The leaders of tomorrow are out there. The goal is to find, coach, and cultivate them as early as possible in their careers. So how can you determine someone’s potential as a leader, and what are the next steps to take to reach their full potential? Here are leadership skills to look for, how to focus on development, and plan for assessments that test their skills and abilities.
Some people are born leaders. Others work very hard to achieve their skills to lead teams and people. It doesn’t matter where someone has developed their skills, but how they use them is more important. Some of the common traits of strong leaders include:
Developing these skills in young leaders will help build the leadership of tomorrow.
As you manage a team, you begin to see these traits emerge in people with the ability to lead. What’s important now is knowing how to cultivate that experience and nurture it. Start by recognizing potential and be sure to look at all levels of your organization. Provide opportunities for career development and leadership training. Pair people early in their careers with experienced mentors who can help them develop their skills. Coach them and provide support. And, of course, reward their hard work.
