A shocking 58% of respondents would trust a stranger more than their leaders, says a Harvard Business Review survey. These surveys reveal that the management needs to find the right leadership. In this Business 2 Community article, Darleen DeRosa discusses the 4 ways you can identify natural leaders in your company.
Qualities of Potential Leaders
89% of leaders think their employees resign for money. In reality, 79% leave because the bosses fail to acknowledge their capabilities. Gallup research confirms that companies fail to identify the right candidates for leadership roles 82% of the time. People are considered based on the number of hours they are clocking or their experience levels. Many take up the role merely to get a good hike or a promotion. So how do you find out who is the best for your company? Below are the 4 ways you can identify natural leaders in your company:
- Capacity: The capacity to deliver with limited support, resources, or time helps the potential leaders to take up additional tasks. If you find that your candidate is consistent with the work output, that can be the guy for you.
- Aptitude: High performers may not aspire to be managers but will grab any chance to improve and grow their skills. They take their feedback positively to understand the areas of improvement. Since they keep a tab on company developments, they also understand how the changes in one department affect the others.
- Commitment: Potential leaders are very committed to their work and their dedication inspires others. They are knowledgeable about the company and industry news. Inspiration will make you want to explore and add more skills, and you cannot teach this in training sessions.
- Leading the Way: The difference between high-performers and leaders is that the latter focus on improving their team performance rather than their own. Most of these potential candidates show signs of a natural leader. They want to come forward, take risks, and inspire others. Along with strong communication skills and work ethics, they also are aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. They create an environment ripe for innovation and skills improvement.
