Latent

Latent

<lay-tent>

dormant; lurking; smoldering;

something hidden before making its appearance.

The detective would find the latent fingerprints. The mouse stole the cheese.

Memory trick:
latent reminds of late.
something late is hidden until we see it.

At work:
She had a latent talent for leadership. She surprised herself by managing the team well.
