    Introduction: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has identified five Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs).  The ECQs were designed to assess executive experience and potential - not technical expertise.

Successful competence in the SES requires competence in each ECQ.  Candidates must demonstrate executive experience in all five (5) ECQs.  Your application should reflect an overall record of the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to succeed in the SES. 

    Your ECQ narratives should be no more than 10 pages (2 pages per ECQ).  Examples of good qualifications statements and the use of the C-C-A-R model (Challenge/Context/Action/Results), the preferred method of writing your ECQs, is provided in OPM's Guide to SES QualificationsYou must fully address each ECQ to be rated for further consideration.  Current or former career SES employees, or OPM/QRB Candidate Development Program (CDP) candidates are not required to address the ECQs, but MUST address the MTQs.

    1. Challenge - Describe a specific problem or goal.

    2. Context - Talk about the individuals and groups you worked with, and/or the environment in which you worked to tackle a particular challenge (e.g., clients, co-workers, members of Congress, shrinking budget, low morale).

    3. Action - Discuss the specific actions you took to address a challenge.

    4. Results - Give specific examples of the results of your actions.

    These accomplishments demonstrate the quality and effectiveness of your leadership skills.

    NOTE: Your responses to the five ECQs must describe the context and the results of your achievements in lay terminology, free of jargon and excessive reliance on acronyms.

    ECQ 1 - LEADING CHANGE - This core qualification involves the ability to bring about strategic change, both within and outside the organization, to meet organizational goals. Inherent to this ECQ is the ability to establish an organizational vision and to implement it in a continuously changing environment. (Leadership Competencies: creativity and innovation, external awareness, flexibility, strategic thinking and vision).

    ECQ 2 - LEADING PEOPLE - This core qualification involves the ability to lead people toward meeting the organization's vision, mission, and goals. Inherent to this ECQ is the ability to provide an inclusive workplace that fosters the development of others, facilitates cooperation and teamwork, and supports constructive resolution of conflicts. (Leadership Competencies: conflict management, leveraging diversity, developing others and team building).

    ECQ 3 - RESULTS DRIVEN - This core qualification involves the ability to meet organizational goals and customer expectations. Inherent to this ECQ is the ability to make decisions that produce high-quality results by applying technical knowledge, analyzing problems, and calculating risks. (Leadership Competencies: accountability, customer service, decisiveness, entrepreneurship, problem solving and technical credibility).
