Roles and Level based Competency Segregation  

Leadership Competency framework

Leadership Competency frame-work is built around the leadership competencies listed in the earlier chapter. This frame-work has multiple dimensions. It talks about how to link the required leadership competencies with a given role and a given level. It provides the rules on what kind of competencies get greater importance, given the stage and challenges an organization is faced with. It also calibrates a leadership competency into different levels of excellence, so that one can assess on to the extent an employee has demonstrated a given leadership competency.


Roles and Level based Competency Segregation


The detailed competency definitions are the reference point of assigning the right set of competencies to different roles and levels. Typically, few leadership competencies are common across all levels and roles. The other competencies are assigned on the type of expectations from an employee. A marketing executive role will have different competencies assigned vs. an operations leader. Apart from a role, competency expectations will also differ as per the level. An individual contributor will carry different leadership expectations vs. a business leader.
