In this section of my electronic portfolio, we will be visiting the eight different core competencies that I believe are most pertinent to my leadership. The first and most frequently used competency is project management. Throughout my progress here at Arizona State University, project management has proven to be a skill that is necessary in all different areas of organizational leadership. We will be visiting the conflict management competency next, which explains how important it is to be able to propose mutually beneficial solutions and assist people in working through scenarios that prove to be more tense and emotional than most. The critical thinking and decision-making competencies have proven themselves to be very useful tools when working in team setting. There is always a point in a team project where a crucial decision needs to be made and these two competencies have been very beneficial to me during those times.
Each competency has it owns unique value and contribution to leadership. The remaining competencies displayed in my electronic portfolio have each had their own time in the sun where they displayed their unique benefits to my leadership. They have proven how necessary learning these skills are if I wish to be an effective leader. The remaining competencies that will be visited are diversity and inclusion, empathy, responsibility, and team dynamics and collaboration. These core competencies do more than just benefit my leadership. They are and will always be the foundation of my leadership. Without a diverse skillset, you will likely encounter a time where you are unprepared for the scenario you are presented with. These eight competencies are what I believe to be the biggest contributors to my leadership style and my overall skillset.
