How to spot leadership potential in your current team

Hiring new people can bring new perspectives and ideas, but you may already have the right people in place to facilitate business growth.

Those who are taking the lead

Look for team members who get involved in projects and tend to take the lead, regardless of their seniority (or lack thereof). Some people are natural leaders, as evidenced by those who are committed to collective success, rather than their own personal achievement. To be a successful business leader, you must be willing to take the initiative and lead from the front. As a result, keep an eye out for this trait in your current team members.

Volunteers ready to take ownership

The desire to try new things, learn new things, and develop new skills is an excellent quality to look for in future leaders. Those who volunteer and want to take ownership of a project are more likely to drive growth once they reach management positions. These people have a strong desire to learn and work hard to keep their skills up to date.

Emotional intelligence is a skill

Knowledge and intellectual ferocity are essential. However, understanding others, using and managing our own emotional understanding in positive ways to communicate effectively, empathise with others, and defuse conflict, is also important. This is emotional intelligence, and it enables business leaders to build stronger relationships, lead teams, gain buy-in from others, and achieve their objectives.

Personal Investment

Emerging leaders are personally invested in the company’s long-term goals and plans. They are driven to go above and beyond in order to achieve results that benefit everyone in the organisation. This is the type of person you want on your management team.
