But there is some debate about whether competency models are helpful in today’s world.In my experience, the success of a competency model depends greatly on how it is used. An effective competency model is realistic in expectations, specific to the organization, and empowering for current and future leaders.Here are four tips for developing a competency model that delivers:1. Align It to Your Credit UnionDon’t simply pick a model off the shelf and put it in place in your organization. Instead, select competencies that are specific to your organization. Identify what behaviors your leaders need to support the organizational strategy and mission. Establish competencies that are critical to the success of the credit union, not just those that are popular or common practice. Since functional areas should know how their work impacts organizational goals, an individual should be able to draw a connection between the value of developing within a competency and the impact it will have on his/her role, the team and the organization.
In his daily Breakpoint commentary, Chuck Colson briefly reviews William Dembski’s new book Uncommon Dissent: Intellectuals Who Find Darwinism Unconvincing. Colson was especially taken by the interchange between David Berlinski and the pro-Darwinists. It led him to think, “Suffice it to say, after reading this chapter, and better yet this book, you’ll realize that Darwinism is in for a grilling like none it has experienced before. And it’s about time.” He also mentions this unusual factoid from another chapter:Another new name is Edward Sisson, an attorney who used to direct avant-garde theater. His chapter sheds some much needed light on the Scopes trial. For example, did you know that the very textbook from which Scopes taught advocated eugenics and promoted racism? Indeed, it divided humanity into five races and ranked them in terms of superiority, concluding with “the highest type of all, the Caucasians, represented by the civilized white inhabitants of Europe and America.” This is the book Darwinists insist Scopes had a right to teach?(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
When you were hungry you did whatever was necessary. It didn’t matter if something was ridiculously difficult or not, you employed all of your initiative and all of your resourcefulness to find a way or make one.When you were hungry, no challenge was too great. You needed to make things happen, and you turned yourself inside out to do the impossible.But you are no longer hungry. When something is difficult, you avoid it, instead of digging deep and getting it done. Now, when you encounter the “ridiculously impossible” you employ all of your initiative and resourcefulness in identifying all the reasons you “can’t” or “shouldn’t” do whatever is necessary.When you are already uncomfortable, doing things that are uncomfortable and difficult is easy. But once you allow yourself to lose the hunger, you don’t want to return to discomfort.The problem is that you have competitors who are still hungry. They are already uncomfortable, and they are willing to do what you are unwilling to do. The things that you call “impossible,” they call “how we win.” This is how you end up being competitively displaced.The status quo is complacency. Being exceptional means never growing complacent, never allowing the status quo to take hold, and staying hungry when it is easy to slip into the warm comfort of “how we do things now.”.You can’t let anyone want “it” more than you want “it.” You must find a way to recall how it felt to be hungry, and revert to the resourcefulness and initiative that defined you back then. If you need motivation, just imagine how it would feel to lose the comfort you have now. It would feel a lot worse than being hungry the first time around because back then you didn’t know any different.The difference between the professionals and poseurs is that the pros find a way to stay hungry.
Trump tells impeachment jokes at annual turkey pardon event CONSISTENTThe Magic have used the same starting lineup in 28 straight games, going back to Jan. 23. To put that in some perspective, since Jan. 23 the Heat have used eight different starting lineups.PECULIARThe Heat are now 2-2 in jersey-retirement games. They won when retiring jerseys for Shaquille O’Neal and Tim Hardaway, but lost when hoisting one for Alonzo Mourning — also against Orlando, and also in the 74th Heat game of the season, just like Tuesday night.UP NEXTMagic: Visit Detroit on Thursday.Heat: Host Dallas on Thursday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Colombia protesters vow new strike after talks hit snag The Heat led by 17 in the first half, settling for a 51-42 lead at the break — a 35-minute halftime in real time, because of the length of the ceremony paying tribute to Bosh.Orlando clearly wasn’t deterred by the longer-than-usual intermission. The Magic controlled the third quarter, taking their first lead of the game with 5:11 left in the period on a 3-pointer by Issac. Orlando shot 57 percent in the quarter, held the Heat to 30 percent from the floor in those 12 minutes, outscored Miami by 15 points and took a 76-70 lead into the fourth.Orlando pushed the lead out to eight early in the fourth, before a 10-2 Heat run — fueled in part by a four-point play from Wade — tied the game at 82. Unbothered yet again, Orlando scored nine of the next 11 points and went up 91-84 on a 3-pointer by Vucevic with 5:56 remaining.Miami has eight games left, which would be the last eight games of Wade’s career if the playoffs are missed.“We’re in the fight,” Wade said. “We’ve got a chance.”TIP-INSMagic: This game started a four-game trip against East playoff contenders, with stops left in Detroit, Indiana and Toronto. “We’re going to have to go on the road and do it, but we have more than enough talent,” Orlando coach Steve Clifford said. … This was the 14th and final back-to-back of the season for the Magic. They were 10-4 in openers, 6-8 in second games.Heat: Wade played against Orlando for the 53rd and presumably final time.

