Descripción

Since 2000 our research has been based on the Emotional and Social Competencies Inventory developed by Boyatzis and Goleman. Despite the robustness of said instrument, constraints related to copyright (direct impediments for publication) and the cultural context where it was developed (threat to construct validity when applied to other countries) prompted the need to develop a new measurement instrument to assess emotional and social competencies. In this sense, ESADE and Ca’Foscari started working together, two years ago, to develop and validate said tool. This project is run in collaboration with the Ca Foscari Competency Centre of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and adds to the third stream of EI research (Boyatzis and Sala, 2004) by proposing and empirically testing a new model of behavioural competencies and the related inventory. The project aims to enrich existing competency models considering a comprehensive set of competencies increasingly recognized as those that can support organizations and provide a competitive advantage. Starting from consolidated scales developed in the literature related to the third stream of EI research, we are going to complement them with the most recent advancements in the field of behavioral competencies, with a particular focus on the emerging skills for succeeding in the innovation and entrepreneurial endeavors (e.g. Dyer, Gregersen and Christensen, 2008; Puccio, Mance and Murdock 2011). The model will encompass six different areas: awareness, action, social, cognitive competencies, exploration and organizational action behaviours. This study contributes to the literature first by identifying, through both in-depth literature review and empirical investigation, a comprehensive repertoire of behavioural competencies related to work effectiveness and innovation pursuing. Secondly, it proposes a measurement scale of assessment applicable to both educational and managerial settings.
