Transcript – January 12, 2017 – Competence and Competencies

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

This Week’s Questions

  • What are “”competencies””? Is there a/what is the difference between ‘having a competency’ and ‘being competent’?
  • What is “”talent””? Does it/how does it differ from a competency?
  • How do you assess your own skills/talents?How do you know you’re competent? Do you/how do you seek feedback?
  • Are there areas in which you’d like to grow that you’ve found especially difficult? What can you do to improve?
  • How do you know when a competency or competencies become obsolete?
  • Thinking of your own learning/growth, how do you anticipate the future? How will you choose what to develop?
Please excuse the format of this week’s transcript as our typical capturing method experienced an error.

margiemeacham    #lrnchat Example – Putting is a competency required in golf. I’m a fairly competent golfer
dawnjmahoney      Replying to @busynessgirl
vidyakumar    A1) Competency describes the thing
odguru    1) Competencies are HOW you do something.  I.e. not “”problem solving”” but “”using tools/hypothesies/experiements to solve problems””. #lrnchat
dawnjmahoney    MT @margiemeachamEx:Putting is a competency required in golf. I’m a fairly competent golfer
kelly_smith01    Q1) Competencies are skills required to perform a job or task #lrnchat

kelly_smith01    Q1) Competent is successfully performing a job using a set of competencies #lrnchat
spotlessmind82    A1) A competency does NOT = being competent #lrnchat
rabbitoreg    A1) While I often mention competencies as a manager
busynessgirl    I think you can definitely master skills. The question is whether a competency is something broader? So many definitions …#lrnchat
lrnchat    Q2) What is “”talent””? Does it/how does it differ from a competency? #lrnchat

eLearninCyclops      Replying to @lrnchat
dawnjmahoney    A1) Talent begins with innate ability
urbie    #lrnchat A2a Talent is innate. Competency is learned.
JaneBozarth      Replying to @ClintClarkson
busynessgirl    I guess another way to look at talent would be the accumulation of expertise on top of competency? Asking. Not telling. #lrnchat
vidyakumar    A2) Talent is inborn
kelly_smith01    Q2) Talent is a qualitative judgment. Competency is an assessment – that’s my qualitative assessment #lrnchat
dawnjmahoney    A1) Talent also means the “”sweat equity””/investment an individual makes to be become proficient (to me higher level than competent #lrnchat
JaneBozarth       Replying to @rabbitoreg @kellymcgonigal
odguru    2) Talent is natural ability. Developing talent building on instincts to act that express the art and the science of a skill. #lrnchat
TheQuietSpeaker    A2) I see talent as a notch above competency. You can be average and competent. You can’t be average and talented. #lrnchat
rabbitoreg    A2) Side note. I hate the “”talent development”” title. #lrnchat

theASIDEblog    Many can be competent in doing a job
dawnjmahoney    A3) Why I think Competency mapping is important/Used to measure performance/Needed to be less subjective/Way this usually goes #lrnchat
JaneBozarth    A2 I know lots of people who have talent but wouldn’t say they’re competent at that thing. It’s often undeveloped. #lrnchat

busynessgirl    The way “”talent”” is being discussed as innate makes me wonder how you all feel about fixed vs growth mindset? #lrnchat
