TLpyramid3smResearch shows the average person utilizes only 20-25% of their existing potential. Small increases in the use of untapped potential can deliver significant results with multiplying effects. An organization can transform its results simply by developing its people. A leadership development program increases effectiveness for the management process, enhances productivity, and builds a results-based leadership culture.

Training and development is a critical component for organizational success. Despite this belief, many companies continue to pour money into programs that fail to deliver long-term results. Many companies send their employees to workshops or seminars throughout the year, yet they continue to experience the same challenges in their workplace.

At LMI, we take pride in offering long-term leadership development options which allow for the refinement of more successful habits and behaviors leading to success. Participants experience accountability from several sources, including Facilitator, Coach, Supervisor, Mentor, and Group of Peers. These different sources of accountability, coupled with a long-term process, produces positive changes in attitudes and behaviors. These changes translate into increased productivity, results, and a better equipped workforce.

LMI’s development programs are built to encourage personal growth and a higher level of behavioral change. However, because people desire continued accountability after the end of a development program, individuals often inquire about the possibility of a continued coaching relationship.

According to the International Coach Federation Study, people hire coaches for many different reasons. From sounding board, to motivator, mentor to business consultant, a coach can serve a variety of capacities. People typically have challenges with four or five key issues, such as:

  • Organizational/Business Direction
  • Time Management/Goal Setting
  • Personal Success
  • Career Guidance
  • Business Processes
  • Personnel Challenges
  • Relationships/Family Balance
  • Wellness
  • Lack of Focus

While all of the above challenges may be addressed through a personal or executive level development process, we understand that sometimes it works better for individual scheduling reasons to engage in monthly coaching rather than weekly or bi-weekly development sessions. The coaching process focuses on “what matters most” to the participant. By assessing each individual’s needs and learning habits and behaviors, we focus our joint attention on “High Payoff Activities” to improve performance and results. We introduce time tested tools and techniques to create a positive ROI and help you achieve your desired level of success.

Individual & Organizational Assessments

Most organizations understand that effective management and deployment of assets can mean the difference between success and failure. But many organizations fail to consider their most critical assets — human capital.

A recent study by McKinsey & Company revealed that “A” performers tend to be 50-100% more productive than “C” performers. Clearly, identifying those with the potential for “A” performance can enhance an organizations performance. So, how does an employer identify outstanding potential, and once identified, how does an employer retain and continue to development that potential?

Testing and Survey tools have long been an effective, yet underutilized, tool to help employers make the most of their human capital. As part of our Strategic Development Process, we offer awareness tools via assessment and survey instruments that enhance performance on three fronts: New Hire Selection, 360° Feedback Surveys, and Cultural & Organizational Needs Surveys.

We offer the following assessments:

  • Entry Level & Hourly Pre-hire
  • Leadership Pre-hire & Development
  • Sales Pre-hire & Development
  • Organizational Climate Survey®
  • Models for Management™
  • Development Needs Inventory®
  • Organizational Needs Inventory®
