Core Competencies

An email arrives from HR:
“All staff must access the career portal
and register their core competencies.”

That gets me curious.

I log on and discover a long list
of attributes and characteristics.

I must identify three as “fundamental to my sense of purpose.”
I choose Humour, Dealing with Paradox and Work/Life Balance.

I can flag up others as “unimportant/irrelevant.”
I choose Customer Focus, Drive for Results and Ethical Behaviour.

I relax back in my chair.

I feel good about these selections.

I could always say
I got the categories mixed up.
