Competencies are manifested through explicit behavior. The learning possibility for competencies is determined by the behavior associated with a competency. The closer this behavior is to the natural talents, the greater the possibility of developing this competency, particularly when the right motivation is offered from the direct management and environment.
However, it cannot be concluded that a person who has some talent will automatically master the related competencies. The environment will be a strong limiting factor. Drives and talents of a candidate are only an indication of whether a competency is easy or hard to develop. Talents alone do not guarantee that someone actually controls or displays a competency and associated behavior in the correct manner.
