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.

Mentoring Methods and Skills

Mentors can be powerful transformational figures in a person’s life and throughout a career. They can positively impact a person’s career trajectory, competency development, confidence level, and character development. It is possible to be a mentor for a lifetime, a mentor for a short time, or a mentor for a moment, merely during a transaction. This course provides participants with fundamental insights, skills, knowledge, and methods for becoming an effective mentor and a receptive mentee.
