Many ‘high-potential’ managers already demonstrate fair proficiency in skills around driving results and collaborating with both internal & external stakeholders. Many also demonstrate a fair degree of understanding of the broader strategic context.

However, a large section needs further assistance to develop skills around supporting innovation & change in their teams and adopting a more customer-centric approach to decision-making.

So what should
Organizations prioritize?

Learning Programs for high-potential employees often focus on skills like Strategic Thinking, Influencing & Negotiation, and analytical tools for Decision-making.

Based on the insights presented, there may be a need for a stronger emphasis on themes around supporting self and teams through change, building innovation orientation in the team, and effective conflict management.
