Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how we would use the content provided to deliver the key sections of this training course. Let’s get started.

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

So how can we better understand ourselves? And, how does this all relate to competencies? Well, we first need to stop trying to stop flying around the place busy all the time. 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. Every time you dip into your own experiences, you’ll offer your audience an opportunity to build common ground and increase trust levels.

Stages of learning – Gaining understanding and useful advice to common questions about competencies is an essential first step to building a better perspective. With this in mind, you’ll get help your audience to uncover their value as they learn about the stages of learning.

Refer to the content supplied and explore how to change perceptions about competency development. And then highlight the key factors involved in learning new competencies. Use the content to examine learning models (e.g., VAK).

Types of learning – Being the most competent person in the room is, of course, a nice feeling. But competence is an unusual concept in this regard. It comprises of so many things. When you explore this material with your audience, the barriers that can exist to competency development skills start to disappear. And, even though your audience may share different backgrounds and experiences, you can improve their understanding of competencies by also considering the “laws of learning.”

Linking your experiences to areas raised by the content will stimulate more learning and encourage greater participation from your audience.
