First, we meet with you to determine exactly what you want to accomplish.  These goals will be the driving force behind our results-centered process.  Once your goals are defined, we work with you to determine what behaviors need to be changed to reach your goals.  In addition, we help you identify what information your people need to develop the skills required to reach your stated goals.
Any business is only as good as the people who work there.  Often people already know what to change, but need a process to help make the change.  Lengthy lectures and long seminars don't work.  Spaced repetition and group dynamics to help the participants develop their skills and behaviors are key to the success of this process.
After goals are established for your organization, we use the following Leadership Management® International (LMI) process for change:
You select the individuals based on the goals desired.  Who are the key people whose actions determine the outcome of the goal?  Groups can be configured with the assistance of an LMI representative. 
  • Develop a Dynamic Plan of Action
  • Determine Method of Tracking Results
  • Measure Progress As It Occurs 
  • Identify Performance Issues Based on Goals
  • Determine Current Level of Performance
  • Calculate Performance Gap 
  • Identify Critical Success Factors
  • Establish Key Function Indicators
  • Integrate Behavior Changes Into Daily Productivity
  • Document Return on Investment
  • Identify Additional Areas for Continuing Improvement
  • Implement Changes as Required 
Producing RESULTS using a Plan of Action
After helping people set specific and measurable goals, the LMI process helps them identify changes in behavior and habits required to reach these goals.  The changes and the techniques required to make them are put into a Plan of Action.  Participants begin immediately working in their Plan of Action to make the changes required to achieve the results they want.
Implementing the LMI process over several weeks offers invaluable benefits.  First of all, this approach takes advantage of the time-proven principle that  people learn by doing.  At least 80 percent of new ideas heard in a seminar are quickly forgotten.  In the LMI process, participants immediately put into practice what they are learning, and new behaviors are applied directly to daily issues.
Within a short time, participants "own" their behavior changes.  Long-term retention of new behavior is strengthened by everyday application.  To reinforce their learning even more, participants complete weekly feedback sheets, and results are measured.  Accountability is important!  As participants see their accomplishments, they are motivated and coached to do even better.

Paul J. Meyer, LMI Founder & Author

Paul J. Meyer’s extraordinary life and legacy seem unlikely for a boy born into a poor immigrant family in 1928. Paul’s parents gave him something far greater than material wealth — they instilled Christian values along with strong moral principles, a robust work ethic, and a burning desire to learn and excel. These values and early life lessons were the building blocks for Paul’s stellar success.

  • At 12 years old, Paul started his own bicycle repair business, refurbishing and selling more than 300 bicycles by the time he was 16.
  • Between 13 and 18 years old, Paul set national records for selling magazines and picking prunes, earned the highest Boy Scout rank of Eagle Scout, and broke physical fitness records in the Army.
  • At 19 years old, Paul set insurance sales records; at 22, he became the youngest member of the Million Dollar Round Table; and at 27, he became a millionaire.

Paul’s early successes and setbacks with his entrepreneurial endeavors helped form him into the determined, disciplined leader he would become, building a foundation that would lead to his owning more than 40 diverse companies worldwide and becoming the pioneer of an entire industry.

Paul J. Meyer’s passion in life was helping people reach their full potential. As in everything he did, he pursued this calling with a single-minded focus. His heart for people and his caring spirit created an impact on countless lives. Each story of a life touched by Paul is a testimony to the powerful change that comes when you live out God’s calling on your life, as Paul did.
