Find your best fit leaders to make the biggest impact
Your leaders set the tone for your entire organization. Great leaders motivate, inspire, and engage people. They contribute to a positive workplace climate, promote inclusivity, and can see the bigger picture to drive organizational goals forward.
If you don’t have potential leaders already within your organization, it may be necessary to seek new leaders externally. So how do you evaluate new leadership candidates to find out who can make the biggest impact on your organization? Now’s the time to take a deep look into your talent management process to see if it aligns with the needs of your organization. Understanding what you need from your leadership can help you assess potential leaders accurately and objectively to find the best fit.
Our top 5 tips for selecting great leaders
Establish your goals
What are you looking for in a leader? First you need to determine the attributes and competencies your leaders need in order to thrive. You then need to connect your organizational goals to the measurements you’re using to evaluate each leadership candidate.
Evaluate your organizational needs
Leaders are often called upon to see the bigger picture of what your organization needs to thrive. They need to be able to confidently assess and act on those needs to carry the organization forward. What kind of leader does your organization need? Decide whether you are looking for someone to disrupt and lead through change or just keep things moving.
Don’t forget about leadership development
You don’t always need to look externally for your next great leader. Revisit your succession plan to determine if you’re accurately evaluating those already in your organization who have leadership potential. A great development program may be just what they need to grow into their potential.
Consider candidate experience
When people reach a senior level, they usually feel less need to prove themselves. Make sure the assessments you use in your selection process are candidate-friendly and not cumbersome. Allow applicants to show their expertise while feeling that the assessment is appropriate for their level.
Look toward the future
When selecting leaders, focus on your organizational needs for both today and tomorrow. Where do you want to be in the next five years? What kind of leader is needed for the future?
