    Join us for a Seminar on

    Competencies: The Cornerstone of Radically Effective Organizations

    Led by: Dana LeBherz, Talent Development Administrator, SCS &

    Glyn Hays, Talent Development Assistant Administrator, SCS

    In this session, you’ll learn how competency models allow you and your organization to better communicate about and align your talent development needs with the organization’s mission, vision, and strategy.  Specifically, you’ll learn how to adopt, adapt, or build a competency model that suits your needs, whether that be for one position or the entire company.  You’ll experience a competency sort first hand, and discover ways that competency mapping can be ingrained in selection, human resource development and succession planning.  Join with us and take a deep dive into how competency awareness builds better working relationships, moves leadership from transactional to transformational, and operationalizes organizational strategy. 

    Dana LeBherz is a passionate and life-long learner and leader who specializes in helping state agencies become learning organizations.  She and her team at Louisiana State Civil Service offer a portfolio of services that develop talent and start crucial conversations with organizations that lead them to self-discovery, growth, and radical effectiveness.  Originally from Maryland, and with a long stint of overseas experience, Dana has made Louisiana home for the past twelve years.  She hopes to have hobbies once she completes her EdD at Vanderbilt later this year!
