Companies need high potential leaders (Hi-Pos) more than ever before to help them adapt to today’s tumultuous, digitally-driven business environment. If you meet the Hi-Po criteria, you’re in high demand – and this book explains how to fast-track yourself.
Criteria for Hi-Pos are changing markedly. In the past, fast-track leaders were tapped mainly because of their cognitive abilities, analytical skills, imagination, thoroughness in finding solutions, and even 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, strategic skills and even personal habits and behavior style. Above all, companies see Hi-Pos as people who have the capacity to grow quickly and step into new leadership roles competently. This book is a step-by-step guide to becoming a high potential leader.
