FYI Resource Center

FYI® for your improvement resources.

Welcome to the FYI® for your improvement resource site!


In each chapter of FYI® for your improvement, there is a section of deep dive resource links, meant to help you explore developing each competency further. This site is where all of those links are housed, organized into their four Korn Ferry Leadership Architect™ factors.


To find a competency's deep dive links, simply determine the factor it's in and use the yellow box to the right to navigate to that factor's page. There, you’ll find a complete listing of the deep dive links associated with each competency within that factor.


We’ll be updating this resources landing page with current case studies, news stories, and other useful competency-related information - so be sure to check back often for new FYI® for your improvement content.
