Check out this list of competencies for an HPT professional as listed in the HPI Essentials book (by ASTD press):

  • Analysis Skill
  • Business Knowledge
  • Change Management Skill
  • Facilitation Skill
  • HPI Understanding
  • Influencing Skill
  • Project Management Skill
  • Questioning Skill
  • Relationship-Building Skill
  • Systematic Thinking Skill

It also lists these attributes:

  • Behavioral Flexibility
  • Comfort with Ambiguity
  • Objectivity
  • Self-Confidence

That sounds like what people want social media managers to have! If you are looking for someone like that, I know lots of people graduating with this sort of degree in the next six months….
