Understanding the difference between high potential vs high performer employees makes a huge difference to your organization’s performance over time. A high potential employee provides nearly double the value to an organization, and they’re three times more likely to be successful leaders in the future, according to Gartner research. While both want more challenge, high-potentials place high value on greater authority, the ability to have influence, the desire to have an impact, increased responsibility for others, and higher status. It's important that they see themselves as moving up the ladder.

High-performers, on the other hand, will seek more challenge within their area of expertise. They want to be better at what they know and do, and be recognized and rewarded for that deeper subject matter expertise. 

In this webinar we will explore how to:

  • Recognize the differences between high potential and high performing leaders,
  • Address the confusion between the two, which can create negative impacts on performance and culture,
  • Develop design objectives for targeting each group to maximize value, and
  • Position the difference so that they are clearly understood.   This is essential in all aspects of effective talent development from recruiting and hiring, capability development and promotion, and succession and organization resilience.
