Competency development

Current job - having completed your personal profile, you may wish to discuss with your manager areas that you have identified as providing an opportunity for development. What are the priorities for your job? What are your development objectives and how can they be met? Use the box below to record your plans.

Barks need to convey more specific information - not just "Pay attention to me."
Need to gain additional experience with different dog treats - suggest managers buy huge selection from pet store.
Need to gain experience eating steak - managers have been too selfish to share.

Future development - If it is appropriate you may wish to use this space to record the development goals related to your future career aspirations. Consider what competencies/dimensions and skills and knowledge you will need to fulfill your longer term needs. Having defined your objectives you will need to plan how to achieve them, including any priorities or target dates. You can then use this to help you agree appropriate career development objectives with your manager.

Opening doors - grow thumbs by January 2004
Drivers licence - obtain learners permit by June 2002
Walk on hind legs by November 2003

Competencies not currently in use - use this space to record any competencies and/or professional skills and knowledge which you have, but which are either not used or are under used in your current job.

Competency Dimension Skill/knowledge Level What job and when used
Rodent chasing Run and catch Identification of rodent menace, racing towards it. High Early in current job, until squirrels stayed out of yard

Remember - your end of year evaluation will depend entirely on how much your manager(s) like you - not on any of this nonsense.
