Question - Growing People:
Is the individual willing to make tough decisions, including leading others to new opportunities outside the organization, when appropriate?
Example: Sally had to give Amy poor performance reviews two years in a row. Amy had excellent analytical skills but simply seemed disinterested in the products their company produced. Therefore, Amy seemed to lack the dedication and follow through needed in her demanding role. Sally noticed that Amy had a passion for bike riding though. Determining that Amy's future was limited at the company, Sally called a former classmate that worked for a bicycle manufacturer and secured Amy an optional interview in their organization. While confronting Amy with her performance reviews and the realization her opportunities were limited, Sally also provided her the option to interview with the bicycle company.
