Course Overview

There are 4 key sections of this training course.

1. Competencies
In today’s ever-changing world, being able to think creatively and practically about competency development is an essential skill. It can sometimes be challenging to reflect competencies as the narrative can seem somewhat separate from everyday discussions. As a result, making sense of this intriguing area can be the first step to explore.

To this end, this section focuses on competencies. The content will:

  • Explore a working definition of competencies.
  • Discuss the components of competencies and how they are at the center of conversations on how knowledge, skills, and abilities develop.
  • Outline expert advice and insights that highlight how leadership has become a crucial factor in the development of these skills.
  • Explore the role of interdependencies, the benefits of competencies, and the business-critical area of succession planning.

2. Competency mapping
We all interact with competencies on a daily basis. Yet, on a personal level, we might not know exactly what competencies are prevalent in each situation.  In fact, no business will reach its potential without some matching of competencies to the goals of that organization.

This section is all about competency mapping and will:

  • Discuss competency mapping.
  • Explore key performance factors.

3. The stages of learning
The training focuses on how to change perceptions about competency development. And, the content pays special attention to the key factors involved in learning new competencies and explores key learning models (e.g., VAK).

4. Different types of learning
Insufficiently developed competencies lead to challenges to achieving organizational goals. This final section details the barriers to competency development skills.
