Building an Effective Leadership Pipeline with Torch

One of the best ways to do that is by attracting, developing, and retaining high-potential (HiPo) employees, those who show motivation, ability, and organizational commitment.

Effectively meeting that goal requires providing learning and development opportunities, specifically mentoring and leadership coaching.

You want to provide HiPos with development opportunities, but your follow-through is lacking. Development programs you do initiate quickly fall by the wayside. This leads to a poor learning experience and disengagement.


Provide guided on-the-job learning that creates more continuity for HiPos. The business will benefit from increased engagement and retention while HiPos gain bite-sized accessible content and peer and mentor support.



Hands-on Support


You present a development program and expect HiPos to be successful in their roles. But more than half of your HiPos end up dropping out of the program because they have no support to rely on.


Offer your HiPos a network of people to turn to when needs, questions, or concerns arise. This will give HiPos the confidence they need to overcome obstacles, work toward their goals, and ask for help.



Personalized Experience


You offer development opportunities but take a one-size-fits-all approach. This leaves HiPos frustrated at trying to fit their unique business context, learning needs, and/or individual preferences into a mold.


Create a personalized learning journey for your HiPos by offering an integrated learning platform that includes guided and experiential learning, curated content, goal setting, and ongoing feedback.


How Mentoring
and Coaching Help

Both mentoring and coaching involve a relationship focused on development. In mentoring, a mentor with expertise in a certain area passes on his or her skills and experience to a mentee. In coaching, a specially trained coach guides an employee to set and reach goals.

Mentoring and coaching programs benefit not only HiPos, but also organizations.
