Superstars Derailed: How to Predict Success and Failure in Talented Leaders
Superstars Derailed:
How to Predict Success and Failure in Talented Leaders
Dr. Dirk Baxter, SPHR
Leadership Futures, Inc.

To err is human (Alexander Pope)
Prediction is difficult, especially of the future (Yogi Berra)


We all know leaders who by all measures appear destined for success. They have talent, drive, and seemingly limitless potential. So why do so many of these superstars never arrive at their destination? The field of human capital profiling has become increasingly sophisticated in identifying the differentiators between those who are likely to succeed and those who won’t.

The two biggest factors in preventing talented people from going off course are:
1) Knowledge and awareness of differentiators.
2) Ongoing practice of strategies that maximize potential even as the world becomes more and more complex.

Unfortunately, the global economic crisis and other recent catastrophes are evidence that too little is being done to prevent leadership derailment. It is imperative that we look for new ways to mitigate these risks and identify derailing leadership behaviors before failures occur.

Participants will gain insights into:
- Strategies for Talent Risk Mitigation
- Recommendations for assessment, coaching, and development for leaders
- The factors that differentiate superstars from everyone else
- Tips for identifying and handling difficult personalities
- Active strategies to maximize potential


This 60 minute interactive session is geared towards talent management professionals who wish to employ best practices in selecting and building top talent.

Dr. Baxter, SPHR will guide the discussion relying on his expertise as an executive assessor, behavioral coach, and talent strategist in aligning individual and team goals against business needs.
