Talent Tools For Potentials

We’ve cracked the code on Potential Identification. You know better than anyone — the future of your organization rests on your ability to attract, develop and retain Potentials. We know the markers and drivers of a person who can grow significantly and reach the top of an organization, because they have something different — things that most people (candidly) don’t have. Talent pipelines are difficult to manage if you can’t get past the usual credentials and identify the right stuff that makes potentials — so full of potential.

Using 100 years of experience in talent management by its authors, and 50 years of research, you can now identify, measure, and develop Potential talent. Simply put, we know the Knowledge, Skills and Attributes of Potentials (KSAP) and have put the science and our experience at your fingertips. Through unpacking 25 Practices that cover 12 Markers/Drivers of success, you will have the keys to building bench strength across all levels in an organization.
