Competency models serve as a basis for HR strategic processes such as performance management, workforce planning, personal and leadership development. Deloitte has gained significant experience in designing and reviewing competency models for its clients. We work as well with Deloitte proprietary model as with the research based Lominger® competency model and methodology.
The Lominger® library has been developed by highly recognised researchers and is widely used across the world. The model is made of 67 competencies, highly correlated with success at work and easily customisable to fit any organisation’s culture or operating style. It is deployable in a range of applications including competency modelling, job profiling and training, recruitment and design of performance management and development plans.
Example structure for a competency model
It is crucial to ensure that leaders have the right capabilities, vision and proven track to achieve the organisation goals. Research has shown that leadership is much more than past performance. It is a lot about the present, the future and the environment, as well as the ability of 'getting things done through other people'.
Using research and best practices, our leadership consultants have developed the concept of Dialogical Leader©. Our proven methodology is based on dialogues with leaders and their teams supported, when required, by complementary assessment tools (e.g. 360 evaluation and psychometric testing). Our approach enables your leaders to explore their leadership roles, context, culture and of course their personality with a view to significantly improve the way they act with and influence others.
The Dialogical Leader©
The only leadership model should be your own … but use a proven methodology to jump start and set it going.
