Abstract : The Organizational Effectiveness Center and School (OEC/S) at Ft Ord, CA, has been the training center for the Army's Organizational Effectiveness Consultants since 1975. The effectiveness of such consultants appears to be dependent upon 'soft skills' interpersonal competencies, rather than specific tasks which are performed. In 1979, OEC/S and the Army Research Institute contracted with McBer and Co. to develop a model of the competencies which distinguish the superior from the average consultant. Eighteen of the 33 competencies identified in the McBer model were considered by OEC/S to be potentially trainable in the course. The success of the training requires an understanding of the competencies and an ability, on the part of the trainers, to recognize if and when the competencies are being demonstrated. (Author)
