Shared Competencies

Shared competencies are skills that every member of our team, regardless of role, should work to develop and refine because they are critical to success as a team of “managers of one.”

1. Awareness

Practice self-awareness and context-awareness.

“Highly self-aware individuals are able to turn their focus and critiques to themselves, observing their current emotional and mental state. People who are truly self-aware separate their decision-making from their emotions; they control and manage their thoughts, rather than having their thoughts and emotions control them.” Source
