CORE COMPETENCY – DARE TO BREAK THE MOLD!
“Core competency” has been defined as the basic things that a small business owner needs to know. My question is who defines what that core competency is?
In high school we are required to take “core competency” classes that some educators decided we should have. Going on to college, there is a “core competency” group of classes that each of us is required to take and then we have another group of “core competency” classes that are required to get a degree in a specific field.
Almost every high school and college graduate is stamped out in exactly the same mold. They are now a predictable group of people who have been formed the same way.
Change is the only constant in today’s world, yet we graduate people who have been formed according to the beliefs of academia and perhaps American Businesses.
Entrepreneurs who dare to break the competency mold have to struggle to get their voices heard or to get the necessary support needed to bring a new idea to life. Yes, a few break the mold and bring new innovations to the market place; what about the other 90+% who fail?
With the exception of a few bright spots in our academic world we still turn out identical “robots”. Bankers will not lend money to a new business if it doesn’t fit the “predictable “format. A few venture capitalists are stepping up but there are not enough of them to help everyone. Ongoing support that accepts change and will help a small business make a dream a reality is still hard to find.
BizQuack will always keep an open mind and will support all ideas that are brought forth. No, they may not all work, but we believe in giving everyone the opportunity to reach their vision. As a company, we also have a lot of growth to accomplish, as we forge ahead in uncharted waters.
We strive to provide the support all small business needs; and if you can’t find it, let us know and together we will create the new material and tools you need.
Change is the only constant and BizQuack wants to help you lead change instead of following it.
