Leadership Potential

Why high-potential programs aren’t working

65% of companies have high-potential programs.

68% say they’re not very effective.

The lost promise of leadership potential

Until now, the quest to capitalize on leadership potential has been about identifying the “haves and have nots.” High-potential programs have enabled many organizations to target the growth of small groups of high-potential leaders, often with positive results.

But as the pace of business increases, this strategy is falling short. Transforming potential into meaningful business results requires far more than picking and choosing people who meet a precise profile. To compete in a world of constant change, organizations must completely re-think their strategy and broaden their efforts to develop and unleash potential.

When it comes to potential, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Join us for a webinar on The Lost Promise of Leadership Potential.

It’s not about leaders. It’s about leadership.

Leadership is about behavior, regardless of a person’s title or where they fall in the company hierarchy. As organizations face new and unfamiliar challenges, success depends on increasing the frequency of leadership behavior from individuals and teams across the organization to ensure that the organization can deploy the right leadership at the right moment for the right context. So instead of redefining criteria and isolating a small group of “heroes,” the challenge is to understand and unleash the largest source of potential: The entire workforce.

How DDI is unleashing leadership potential

Our approach moves beyond high-potential strategies by taking a holistic view of potential that goes far beyond simply identifying leadership potential among individuals. Instead, we aim to surface, activate, and accelerate potential in individuals, within teams, and across the full force of the organization.
