Competencies

...Competencies and Communication The next few paragraphs will be explaining why understanding ones personal competencies help them become better leaders, and communicators. If a person can understand their strengths they can use it to their advantage when revising their managerial roles. To understand competencies one must know what it means. Competencies are the skills, education, and knowledge a person uses at work or in any environment. A person who works with their children doing homework online or organizing their rooms has strengths they do not even realize. Just by doing these everyday activities in the family they are gaining communication, organization, and leading skills (Robbins & Coulter, 2012). When a person knows what their competencies are, they can use this to help improve their management skills. By using their strengths to figure out better communication characteristics, they can improve themselves. When a person understands what their competencies are, they can arrange their position around doing the things they enjoy doing. For example if a person has no skill in organization knowing this before taking an office manager position is a good thing. This kind of problematic job placement can be very aggravating for everyone involved. Once a person has grasped where they should be using their strengths, they can then understand what areas they need to start improving on. A manager needs to understand their own situation before they can begin to understand......

Competency 317.1.6-03-06, 08-10: Organizational Behavior & Leadership

...Competency 317.1.6-03-06, 08-10: Organizational Behavior & Leadership Introduction: In this task you are presented with a management incident that requires you to apply sound performance appraisal concepts to the situation. Given: An engineer was hired two years ago at a mid-sized manufacturing plant. The engineer previously worked in the aerospace industry and is a bright, detail-oriented person and a hard worker. The engineer has suggested changes at the plant that resulted in considerable savings on manufacturing energy costs and eliminated a significant safety hazard that had been overlooked by the previous engineer. However, some co-workers resent the engineer because of clashing personalities, and they often play practical jokes on the engineer. It is time for the engineer’s second annual performance review. The plant manager is considering skipping this review because the first annual review ended with the engineer angrily exclaiming that, as the only trained engineer in the company, there was no one—including the manager—who was qualified to evaluate the engineer’s work. The engineer had little confidence in the company’s overall approach to performance evaluation and was particularly upset that most of the rating scales focused on personal characteristics and relationships with co-workers. After learning about the 360-degree evaluation method, the plant manager wonders if a 360-degree approach might be a good way to handle the engineer’s review. Using the......

Changing Roles of Emergency Managers

...CHANGING EMERGENCY MANAGER’S ROLES Emergency response to community needs has existed since humans started to gather in groups. Communities early in history had no specific roles. All members of the community were expected to assist when emergencies arose. According to written history, the entire community was expected to respond to fires, to open their homes to allow for triage, and every able-bodied member of the community was expected perform a role. Mayors, sheriffs, and other types of community leaders were by virtue of their office thrust into leadership roles when an emergency affected the community resources regardless of their experience. Today, Emergency Managers are often elected. They usually have a strong education and experience level. Emergency Managers are often trained with government resources, have a military background and are directly linked to Federal resources which continuously assist them in preparing for the next emergency. The most critical different is the speed by which the hazards change today. Early community leaders were rarely dealing with more than one issue at any given time, but today’s managers may be responsible for an enormous population and the additional hazards which lie within. Any natural disaster can initiate a chain of problems from HAZMAT spills to infectious disease outbreaks and today’s Emergency Managers have to be prepared for everything to happen at once. Early American history showed keen understanding of the......

Most Important Competencies for Future Managers

...Most important competencies for future managers (2020-2023) - Business School Netherlands Written by Business School Nederland Thursday, 16 January 2014 14:38 Business School Netherlands’ (BSN) Advisory Board MBA is an operational committee advising BSN on the current and future role of managers, its function being to maintain an up-to- date connection between the MBA programmes offered by BSN, and worldwide developments, particularly within organisations and non-profit organisations. Changing its approach of the previous years, the Advisory Board has adopted a significantly longer term focus, based on questions like What changes can we expect in the coming 7 – 10 years?, Which managerial competenties will become increasingly important? The reason behind this broader outlook is the large number of sources indicating that managers and organisations will face radical changes over the next decade.  The report ‘Agent of change, the future of technology disruption in business’ counts as one of these influential sources; an investigation led by the Economist Intelligence Unit (2012). Based on interviews with nearly 600 international executives (profit and non-profit) the report portrays the following outlook for the future: - By 2020 corporate industries will look drastically different. It is expected that many industries and companies will merge; in particular media, entertainment, financial services and telecommunications; - Information and ‘big data’......
