to be one and the same.

We can help you understand the differences between these constructs and how best to measure them. Performance management strategies and systems are a good first step. But if you can’t accurately measure the performance of your employees, how can you possibly measure their potential?

Measures of high potential can be accomplished using many different methods, including:

  • Competency model development
  • Multi-rater (360) surveys
  • Assessment Centers simulations
  • Psychometric testing
  • Interviews with key personnel
  • Comprehensive evaluations (see Executive Assessments)

Our firm can help you sort out these options and create a talent identification process that best fits your needs and your larger leadership development, strategic workforce planning and succession planning initiatives.
