What's a Leadership Competency?

Updated: Jan 9

When people ask what I do for a living, I often say I build leaders.


I help high achievers build their ability to lead by focusing on the skills and behaviors that contribute to superior performance. Yup! I help you build competency in leadership.





There are many leadership competencies that are important, and here are seven I love:

  1. Vision and strategic thinking: The ability to define a clear and compelling vision for the organization, and to develop and execute a strategic plan to achieve it.

  2. Decision-making: The ability to make sound, well-informed decisions in a timely manner, considering the potential risks and benefits.

  3. Communication: The ability to effectively communicate the vision and strategic plan to stakeholders, and to effectively influence and persuade others to support it.

  4. Adaptability: The ability to adapt to changing circumstances and environments, and to pivot when necessary.

  5. Innovation: The ability to think creatively and generate new ideas to solve problems and create value.

  6. Collaboration: The ability to build strong relationships and work effectively with others to achieve common goals.

  7. Time management: The ability to prioritize tasks and manage one's time effectively to achieve goals.

These are just a handful of the competencies that matter most to effective leadership. What would YOU add to the list?
