How can you help your superstar employees fulfill their potential and become the next generation of leaders? 

Here are three strategies for motivating and developing your top high potential employees.

Measure key leadership competencies. 

Identify where your high-potential employees are already strong and where they can continue to grow in key leadership competencies like team management, relationship building, and communication.

Help boost their emotional intelligence.

Focus on helping superstars hone self-awareness and empathy through feedback, assessments, practicing active listening and inquiry and by acknowledging different perspectives.

Encourage a learning mindset

Becoming a leader requires growth beyond technical expertise. Leaders need to be able to operate in multiple contexts and be able to adapt their approach accordingly. Encourage your high-potential employees to learn continuously by taking on projects and work outside their comfort zone.
