Hunting down high-potential talent and future leaders
Description: THE BLEAK STATE OF LEADERSHIP
Leaders drive companies, create and deliver on a vision, and prepare for the future by empowering tomorrow’s leaders. Without good leadership, companies rarely move forward. But the current state of leadership is bleak. According to a study by the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flager Business School, 85% of global companies report an urgent need for employees with leadership potential, aka high-potential (HiPo) talent. The problem is, only 40% say their current high-potentials can meet their future
business needs and just 21% are satisfied with the bench strength of their future leaders.
