Product description

The presentation and quality of your Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) can make or break your Senior Executive Service journey

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Qualifications Review Board (QRB) guidance indicates that you are permitted to describe one or two achievements for each Executive Core Qualification.

However, two achievement stories per Executive Core Qualification is the best practice.

We have not seen a set of ECQs pass the Office of Personnel Management’s certification process in the last several years without two stories per ECQ.

The most vital achievements demonstrate strategic leadership abilities rather than managerial or technical abilities.

Avoid mid-level accomplishments, transactional activities, or content that encompasses your day-to-day responsibilities.

The Qualifications Review Board is looking for the extraordinary!

 

Why are Executive Core Qualifications important?

ECQs are required for entry to the Senior Executive Service and are used by many federal departments and agencies in the selection, performance management, and leadership development for management and executive positions.

 

Your Executive Core Qualifications solution

This bundle includes an in-depth guide and a comprehensive worksheet to help you get started on your ECQs.

It has been specifically designed to not only provide a thorough and concise explanation of every Core Qualification but to also bring out your best and most relevant professional achievements and experiences.

With this, you’ll be able to lead with your best foot forward through the Senior Executive Service application process!

 

This bundle will teach you:

  • The Importance of effective ECQs
  • Tips for developing your ECQ content
  • Definitions and tips to help you outline your Executive Core Qualifications
  • How to demonstrate your strategic leadership abilities most effectively
