While all companies need to recruit from the outside, the best ones retain their top leadership talent and reduce the vast costs of replacing employees — a figure that stretches into the tens of millions of dollars for large-cap companies. The challenge, however, is identifying your highest potential leaders. Common approaches to talent identification and succession planning tend to be overly focused on current top performers and people who seem to be the biggest movers and shakers in the organization. However, clarity about leadership success, accurate measurement of potential, and analytics allow us to key in on often overlooked areas and discover leadership talent that may be hiding in plain sight. Taking a closer look at these things might uncover leaders you never knew you had and key players who are not being utilized to their fullest potential.
