On-demand Broadcast: Your High-potential Leaders: Tell or Don’t Tell?

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 decisions to be made when developing a high-potential strategy.
