Prepping High-Potential Employees for Leadership Roles: How to Identify, Assess, Develop, and Engage HiPOs - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

Learn why developing HiPos is one of the best things you can do for your organization’s success and how to identify and assess potential leaders.


It’s estimated that just one in seven high performers are high-potential employees (HiPOs). And, promoting the wrong person to fill a position is more than just a personnel mistake. The decision can have serious financial and other short- and long-term consequences for an organization.

At a minimum, simply replacing an employee can cost between 100 and 300 percent of their salary, and for senior executives, the cost can exceed 400 percent.

In the long run, however, the costs can be even higher if ineffective leadership or succession disruption prevents a company from meeting its business goals. Identifying and investing in HiPOs employees can have multiple benefits—including raising the bar for those employees’ coworkers and ultimately helping your organization to outperform the competition.

And, identifying and assessing these star employees is of critical importance to organizations’ long-term business success. It’s important to properly prepare them for future leadership roles is, and when you’ve got a strong pipeline of candidates who are prepared to take leadership roles when necessary, the task of managing succession when leaders leave the organization is easier and disruptions from sudden vacancies are minimized.

Use this on-demand webinar with talent management and organizational assessment expert Darleen DeRosa, Ph.D., who will share real-life examples on the best practices for identifying, assessing, and developing high potential employees in your workplace.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Communicate to the C-suite on the business case for investing in your high potential employees
  • Identify the success profile of high potential employees
  • Establish a program to identify and assess talent within your organization for high potential employees
  • Use the foundations other companies have already set up high potential acceleration programs
  • Plan strategies to nurture and develop your HiPos
  • And much more!
