Potential often describes the possibility of something occurring if the right conditions or circumstances are in place.
Potential also relates to the capacity of someone to become or develop into something in the future.
Three basic areas exist when considering ways to determine potential.
Actions: What has been done over the past five or ten years that lays a foundation for the future?
Abilities: With training and practice, abilities can change. What exists that can be built upon?
Attitude: When a positive attitude and determination exists, potential is unlimited.
Potentially speaking, leaders can examine these three areas and set powerful goals for the future.
