INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTOR PERFORMANCE COMPETENCIES
Member and Customer Focus:Personally demonstrates that external (or internal) customers are a high priority. Identifies customer needs and expectations and responds to them in a timely and effective manner. Anticipates and prevents delays or other things that can adversely affect the customer. Keeps customers informed about the status of pending actions and inquires about customer satisfaction with products or services. This is in sharp contrast to behavior patterns that tend to disappoint customers, leave them feeling forgotten and unimportant or that otherwise result in unmet needs or expectations.
Teamwork:Is an effective team player who adds complementary skills and contributes valuable ideas, opinions and feedback. Communicates in an open and candid manner and can be counted upon to fulfill any commitments made to others on the team. This is distinctly different from those who withhold ideas and opinions, offer ideas or opinions that rarely add value to team discussions, have established a track record with many unmet commitments, and/or have not contributed skills that complement the skills of others on the team.
Communication:Communicates effectively and appropriately. Uses good judgment as to what to communicate to whom as well as the best way to get that accomplished. Speaks in a clear and credible manner, selecting the right tone for the situation and audience. Listens to others and allows them to make their point. This is quite different than those who tend to select the wrong means of communicating, or who communicate information to inappropriate people. It also contrasts with those who messages are not clear or lack credibility, as well as those who demonstrate poor listening skills and are unreceptive to feedback.
Solving Problems:Takes a proactive approach to anticipating and preventing problems. When problems occur, define those problems, investigates obstacles, gathers relevant information, decides whether solving the problem should be a group decision, generates and analyzes alternate solutions and arrives at a workable solution. This differs from those who are not proactive, typically get surprised when problems occur, attempt to solve problems without the right mix of people involved, push too quickly for solutions or generate solutions that are not viable.
Quality of Work:Has established a track record of producing work that is highly accurate, demonstrates attention to detail and reflects well on the organization. Is personally committed to high quality work and encourages others to have similar standards. This differs from those who cannot be relied upon to produce high quality work, pay little attention to detail, show little pride in a job well done and/or set a poor example for co-workers or direct reports.
Technical Job Skills:Possesses sufficient job skills and knowledge to perform the job in a competent manner. Is able to demonstrate skills and knowledge in day-to-day situations. This is distinctly different from those individuals who lack sufficient job skills or knowledge to meet job requirements or who have the skills and knowledge, yet struggle to apply them to day-to-day situations on the job.
Quantity of Work:Produces an amount of work that meets or exceeds job expectations. Makes sure that quality does not suffer as the quantity of work increases. Works effectively with peers and carries own share of team workload. This contrast with those whose output level is clearly below organizational needs, those who make unacceptable tradeoffs between quantity and quality and/or those whose output is typically below that of others when they are placed on a team.
