High Potentials: A CEO Perspective
Hermans, Jeanine
Journal of Studies in International Education, v11 n3-4 p510-521 2007
Finding high potentials has been identified as one of the major challenges for society and for higher education. But how does one find the talented individuals who will design the future of society? Can and should universities cooperate or compete with business and industry for these talents? Three CEOs reflect on this worldwide competition for talent, providing a stakeholder perspective that may help rethinking the role of universities within the framework of the knowledge economy. Successful responses to the need of maximizing intellectual potential should not so much focus on competition for high potentials but on the nurturing and growing of talent. As a result of the changing needs of society, CEOs foresee major changes in the concept of the classical university. Whether high potentials actually develop the lifestyle fitting to the new concept of lifelong learning remains to be seen.
