HiPo development is a crucial priority for every growing or changing organization. Organizations that take employee development and particularly High-Potential employee development seriously out-perform their competitors!
Did you know that organizations with a strong employee and High-Potential development program are:
- 46% more likely to be the first to market
- 26% more likely to deliver quality products
- 37% more likely to benefit from employee productivity
- 48% more likely to be prepared to meet future demands
- 17% more likely to be the market leader
*According to the 2010, Bersin Study of organizations who make learning & development a priority.
When we work with companies we find that the biggest challenge HR leaders face is time to truly systemize their HiPo development program. They find that it’s necessary to skip steps in order to just get their employee development programs off the ground. Unfortunately, when a HiPo program fails to deliver, the blame all too often falls on HR’s shoulders, when in fact, there was poor accountability or manager involvement, or some other critical component!
The good news is we can leverage best-practices to avoid mistakes and ensure HiPo program success. In this webinar we will start with making it simple. There are four steps:
Research shows that somewhere between half to two-thirds of all programs fail to deliver for both the individual and the organization. Some programs fail to develop the right people or fail to consider the importance of participant buy-in or fail to map the competencies of the future role to the key competency development gaps of the HiPo. And, there’s SO Many fantastic case-studies and research on what works and what doesn’t! We plan to share the best practices in the four steps above and the worst practices.
It's easy to agree - investing in the right people in your organization will maximize returns. Additionally, I bet we can agree really talented employees are often force multipliers; meaning they often raise the bar for their peers and other employees.
And, yet, many companies still take employee development for granted or more precisely, fail to formalize their approach to identifying, developing, and retaining star talent. Talent pipelines are often akin to last-minute raffles. Who's left to win the seat?
The challenge and the opportunity is to commit to a strategic employee development process that makes sure your organization has the right pipeline with good people and that their needs are being met with ongoing development and performance feedback opportunities.
There's one special bonus this webinar will address! Identifying your real HiPos in this VUCA world of ours, requires recognizing a key indicator of real potential is the employee's "Learning Agility" competency.
Learning Agility, is described as adaptability, flexibility, comfort with ambiguity, the ability to learn fast and furiously from the past and from the experiences of others, and finally, the ability to trust that when we don't know what to do, we'll figure out what to do. Yes, just as EQ (Emotional Intelligence) is a sign of a real keeper - so is Learning Agility! - Anisa Aven, NLPC, BCC, CEO of TurnKey Coaching & Development Solutions & Webinar Emcee
