    Dropped alone into a strange workplace world; left to survive through your strengths and wits…

    The Competency Games is about understanding the nature and application of business competencies in today’s dynamic work environments. 

    Internal or external you will take away specific behavioral definitions and deepened knowledge of typical business competencies. You’ll receive your own set of the best-selling What Really Matters® Competency Cards that you'll use in three illuminating games (i.e. exercise scenarios). This tool will add to your knowledge and skill and can be used directly in internal and external consulting roles to:

    • Identify critical competencies for interviewing/hiring, performance management, and for personal or employee development.
    • Identify company, managerial, or leadership competencies and associated expectations or developmental needs

    Join Sue Sorensen, a long-standing ASTD-LA member, MSed, CPLP, SPHR and Director of T&D for KB Home, a top ten home-builder.  Sue is also executive director of SSA Training, Inc., the exclusive source for What Really Matters® training materials and services.  

    This workshop aligns with the Integrated Talent Management Competency of the ASTD Competency Model. For more information about the model, please visit http://www.astd.org/Certification/Competency-Model.
