A recruiting firm based in England asked a pal to list her “Core Competencies” for a prospective top-level job, using these categories:

  • Burning Drive for Results
  • Strategic Dexterity
  • Winning the license to operate
  • Delivering through people
  • Leading Others

Think about your own skills and abilities in terms of these competencies. In my experience, they are prized by employers on this side of the pond, also.
