The value of a competency model is that it enables you to assess yourself against the expectations your organization has for someone in your role. When you complete your assessment, you will likely find a few skill gaps – areas where your level of proficiency, defined by specific behaviors, are below the target. However, it is also likely that you will find skills where you are both at and above the target requirement. Where you are above the requirement are your personal strengths.
Seek out opportunities to leverage your strengths (as well as closing skill gaps), which can be things such as leading a project on that area, working to identify a solution to a complex related issue, developing innovations for that area, and serving as a task-based mentor to others on that topic.
