LPM WSQ FRAMEWORK

THE LEADERSHIP AND PEOPLE MANAGEMENT WSQ FRAMEWORK

The LPM WSQ framework is designed for leaders and managers to chart corporate leadership capabilities and shape a roadmap for leadership development. It enables leaders and managers to advance their careers and skills through the attainment of modularised units of competency under a nationally recognised framework.

27 competencies under six core competency categories have been identified for leaders and managers at the managerial and transformational levels.

The LPM framework is represented by a circle because all the six competency categories are inter-related and are of equal importance. ‘Personal Effectiveness’ is placed in the centre of the circle to ensure that leaders are aware of their strengths, areas of improvement, and their leadership styles. Leaders need strong self-awareness to work effectively with their team and network members, and to achieve success.
