Relationship Management 

The competency that we are going to explore is in the Base Camp Essentials  level. Someone just entering a leadership position (a "lead position" or first level supervisor) should be focused on developing this level's competencies as quickly as possible. Leaders learn that being a leader isn't simply about being "the boss" or having authority... it's about beginning to understand that everyone is different. Leaders need to begin grasping the inherent differences, strengths, talents, etc., of individuals and how those relate to success on the job.
