TAKING CHARGE - COMPETENCY SELF-ASSESSMENT

When it comes to your professional competencies, it's important to know your own strengths and areas for potential growth. Taking Charge is a free online tool that supports you to self-assess your current level of mastery and compare this to your desired level of mastery as a basis for building self-awareness and informing your professional development planning.

  • Individual Career Development Professionals (CDPs): Use Taking Charge at any point on your career journey to support reflection and professional growth. Once completed, a customized report will be automatically generated that identifies your strengths and skill gaps to inform your learning plan.
  • Organizations & Governments Employing/Funding CDPs: Use Taking Charge to gauge the competency strengths and gaps across your agency/jurisdiction to assess capacity and inform training plans. Customization of desired mastery levels can ensure your report is tailored to your priorities and realities.
