Interview with Competency Academy participant

We put together a mini-interview of a HR professional who took our Advanced Competency-Based Management (CBM) certification course. 

Here is what he had to say about his experience::

Name: Mohammed A. 

Company: Seera

Competency Academy course completed: Advanced Competency-Based Management certification

  1. Tell us about your HR role and how did you get into HR?
    • A: My current role is as a manager of an HR Business Partner and I have ten years of experience at this position.

  2. How did you get into HR?
    • A: I previously worked in a private hospital. During that time, I visited the Human Resources department wondering what certificates or skills I would need to increase my income or get a promotion. Sadly, I did not find a sufficient answer.

      At that time, I decided to enter the HR field and change the view of others through my work in this area. My goal is to improve the image others have of HR employees (as a whole).

  3. What initially made you interested in taking an Advanced CBM course?
    • A: After my experience working at the private hospital, I entered and completed both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Human Resources.

      The professionalism of HRSG and their extensive experience in the field of competencies was what interested me in taking their Advanced CBM course.

  4. What was your previous level of knowledge with competencies?
    • A: I know that properly understanding and applying competencies is not easy. To that point, I would say that my level of knowledge with competencies is about average.

  5. What did you find most valuable about the course?
    • A: The deep and varied experience of this course was quite valuable. The team and skills that HRSG team possesses cannot be found elsewhere. I do not think they have a strong and capable competitor in the market now. Their passion for competencies is evident in their quality work.

  6. What did you think about the instructors of the course?
    • A: They have exceptional skills, adaptability and have a variety of experience. It is clear that the instructors have undertaken many projects with different organizations and companies and have encountered many cultures, as well as multiple work environments and ideas.

  7. What would you tell someone who’s interested or thinking about taking the course?
    • A: I would tell that person not to hesitate to take one of the Competency Academy courses. With the knowledge from the course, you can start bringing positive transformation into your current HR system. It can have a very big impact on the employees at your workplace (and organizations as a whole).

  8. Overall, what do you feel you “got” out of the course?
    • A: I feel that I now have a very clear vision on the subject of Competency-Based Management from several angles and greater depth. This has helped me to implement many projects and initiatives within the company that I currently work for.

  9. How are you planning to use what you learned during the course?
    • A: I have already started identifying competencies for myself and devising a development and training plan to move through levels, discover strengths and reinforce weaknesses.
      The course has given me many basic steps to start competency implementation the right way.
      I helped the performance management, training, and development team at our company in developing some concepts for evaluation. We also worked on determining the training needs and employment also to raise the efficiency of work and the organization.
