3 Tests of a Leadership Competency

Listen to this post 

If you know me at all, you know I’m an evangelist for a values approach to growth and development.

This values approach is focused on leadership growth and development through a conscious use of core strengths and continual skill development. This focus on continual development is to balance and enhance the application of skills through practice while growing in effectiveness of competency demonstration.

A competency is a specific skill where you as the leader have developed a significant proficiency. You perform it well consistently and almost flawlessly.

In order for a particular skill to be a competency, it must pass the 3 tests: 

  1. It has application to a wide variety of environments
  2. It must make a significant contribution to the desired end state/product/service
  3. It should be performed authentically – thus creating further distinction between your organization’s environment and that of others

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
