In terms of leadership development and culture sustainability (for good or bad), the selection of HiPo employees is probably the most important decision you’ll make as a leader. These employees are the people who you’ve identified as the next leaders.
Give top performers the most playing time and the most attention, and they’ll deliver the greatest results. Take care of your star players, and they will take care of you.
More and more organizations are reaping the benefits from offering HiPo (high-potential) programs that provide intense, targeted training for their rising-star employees. But now the stakes are even bigger.
