Forbes: How to identify early career leadership potential

Forbes Post Graphic

How can you identify budding leaders within your organization?

Hiring for a leadership position can be much easier with an internal candidate pool. That's why it's so important for leaders and HR departments to learn how to spot the seeds of leadership when someone is hired at a lower-level position so they can focus on developing that person's skills for the future.

South End Partners Founder & President, Casey Huebsch is featured in a Forbes profile sharing some proven strategies and techniques on how to identify leadership potential in the early stages of someone’s career. 

His advice? Hire individuals with high emotional intelligence.

“Look for employees with high emotional intelligence, not just technical work skills for the role they are doing. Individuals with strong emotional intelligence are able to build lasting relationships and better navigate challenges and problems. They also typically actively seek out opportunities for self-development, all of which are key factors for future leadership success.”
