Why do we need competencies – When we understand ourselves better, we start a journey to become a better version of who we are.

Yes, it is ok to pause and take a look at where we are, what we do, and to be honest with ourselves about our knowledge, skills, and abilities.

When it comes to driving these concepts home, one of the most potent ways to get this message across is to explore a working definition of competencies. To share this definition, use the content provided, and don’t be afraid to give your experience of competency development and how this shapes your thoughts on companies and growth.

When you present this course material, your audience will learn about the components of competencies and how they are at the center of conversations on how knowledge, skills, and abilities develop. You’ll be able to share expert advice and insights that highlight how leadership has become a crucial factor in the development of these skills. With these straightforward aspects in mind, you can use the content to explore the role of interdependencies, the benefits of competencies, and the business-critical area of succession planning.

Competency mapping – When people talk about competencies, they often refer to the whole area of competency mapping and job analysis skills. Use the content provided to discuss this critical area, and it is crucial that your audience also understands performance factors.

You should encourage your audience by also sharing some of your personal experiences with competencies. This form of storytelling will significantly improve engagement levels and foster more significant learning.

When you explore this material with your audience, the barriers that can exist to competency development skills start to disappear.
