Give the Gift of Development Gift Pack

I'm pleased to welcome a new sponsor to Great Leadership, Lominger, a division of Korn/Ferry International.

I've been using Lominger products since they were founded back in 1991. I like them because they are research based, easy to use, with roots going back to the Center for Creative Leadership's approach to leadership development. In fact, one of their founders, Michael Lombardo, co-authored the classic 1988 book "The Lessons of Experience", which is still used to define leadership development best practices.

FYI, For Your Improvement, has always been the most well worn leadership development resource on my bookshelf. It's my favorite tool for helping managers create their individual development plans. I will no longer lend it out, because no one ever wants to return it once they start using it.

Just in time for the holidays, Lominger has introduced the Development Gift Pack—the perfect set of tools for developing (yourself), coaching (direct reports) and leading (teams). For a limited time you can save 45% on four of their top development books.

The Development Gift Pack is for:

- Managers or individual contributors for self-development
- A resource for managers to help develop their employees and teams
- A resource for HR pros, coaches, consultants, and trainers to help develop others

This unique Pack includes:

•FYI For Your Improvement™ 5th Edition—a development book based on 50 years of research
•FYI for Teams™ 2nd Edition—includes 200 easy-to-implement team development tips
•YOU: Being More Effective in your MBTI® Type—a leadership development book built around the 16 MBTI® personality types
•Broadband Talent Management™: Paths to Improvement—helps uncover new ways to approach individual performance needs.

You get all four for only $139.00 - a savings of $113.95!

Looking for that perfect "Secret Santa" gift for your manager, employees, clients, or partners? There's no need to go out and battle the crowds on Black Friday. Why not give them a gift that will keep on giving - the gift of development!

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Disclosure: In case it isn't blatantly obvious, this has been a sponsored post. However, I stand behind everything I said about Lominger and their products. They really do rock.
