The High-Potential Talent Development Guide
SIGMA’s High-Potential Talent Development Guide outlines a straightforward process for developing individuals within the organization who have been identified as top talent.
This guide will walk you through SIGMA’s 4 step talent development process. It also contains practical tips and templates for each stage, including:
- Review Talent
- Assess Talent
- Build Capacity
- Develop Skills
Lunch and Learns
If you’re looking for convenient, efficient, practical talent development support, check out SIGMA’s Lunch and Learns. Lunch and Learns are one-hour virtual seminars that focus on developing a specific competency. Each seminar is taught by one of SIGMA’s expert talent development consultants, and includes:
- An introduction to the leadership competency in the session
- An evidence-based breakdown of the competency’s components
- Practical tips on how to develop these leadership skills and apply them in the workplace
- Access to slides and additional resources following the seminar (executive summaries, worksheets, etc.)
Lunch and Learns are built for organizations looking to bolster their talent development process or those looking to begin building one from the ground up. They are also great for developing large groups on a small budget!
Assessments for Talent Development
Leadership assessments are powerful tools for talent development. They are also incredibly versatile. Leadership assessments can be used to uncover potential, identify strengths, identify opportunities for growth, increase self-awareness, and provide a foundation for structured talent development programs. For more information about how you can use assessments to support your talent development efforts, take a look at SIGMA’s flagship leadership assessment, the Leadership Skills Profile – Revised™ (LSP-R).
