Detecting derailers

This white paper from Talent Africa- Korn Ferry Institute on "Detecting derailers" is all about recognize the warning signs before hogh potential leaders or new hires go off track.   Organizations place big bets on their rising stars. They dispatch them to foreign countries to develop new markets, charge them with innovating new products or services, and entrust them with leading large-scale changes. But what happens when these promising leaders are pushed too far too fast? The team builder fizzles in the foreign culture. The innovator takes too much risk.

The change leader struggles to keep pace with competitors. This is derailment: an unexpected—and involuntary—stall during a leader’s career ascent. The challenge for organizations and individuals is to detect derailment risks and defuse them before the leader is sidelined, demoted, or terminated.

With early detection, derailment risks can be addressed so that careers— and businesses— stay on track.
