Discussions about the soft skills of a leader have been going on for many years. Is it possible to select the right leader among people already working in the company based on soft predispositions and skills assessment?
The role of the leader is undoubtedly important and responsible. The leader makes decisions related to the planning of the team’s work, delegates tasks and verifies the effects of work. In addition, the leader must have highly developed soft skills in the field of managerial skills. Such competences include, among others communication, team building and management skills, leadership skills as well as planning and problem-solving skills.
Internal recruitment for managerial positions?
It may be a good idea to select a leader from the team. In this way, we can offer the employee new challenges with a greater range of responsibilities. Internal recruitment is also a good opportunity to show that the company wants to develop its employees also for managerial positions. This affects the commitment and motivation of employees as they perceive opportunities for promotion and development.
How to select a team leader based on the Competency Matrix?
The Competence Matrix allows you to collect information about employee competencies, and in combination with profiles and competency models, it will allow you to verify which employee already has a specific set of skills and indicate areas for development. Thanks to this solution, it is possible to select a leader from the team or set a time-defined development path. The SkillBox Competence Matrix system combines the assessment of soft competences and the ability to define models and competency profiles. Thanks to this approach, during periodic appraisal programs, it is possible to make decisions about potential employee promotions! In addition, the Matrix view, which displays employee competency assessments, will allow you to quickly and easily analyze human capital or define gaps and competency excesses.
