Business in Vancouver contacted Cissy Pau of Clear HR Consulting to write a column on developing high-potential employees for their Human Resources Quarterly section.

With many of our clients, the owner or senior managers finds it challenging to develop their next generation of leaders because of limited time for training, tight budgets, and no vacancies on the horizon.

To address this challenge, one of our clients developed a strategy which offers some best practices for others to groom their next generation of leaders:

    1. Identify key positions
    2. Identify high potential employees
    3. Communicate plans
    4. Provide opportunities for challenge and growth
    5. Involve employees in strategy sessions
    6. Introduce key contacts
    7. Encourage conference attendance
