Four Key Questions for Identifying Key Talent

clipped from

How do you find talent within your organization? We have a few questions we ask each of our success center directors each year.

First, we go through each employee in their team and ask, “Would you enthusiastically rehire this person?”

Second, “If you had ten people and you could only keep nine, who would you move and why?”

Third, “If you could only keep two people in your group, who would you absolutely keep?”

Fourth, “If you could get anyone in the company from somewhere else, who would it be?”

But, identifying those things is only the first step. The second step is further developing that talent, and we work hard at this.
Lee saw what could become of Colt McCoy in the seventh grade and, together with Colt’s dad and several high school and college coaches, was able to bring out that talent. Colt has since been a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist and set a record for more wins than any other quarterback in the history of college football.
