Identify Your Top Talent – Performers and Potentials

One of the key aspects of an organization’s talent review process is the identification of top talent. While organizational leaders are often adept at identifying outstanding performers, there can be difficulty identifying employees with the most potential, thus resulting in an incomplete picture of top talent. By creating organization-specific definitions of high performance and high potential, leaders have a standard to assess their talent against. These definitions will help facilitate deeper dialogue between leaders during the talent review process and will provide insight about which employees are top talent.

For clarity, we often use the following definitions:

Performers: Those employees that excel and deliver results in their current role.
Potentials: Those employees that not only succeed in their current role but have the ability to develop skills to suit multiple future roles. These skills are often outside the “technical competence” required to be a strong individual performer.
