What is Expertship?
EXPERTSHIP IS THE ACT OF BEING AN EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, INFLUENTIAL AND PERCEPTIVE INDIVIDUAL.
It’s your technical expertise combined with business acumen, to ensure you’re in line with strategy. The addition of empathy to build relationships with diverse, and often divergent stakeholders. The agility to adapt when facing change and the self-awareness to pull all of this together, driving the business forward.
In short, it’s about being a better expert.
“If you excel in all of these areas, chances are you’ll find your workplace a truly rewarding, and satisfying place to be. You’ll be held in high regard across the organisation, and happily welcomed into any project group.”
THE EXPERTSHIP MODEL
Expertship is split into three domains and nine capabilities, and to operate at the highest level you need to operating efficiently in all three domains.
The collection, application and transfer of knowledge. It’s what experts are known for, although individuals vary widely across the spectrum.
An individual’s ability to contribute to overall business success. Able to see the big picture and spot the opportunity inherent in the business.
Influencing and engaging those around you in a positive manner. Inspiring and encouraging people into action. Bringing them along for the journey.
FORTUNATELY, EXPERTSHIP CAN BE LEARNED
For some it comes naturally, but for most, it’s a struggle. Fortunately for those of us in that category, it’s also a series of skills that can be learned. We’ve been taking experts through the process of developing Expertship for years now, and while it’s not always an easy path, the rewards are genuine, often immediate, and long lasting.
It’s like anything really, the more you put in, the more you get out. And that all comes down to you.
