Do you tell individuals at your organization that they are designated as high-potential leaders? Whether to inform nominees of their high-potential status is a difficult question. Some organizations hold back, fearing egos will take over, people will stop trying to prove their worth, and start acting entitled. Others argue that transparency is critical to organization success. To tell or not tell is one of the first questions people ask when they’re developing their high-potential strategy.

Join us for a discussion moderated by The Conference Board where you will:

  • Explore benefits and risks of informing high-potential leaders of their status
  • Hear the research behind the recommended approach
  • Learn guidelines and best practices to communicate with your high-potential leaders

Audience: Executives responsible for succession management in their organizations with the majority coming from human resources, leadership development, talent and global talent management, training and development, and employee development
