The growth of technical skills is one aspect of our development. As important are the behaviors that are expected of us as we perform the technical aspects of our job. To advance oneself we need to develop in both the skills expected at each level and the behaviors or competencies expected at each level.
The diagram above is a roadmap to help you understand the competencies or behaviors expected for each level within the company. Use this in career related discussions with your supervisor and in your own development. This tool is not intended to be a checklist of required skills but rather what we aspire to achieve in the various positions we have within each department. These behaviors, along with the technical skills and/or education requirements, become a profile that you build over time through on-the-job experiences and feedback you initiate and receive every day on the job.
The Leadership Competencies by level illustrates the path of continuous development throughout your entire journey with Geo, beginning with foundational skills at the employee/individual contributor level. As you continue through each level, expectations for competencies from the previous level increase, and additional competencies and expectations are identified.
A career with Geo provides exposure to different types of product offerings, challenging projects as well as team dynamics to identify your unique practices for managing and dealing with these situations. Mastering this set of behaviors promotes personal growth both personally and professionally at every level within the company.
