KSAP High Potential Identification Certification (Day 2 of 2)

December 3 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm EST

Go to Dec 2 to register for this 2-day certification.

Build your organizational talent pipeline and identify potential with KSAP – The Knowledge Skills and Attributes of High Potential. Studies show that High Potential can be found at ALL Levels in your organization, with special characteristics that naturally ready them for roles with broad scope and greater responsibility. Verified High Potentials do well in first-time situations and fare better during uncertainty. They handle anything you throw at them, as well as pressure and crisis better than most– and even seem to “know what to do when they don’t know what to do!” The KSAP Virtual Certification will give you the tools to identify, verify, develop, and engage your High Potential talent to ensure you have a leadership pipeline you can rely on.

Special Registrant Guideline

The KSAP Tools (The Knowledge, Skills and Attributes of Potentials) as well as the KSAP Certification is open to professionals embedded in organizations who are either full-time employees or long contracted professionals working in the organization’s talent management operations. As a general rule, KSAP is not available to individual independent consultants or members of a consulting firm or network.
There are two exceptions to the above:
  1. The consultant has been bridged (converted their previous certification to those within The KSA Suite) by TalentTelligent, and is working with our foundational tools prior to requesting access to KSAP.
  2. The consultant works with a specific sponsoring organization and has been requested to explore and learn to apply KSAP. The sponsorship will be verified by TalentTelligent. It is recommended that the consultant attend the certification with a member of the sponsoring organization. The certified consultant may only use KSAP within the sponsoring organization unless additional use is permitted in writing by TalentTelligent.
