work group has developed a competencies list
that you can use to build a leadership/management competency model. We drew
on a wide variety of existing models. You can choose among the competencies
and edit the behavioral descriptions to meet your needs. We have chosen
to use behavioral descriptions to define the competencies. Behavioral statements
provide a more specific standard for determining whether the competency
is present. There are drawbacks to this approach, however. For example,
it is not possible to be comprehensive in terms of the behaviors that might
demonstrate the competency. (3)
We have also provided
sample competency group headings in Section
4 that you might find useful. In some cases, you may find that an
individual competency on our listing would be more appropriate as a competency
group heading. Also see links to other sites for competency models from
other states, the federal government, Canada, and Australia.
