3 Keys to Identifying Leadership Talent

1.) Early Indicators
 – Look way back at prior jobs as well as what they did during their schooling that would indicate the sense of personal responsibility that is typically the cornerstone of leadership.

2.) Consistency Over Time – The real leaders exhibit leadership traits very early in life and exhibit those traits over and over again in various contexts.  Look for that consistency as you probe for examples of them playing a leadership role.

3.) Pride in the Team’s Accomplishment – Beware of the person who attempts to take the majority of the credit in regard to accomplishments they are describing to you.  You are looking for the person who really cares about the team winning.
