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. The two articles this week titled; A leadership competency model: Guiding the NAON process and Leadership Competencies from the SHRM website, introduce the concept of competency models and provides an example of a leadership competency model. Study the practice of competency modeling and existing leadership competency models. Using the Ashford University Library, search for a minimum of three scholarly sources on competency models and develop a competency model for a particular leadership position, such as college president, mayor, college athletic coach, or chief executive officer. In your paper
• Provide an overview of your competency model.
• 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.
• Illustrate how you would go about evaluating leaders in a specific leadership position using your model.
• Discuss how your model of leadership assists in the development of leaders. Your paper should be two to three pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages). Your paper must be formatted according to APA style, and it must include citations and references from the text and at least three scholarly sources.
