A competency model is a set of knowledge, skills, behaviors, or attributes, which defines what is needed by a person to be effective in a particular leadership position. The two articles this week titled; A leadership competency model: Guiding the NAON process and Leadership Competencies from the SHRM website, introduce the concept of competency models and provides an example of a leadership competency model. Study the practice of competency modeling and existing leadership competency models. Search for a minimum of three scholarly sources on competency models and develop a competency model for a particular leadership position, such as college president, mayor, college athletic coach, or chief executive officer.
