The Lominger Competency Model is a management tool based on 67 core competencies that business leaders use to inform the management process from interviewing candidates and appraising performance to developing long-range staffing strategies.The Lominger Competency Model or Suite consists of various tools, each focused on aspects of human resource management.
By studying successful and not so successful leaders, researchers identified the 67 competency indicators aligned with success and 19 traits common among less successful individuals. The 67 competencies include, action oriented, conflict management, integrity and trust, strategic agility and work/life balance. The model's interview structure focuses on identifying a candidate's competencies or propensity for the characteristics that foretell success. A belief in the ability of individuals to develop or enrich the competencies aligned with success is part of the model. Moving beyond staff recruitment and selection, the Lominger Suite provides competency-based tools to assist management in a range of efforts from team building to 360 performance assessments and succession planning.
Lominger's parent company, Korn Ferry, offers consulting services to assist companies in the identification of corporate specific competencies and the development of competency models tailored to the company's unique needs. The Lominger model is based on research conducted by the Center for Creative Leadership in collaboration with large U.S. corporations, including AT&T and Sears.
