Competencies common to all employees/Level-Specific/Role-Specific


Some competencies are so basic that all employees need to imbibe and exhibit them, for e.g.. Integrity. Apart from these, there could be role-specific or level-specific competencies which an employee may need to demonstrate once he/she is in those circles.

Leadership competencies are not something which require to be paid attention to as and when an employee moves up the organizational hierarchy. They are essential attributes or traits which must be imbibed in order to be more effective in execution of job-responsibilities of one’s self and of the employees reporting to one’s self. There are a few competencies whose minimum levels must be displayed by ALL employees regardless of their current status in the organizational hierarchy. For example, trust and integrity is one such competency. One cannot say that the employees at the lower level do not need to display this competency. As we go upwards in the organizational hierarchy, there can be some competencies which are common to certain roles or to certain levels. Like the essentially required competencies at senior levels, these basic competencies do in fact the performance at all levels.
