FYI: For Your Improvement

Whether you’re an emerging leader interested in self-development or a leader seeking to provide valuable development feedback to individuals on your team, here’s a must-have book for your bookshelf:

FYI: For Your Improvement, A Guide for Development and Coaching (4th edition)

By Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinger

FYI is an entire library in one book. Each chapter is dedicated to a competency, staller/stopper, or global focus area. In each chapter you will find detailed definitions and descriptions, possible causes, as well as suggested remedies, on-the-job tasks, and readings that promote development. Competencies are defined as “a measurable characteristic of a person that is related to success at work. It may be a behavioral skill, a technical skill, an attribute (such as intelligence), or an attitude (such as optimism).

Career Stallers and Stoppers are the negative characteristics or flame-out factors that can derail a person’s career. In many respects, they represent the flip side of competencies. 

This book is as thick as a phone book! Over 600 pages in length, it’s a go-to resource for mentoring and developing individuals. You may choose to loan this book to your direct reports or use it as a reference come performance review time.

I look forward to hearing what you think!
