    Competence

    For a newcomer, being slow and somewhat inept at working on the assembly line is not incompetence. It is a lack of practice, unlike the next person on the line who has been there for seven years.

    Competence is the ability, knowledge and common sense to run or manage a business. Some of this ability is given to us at birth through inheritance. Another area of our ability comes through study and acquired knowledge. Schooling and experience adds to our competence. Associating areas of training to what you are presently doing broadens your field of knowledge. Like the utilitarian or jack of all trades, a person knows something about almost everything.

    Sloppy workmanship ruins a competent person. The last part of competence is gained through lessons learned through life experiences. Mixing the three of these together gives us the wherewithal to run a company or manage a group of workers. An added plus is to have our character gain the ability to be pleasing, charming and cheerful. These traits are needed to be a competent supervisor or owner.
