Finding of ECQ examples. Before you begin writing your ECQs, you must identify ten or even more examples/stories to use. Your stories should be in line with competencies (leading change, leading people, result-oriented, business acumen, and building coalitions); be from the last 10 years (5 is better if possible), and be at the executive level. Holding meetings, organizing training, implementing someone else's plan are usually not considered executive. Your examples should demonstrate your strategic thinking and, ideally, influence the entire enterprise. When defining your examples, you may find that you have stories that can fit into more than one ECQ. Try to choose the strongest match between ECQ and the fact that ECQ is at the core of competencies (for example, basic competencies for driving change: vision, strategic thinking, external awareness, innovation/creativity, flexibility, and sustainability).

Career Pro Global performed outstanding work in writing my ECQs. I came from the private sector and did not know anything about the ECQ process and the difficulty in creating them. The career advisor took the time to explain to me in an initial call how the process would work and put me at ease. My executive writer provided me with a questionnaire and he was able to take the information I provided and created ECQs that was approved by the QRB and now I am one of the newest members of the SES.
