Leadership Competency Model

A competency model is a set of knowledge, skills, behaviors, or attributes, which defines what is needed by a person to be effective in a particular leadership position.  Chapter 7 of the course text introduces the concept of competency models and provides an example of a leadership competency model (see page 12 of the attached chapter).  Study the practice of competency modeling and existing leadership competency models.  Develop a competency model for a particular leadership position, such as college president, mayor, college athletic coach, or chief executive officer (pick one). 

In your paper:

a.       Provide an overview of your competency model.  
b.      List three- to- five specific skills, abilities, behaviors, attitudes, and/or knowledge areas you believe are important for success in the position.  Clearly define and provide examples of each.  
c.       Identify how you would go about evaluating leaders in a specific leadership position using your model.  
d.      Discuss how your model of leadership assists in the development of leaders.
Your paper should be two pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages).  Must include an introduction and conclusion paragraph.  Your paper must be formatted according to APA style and it must include citations from the references mentioned on the next page (all are attached).  You may use additional references but those mentioned below must be utilized.  Thank you.