IRVING, Texas — Dallas running back Joseph Randle says he made a “huge mistake” when he was arrested on a shoplifting charge that led to a fine from the Cowboys, but no suspension.Randle was charged with a Class B misdemeanor of theft between $50 and $500 after he was accused of taking $123 worth of cologne and underwear from a department store at a suburban Dallas mall on Oct. 13.Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Randle would be fined “significantly” but would play Oct. 19 against the New York Giants.Randle met with Garrett on Oct. 14 and addressed his teammates before practice Oct. 15. He said he appreciated their support.“They know people mess up,” Randle said. “I’m just trying to take full responsibility and really just move on from it.”According to the arrest report, Randle was caught on video placing items later identified as a “tester” bottle of Gucci Guilty Black cologne and a two-pack of Polo underwear into a Dillard’s bag after making a purchase at the store at Stonebriar Centre, about 30 miles north of Dallas.The 22-year-old Randle was stopped by a security guard in the parking lot and later told a police officer that when he saw the “old guy,” referring to the security guard, he thought to himself, “All right, y’all got me.”The arrest came a day after one of Randle’s best games in two seasons with Dallas in a 30-23 victory against Super Bowl champion Seattle. He had a 38-yard run and a key tackle on a late kickoff.“Well, I really just made a huge mistake. I disappointed a lot of people who really care about me, like my brothers on the team, coaches, this whole organization,” Randle said. “I let a lot of people down. I’m just going to try my best to make it up to them.”Quarterback Tony Romo said he had talked to Randle.“He obviously wants to make better decisions in the future and I think that the way that he sounds, he will,” Romo said. “We’re his pseudo-family here, so we’ve got his back.”The Cowboys (5-1) play their first NFC East opponent in the Giants (3-3).(SCHUYLER DIXON, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares
APTN National NewsThe well-known editor of a long-running First Nation media outlet has been laid off, the victim of federal budget cuts.Maurice Switzer worked for Anishinabek News for 14 years before he was let go this past week. Anishinabek News is operated by the communications unit of the Union of Ontario Indians, an organization that saw its core funding drop for 2014.“He (Switzer) was laid off last week due to business conditions.” wrote UOI spokesperson Marci Becking in an email distributed to freelance writers. “This notice was necessary given the recent fiscal attacks against the (Provincial & Territorial Organizations) by the federal government, cutting core funding for such activities as communications.”Becking says Switzer will continue to work with the Union of Ontario Indians as a contract public educator.Started in 1988, Anishinabek News was originally a newspaper but published its last printed edition in March of 2014. With Switzer’s departure, Marci Becking says she is Anishinabek News’ sole employee.Switzer wasn’t available to comment.
Tennis fans were disappointed this weekend when Serena Williams backed out of the Italian Open before her semifinal match. Clay has perennially been her worst surface. Williams said backing out was the best way to prevent any further injuries—just before the summer stretch of the French Open, Wimbledone and the U.S. Open—after she had been complaining about pains in her lower back.“I [felt] a little bit of ache and pain and don’t want to go out there and start compensating and eventually hurt something else,” Serena told reporters.Serena’s withdrawal means that Li Na, the reigning French Open champion, will automatically advance to the finals in Rome.According to Williams this isn’t the first time her back has been a problem since she began playing in the Italian Open. Earlier this week she was reported saying, “It was feeling a little stiff and I don’t think this is the right moment to force [it]. I just want to relax and get ready for the next few months.” The decision has put an end to Serena’s streak of 17 consecutive victories. According to ESPN, several other players are nursing injuries as well, but there is no word out yet on whether there will be more withdrawals from the Italian Open.“Everyone. I’m sooooo sad and sorry I had to pull out of what has become my favorite tournament in Rome,” Serena tweeted. “Everyone has become so nice here in Rome and the tournament director is amazing. I will be here next year for sure.”Li Na will go on to compete with Maria Sharapova, the defending champion of the Rome Final, or Angelique Kerber of Germany.
