Our Reflections

By Emma Schneider and Julie Gillespie

What motivates someone to move from competency to proficiency?

Our purpose of this conversation was to unpack the results from the RTC Conference in May 2022 when we asked the industry: “What motivates someone to move from competency to proficiency?”

There are four main questions that we are deeply interested in:

  1. What were the definition that came to the surface for: Motivation, Competency, Proficiency

  2. What motivates someone to move from competency to proficiency?

  3. On the flip side, what de-motivates someone to move from competency to proficiency?

  4. What types of conversations need to be started in the training industry to resolve this gap?
