Leaders emerge in an organization just like carbonation in a can of pop – they ‘bubble up’ to the top. Here are some signs that someone is bubbling up:
- They ask you for more to do
- They are stars in their current role
- They show an interest in their own professional development
- They naturally live out your organization’s core values
You can expect that, for every 100 employees you have, 10-20 will be bubbling up at any given time. Encourage them, reward them, and give them more to do – they are your future.
