Developing Your Top Talent for High Impact

01 February 2024 by Shweta Jhajharia

You must never be too busy to take time to sharpen the saw. Show up for yourself. Remember, when you become better, you do better and have better.”  – Shweta Jhajharia: Director, Growth Idea Ltd 

In the first chapter of ‘The Power of Unwavering Focus’ by Dandapani, something similar is echoed. Of a square piece of tissue being lifted, “You are in the middle, and as you uplift yourself, look at what you are doing to everybody else. You are uplifting everyone else as well.”  

In business, leaders play a vital role in influencing a company’s culture. An effective leader dedicates time to ‘sharpening the saw’ – this commitment to continuous growth can make a significant impact in driving business success. This is because when those in leadership positions develop themselves, they also develop those they lead. 

Remember the butterfly effect?  

The broader organisation benefits from leadership development. A growth mindset in a leader begets a growth mindset in his or her team. By enrolling in a management programme, leaders hone the behaviours and skills needed to identify opportunities, provide direction, create alignment, execute strategies effectively, encourage innovation, and develop their teams.  

The  High Potential Management Programme created by Growth Idea is designed to improve the development and retention of businesses’ high-impact, top-performing talent, thus leading to improved business performance. 

From self-awareness and strategic thinking to creativity and negotiation skills, the Hi-Po Programme covers an array of topics tailored to empowering senior middle managers and executives to create purpose, lead change, develop themselves and others, and deliver continuous excellence. 

High-potential leaders are driven to succeed. Their continuous development results in an entire workforce that is adaptable and resilient in the face of change – a desirable attribute in today’s fast-paced business world.  

When businesses invest in nurturing their top talent through programmes like Hi-Po, they are sowing the seeds for a generation of leaders who possess the skills and mindset necessary for navigating the intricacies of business. 

As high-potential leaders experience growth and success, they become role models, inspiring a culture of continuous improvement. This has the potential to elevate the company’s overall performance standards, creating a dynamic and high-achieving workplace where excellence is not just encouraged but expected. 

Furthermore, when these individuals advance in their careers, they often become influential figures in their respective industries. In this way, investing in top talent can be seen as a strategic move that may have far-reaching implications. 

Leadership development is a strategic imperative for any business aiming for long-term success. The impact of investing in the growth and empowerment of leaders is transformative, uplifting individuals, teams, and the entire business ecosystem.
