Lominger competencies, and the Lominger competencies list, were first developed by Lominger International. The keystone product for sharing the Lominger competencies was a book called FYI: For Your Improvement, that provided actionable development suggestions and definitions for all of the Lominger leadership competencies. The Lominger competencies book included 67 Competencies, 19 Stallers and Stoppers, and 7 Global Focus Areas.
In 2006 Lominger International, and all of the Lominger competencies products were purchased by the executive recruiting firm Korn Ferry International in an effort to expand Korn Ferry's product offering beyond executive recruitment. FYI: For Your Improvement and the Lominger competencies products are now offered by Korn Ferry via their website.
Korn Ferry International did a major overhaul of the original Lominger competencies list when they reduced the Lominger competencies list to 38 Korn Kerry Leadership Architect competencies, and 10 career Stallers and Stoppers. In the current FYI: For Your Improvement you will find the following for each of the 38 remaining Lominger competencies: competency definitions, examples of skilled, less skilled, talented, and overused skills content, tips to develop each of the Lominger competencies on the Lominger competencies list, job assignments that can aid in developing the 38 leadership competencies, and some suggested readings.
The SLDA leadership competencies solution strategically differs from the Lominger competencies found in Korn Ferry's FYI: For Your Improvement and their list of 38 leadership competencies in the following five ways.
The Lominger competencies, and their original 67 leadership competencies list, and the current 38 leadership competencies in the Korn Ferry book FYI: For Your Improvement, have provided the leadership competencies standard for decades. The quality of the Lominger/Korn Ferry content and offerings have been a backbone to the field of leadership development during this same era.
At Suhaka Leadership Development Associates we hope that the SLDA leadership competencies solution, where it is the best fit, will become a welcome addition to the options for companies to consider when selecting a leadership competencies partner.
