Identify your talented team members.
People in your team may have a wide range of abilities.
For instance, some may be outstanding performers: they're definitely the "stars" of your organization. Or you might have people who could be star performers, if they had the right opportunities and training.
As a manager, you need to assess talent within your team. That way, you can give your people the training and development they need to reach their full potential. However, it can be a real challenge to evaluate talent objectively, which is why a tool like "the Nine-Box Grid for Talent Management" is so useful.
In this article we'll examine the Nine-Box Grid model, and discuss how to use it to develop your people.
The Nine-Box Grid for Talent Management (also known as the Performance and Potential Matrix), gives you a useful framework for evaluating your team members' talent.
