Workplace Application: This session will show you how using assessments to measure characteristics that contribute to potential and growth will help you identify and develop high-potential candidates.

The growing global economy has strengthened the need for effective leadership at all levels. “Baby Boomer” retirements, recession-driven downsizing, and the demand for a highly skilled workforce are fueling a “war for talent” in which the organization with the best workforce wins. As a result, companies increasingly recognize the value in identifying, developing, and retaining high potential employees. In support of these efforts, assessments may be used to predict leader effectiveness and guide individual development plans. At the end of this session you will learn how to select assessment tools to help in the process of identifying and developing high-potentials as well as understand how assessment results can be used to facilitate individual development planning.
