#1 Talent Strategy Doesn’t Automatically Support Business Goals 6 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#1 Talent Strategy Doesn’t Automatically Support Business Goals You may have the positioning, the capital, and the processes to accomplish business outcomes, but without the needed quantity and quality of talent, execution simply won’t happen. 7 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#1 Talent Strategy Doesn’t Automatically Support Business Goals Start by answering some critical questions: • What future challenges will leaders need to address? • What kind of leaders do you need and how many? • What knowledge, skills, experience, and personal attributes will be critical to their success? 8 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#2 Talent Management Isn’t (Just) Succession Planning 9 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#2 Talent Management Isn’t (Just) Succession Planning Here is how to make the jump with your CEO to a broader talent management strategy. 10 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#2 Talent Management Isn’t (Just) Succession Planning Focus on the critical positions and key players to support leadership transitions at every level. 11 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#2 Talent Management Isn’t (Just) Succession Planning Direct your energy at building a pipeline of ready leaders, not just matching individuals to specific roles. 12 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#2 Talent Management Isn’t (Just) Succession Planning Don’t treat all roles alike—there are business-critical roles that are harder to fill and where lower performance will have the largest consequence. 13 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything 14 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything It’s easy to confuse performance, potential, and readiness, so it’s important to note the distinction between them. 15 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything Performance is how someone is performing in their current role. 16 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything Potential is someone’s likelihood for leadership growth. 17 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything Readiness is someone’s fit with a specific role or job. 18 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything Confusing these will lead to bad decisions about talent. 19 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything For example, someone performing successfully in their current job, may not be ready for a role at the next level. 20 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#3 Potential Isn’t Everything Identifying someone with potential is only part of the equation—they may still not be ready for the role and will benefit from development to fill those readiness gaps. 21 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#4 Your Eye for Talent Isn’t That Good 22 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#4 Your Eye for Talent Isn’t That Good Your CEO may be very confident about spotting talent. But talent decisions have to be about more than judgment. 23 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#4 Your Eye for Talent Isn’t That Good Organizations are complex and CEOs don’t have as many opportunities to work with people as they may have in a prior role. So judgments are made on a few interactions. 24 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#4 Your Eye for Talent Isn’t That Good Look for more objective data to uncover talent capability and gaps when it comes to promotion decisions. 25 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#5 All Leaders Should Be Responsible for Developing Their People—and They Need the Skills To Do It Start by thinking of your leaders as talent advocates. 27 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#5 All Leaders Should Be Responsible for Developing Their People—and They Need the Skills To Do It They may have bypassed key career transitions, leaving them with leadership skill deficits—so don’t let them place this as a low priority. 28 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#5 All Leaders Should Be Responsible for Developing Their People—and They Need the Skills To Do It So what should you expect from senior leaders? 29 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV. All rights reserved.

#5 All Leaders Should Be Responsible for Developing Their People—and They Need the Skills To Do It If every leader has the skills to: • • • • • Scout for potential Have meaningful performance discussions Coach for success Build creative development plans Make effective hiring and promotion decisions Then talent management processes will have momentum of their own. 30 © Development Dimensions International, Inc., MMXIV.
