Personal competencies provide information on people’s abilities and how to improve their skills. I think is very important for people to know what their personal competencies are because it helps people understand their strengths and weakness as well as lets them know where they need to focus their efforts to improve their competencies. Some good competencies that would benefit a company and employees who work together are Top of Formworking cooperatively with others to achieve shared goals, showing negotiation and flexibility when there are conflicting opinions, supporting each other’s performance to achieve the best possible results.
Creating a positive environment for people to work and treating everybody with respect no matter what their position is. Keeping and strengthening relationships with others so we can all work as team in order to achieve the best goals for the company. Also, I think that motivating and empowering others to do their best when they are completing a task is good for the company because you always get the best of the employee. You should always lead by an example because if the employees see you working hard and treating everybody fairly they are always going to work hard.
