How to go about ensuring a talent pipeline for aspiring Managers?
The late Steve Jobs of Apple summed up talent’s importance with this advice:
“Go after the cream of the cream. A small team of A+ players can run circles around a giant team of B and C players.”
Management guru Jim Collins concurred:
“… the single biggest constraint on the success of my organization is the ability to get and to hang on to enough of the right people.”
So how do we ensure a talent pipeline of aspiring Managers?
Plan – make sure this is aligned to the company’s strategy and values
Attract - individuals who align to your brand
Assess - a leader’s performance and values before placement
Develop – an integrated overall development plan for all employees, rather than singling our individuals
Reward - non-cash forms of recognition can serve as a powerful retention tool
