Leading business organizations are pursuing strategically driven talent-management processes to be competitive. They put a premium on identifying and developing individuals who have potential to make significant leadership contributions to the organization in the future. We review and summarize key indicators of leadership potential found in genetic, childhood/adolescent, early adult, and midcareer research. We also present a unifying approach to leadership potential and outline an integrated model, the Blueprint of Leadership Potential.
