The construct is borrowed from @ToddAdkins with some extra doodling by yours truly…
1. The NOW box represents your A-List leadership who are ready to move…now!
2. The 3 shaded boxes represent up & coming B-List leaders who need a bit more grooming/mentoring/confidence to take that next step. They’re on the move!
3. The dotted boxes represent C-List potentials in the wings (some may make it, others might not) who deserve some, but obviously not ALL, of your time.
As a Talent Scout & Mentor, you’ll make that determination on a person-by-person basis.
