Competency Matters

When it comes to hiring, a buzzword I often hear is the word competency.
Competency is defined as, “The intuitive knowledge and ability to do something successfully or efficiently.”
The question is do you need to know a lot about a little or a little about a lot?
That depends. If you are a doer, a lot about a little is in order. If you are a leader, a broader understanding is vital.
For managers, the key is to know the difference between the two and to align the team accordingly.
It is rare for a team member to possess, both, narrow focus and broad understanding. If you find one who does, it is probably a good time to hire.
Why? Because there is a reason competency is a buzzword … It matters!

Would you rather your direct reports know a lot about a little or a little about a lot?
