A recruiting firm based in England asked a pal to list her "Core Competencies" for a prospective top-level job, using these categories:
* Burning Drive for Results
* Strategic Dexterity
* Winning the license to operate
* Delivering through people
* Leading Others
Think about your own skills and abilities in terms of these competencies. In my experience, they are prized by employers on this side of the pond, also.
