A Scalable Model
Researchers recommend that competencies are grouped hierarchically, such that there will be a core set of competencies, Self, and other sets of competencies which can be built upon with experience as you move to more senior roles. To differentiate competencies associated with managerial roles of different seniority, two additional sets of competencies, People vs Organizational, are included in the model.
Advantages of the High Performance Competency Model
Three Dimensions of Competency
Having a consistent framework is crucial, especially when developing competencies so that they are observable and measurable. That’s where the Mentis High Performance Competency Model (HPCM) comes in.
The HPCM is based on rigorous scientific research and expert opinion, and it captures the attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge necessary for high performance. What’s unique about this model is its ability to cater to people from all backgrounds and the care taken in ensuring it’s future-proof and culturally sensitive. It achieves this by using accessible, everyday language that anyone can understand.
As a result, the HPCM helps individuals and organizations alike understand the essential competencies needed for success and taking action on these more easily. This ensures that everyone is on the same page, making it easier to work together towards achieving goals.
Navigating to Success: Mapping the Key Competencies for Job Performance
In the modern workplace, determining which attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge are essential for success can be challenging. It’s easy to identify underperforming employees, but it’s often difficult to understand the root cause of their struggles. On the other hand, it can be even more challenging to differentiate between good and excellent performers, as the differences are often subtle but critical.
- It’s essential to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each individual’s competencies to ensure they are matched to the role they’re in. When there’s a mismatch, it leads to disengagement and negatively impacts the individual’s development journey, regardless of their intent.
- This can contribute to a difficult environment for both the individual and the organization, leading to dissatisfaction and turnover. That’s why it’s crucial for businesses to invest in tools and frameworks that help identify the essential competencies for success and ensure that individuals are matched to the right roles. By doing so, companies can create a positive work environment that drives engagement, job satisfaction, and ultimately, long-term success.
