I love the idea of ‘talent acceleration’ or ‘talent multiplier’ from Jay Conger and Allan Church. Their message is specifically for high potentials – those who want to be ear-marketed for greatness within their organizations: ‘if you ‘fail to develop your reports’ potential, you will fail to develop your own’.
To perform you need others to perform – your success depends on how well you can develop the potential of the people that work with and for you.
Multiplying Talent: How good are your managers at it:
The ability of leaders to multiply or accelerate talent – to bring out the best in their people and unlock their latent potential – is measured by Pitstop Analytics™. Specifically, it measure the ratio of performance to potential (called the P2P Metric™ ) for leaders and their teams, identifying ways in which performance potential can be unlocked.
