The four competing Competencies include:
1. Disruptive and pragmatic: Disrupting through innovation whilst retaining a pragmatic focus on priorities.
2. Risk-taking and reluctant: Executing on opportunistic and calculated risks whilst being vigilant about excessive dangers.
3. Heroic and vulnerable: Heroic, though not self-delusional and at the same time being willing to improve/reflect on themselves and adopt continuous improvement to their organisation.
4. Galvanizing and connecting: Connect the organisation to a higher purpose, support and inspire others, share the credit and actively promote the success of others.
I believe that Leaders need to be able to navigate complexity and in particular, the grey associated with competing and opposing priorities. This includes becoming more tolerant of ambiguity and asking more questions that force you to look at both sides of the dilemma/issue.
