3T Leadership Competency Model Evaluation in the HRM Context
As a widely recognized framework, the 3T leadership competency model identifies three key leadership competencies: Task, Team, and Individual. It is possible to evaluate this model in HRM contexts to determine its relevance and effectiveness in guiding HR professionals and leaders in their duties and responsibilities.
i. Task Competency:
The ability to set goals, plan and organize work, and achieve results are all part of task competency. As HR leaders, we are able to align HR strategies with organizational objectives and goals when we possess strong task competency. Human resources professionals possess a strong understanding of the function, and they are adept at developing and implementing HR policies, procedures, and programs that support business goals. In addition to recruiting and selecting, performance management, training and development, compensation and benefits, and employee relations are also included. The success of an organization depends on HR leaders with strong task competencies aligning HR initiatives with its strategic direction.
ii. Team Competency:
The ability to build and develop effective teams is a core competency of HRM leaders. It refers to the ability to create high-performing HR teams and to foster a positive working environment among employees. To contribute to the organization’s HR goals, they must be able to recruit, develop, and retain talented HR professionals. In addition to promoting collaboration, communication, and teamwork within the HR department, HR leaders with strong team competencies also promote cross-departmental collaboration. Additionally, they ensure fair, equitable, and unbiased HR practices, and they contribute to promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion.
iii. Individual Competency:
A leader’s personal qualities and characteristics contribute to his or her effectiveness as a leader. It is important for HR leaders with strong individual competency to be self-aware, emotionally intelligent, and ethical. In addition to having excellent communication and interpersonal skills, they have the ability to build trust and credibility among employees. In addition to being good problem solvers, decision makers, and adaptable, highly competent HR leaders understand the importance of continuous learning and development, both for themselves and their HR teams.
