Driving High-Impact Engagement in Your High-Potentials


High-potentials (HiPos) typically are the most engaged and committed segment of a company's workforce, and their respective engagement, when leveraged strategically, can evolve into a strategic asset that improves performance across the entire organization. HiPos' needs often mirror those of the broader employee base, but the intensity around those demands is usually much stronger. When recognized and supported these HiPos become force multipliers within an organization, cascading their own engagement and commitment to the broader team. GE’s XLP program currently trains over 800 participants annually across HR, leadership, and other functional areas ensuring their high-potentials everywhere are setup for success.  Join us and discover how GE develops their future-ready leaders to drive engagement through communication and feedback.
