While most training businesses and government professionals relegate Executive Core Qualifications to SES (Senior Executive Service), PowerSkills believes that ECQs apply to the development of every government professional. Therefore, we reference them and link content to them in every course, so that every government professional realizes that their development is in support of their agency efforts to Lead People, Be Results Driven, Develop Business Acumen, Lead Change, and Build Coalitions.

Competencies offer professionals a common core of knowledge, skills, and abilities; a baseline from which a professional can assess strengths and growth gaps, create developmental and application plans, acknowledge accountabilities, be monitored and evaluated, and receive recognition and rewards. PowerSkills builds each course upon the foundation of Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Competencies. We use the OPM Framework Fact Sheet and MOSAIC Framework to design each course so that consistency is offered, standards are established, the bar is raised, and course work can be focused on the development and demonstration of aptitudes.

Classification Connection

Because each GS position classification has unique developmental needs our course descriptions provide a notation about which classification the course supports. Look for the “classification connection” in each course description.

Leadership Vision, Values, Virtues, and Vestiges

Character – values and virtues – matter! Ask anyone who had worked in an organization in which the values and virtues of quality leadership character have been slowly diminished over time or eviscerated suddenly. Morale plummets, productivity decreases, departures rise, and tension increases. When character is absent, relegated to a secondary status of unimportance, or diminished in any way a leader, a team, and an entire organization loses reputation, credibility, confidence, and the capability to fulfill its mission and achieve its goals. Vision inspires, and so a leader must have and engender vision, values, and virtues at work. However, the leader cannot stop there. Vestiges must also be taken into consideration. Vestiges are remnants of the past; things that were once traditional or useful, but that are now antiquated, unhelpful, or even offensive. Leaders must evaluate the vestiges within organizations and get rid of them. This course helps leaders generate visions, integrate values, build virtues, and erase vestiges.
