How to spot leadership talent

  • Take responsibility.  It’s easy to blame other people but it shows maturity and leadership when someone takes responsibility and action for their mistakes.
  • Do something with feedback.  People who not only listen to feedback, but take action on what you’ve mentioned 
  • Self aware.  Surrounding themselves with people who are smarter than them and can help them learn and grow
  • Celebrate others.  Aren’t a credit hoarder and share the credit with the people who were part of the process with them.
  • Empower! Once you spot that talent, it’s vital to empower them and prepare them for their future within the organization. Take the time to recognize your talent.
