“I’ll email you when I have something for you to do” – manager says to a new intern. 🤔
How does it sound? Positive or negative? What competency (or lack of) do we see here: teamwork, interpersonal communication or maybe ability to motivate others?
🎬 We’ve used scenes from movies and series to provide our surge community with guidance and practice on assessing competencies of others. We think it's fun :)
Our short new module takes you through 6 steps:
1. Preparation for assessment
2. Observing competencies
3. Evaluating competencies
4. Debriefing with other assessors
5. Debriefing those you assessed
6. Providing a summary, recommendations, and feedback
The module takes about 40-60 minutes, and is available on the IFRC Learning Platform. We used our Core Competency Framework for Surge Personnel, but the same principles can be applied with any other framework.
