Are you looking for proven, world-class People development solutions to improve performance & productivity in your business? 
  • The LMI Foundations of Success Workshopintroduces the concepts and practical tools that have been used to help many thousands of organisations (& countless individuals!) realise more of their true potential.  

    This workshop is integral to LMI's Total Leader Concept and shows you how to:

    • Establish an effective goal setting system to achieve sustained, consistent success.
    • Manage your workload & priorities more effectively, getting more important stuff done each day.
    • Create more time and energy for crucial strategic work that so often gets sidelined by the urgent crises and daily fire-fighting.
    • Improve internal & external communication


    I'm Nick Howes  of LMI UK and alongside my colleagues we have run these workshops with hundreds of managers and leaders across the UK in recent years with incredible results.

    ​I am delighted to make this offer to HR / L&D / Training managers, as well as business owners and directors:

    One complimentary place for yourself, or a key person you'd like to send on your behalf, so you can experience first hand the results we help our clients achieve.

    We have found this a really positive & friendly way to introduce organisations to our unique leadership and management solutions.

    I am a manager myself, not just a trainer. I lead a team. I deal directly with clients. I know what it's like to handle all these pressures each day and it's the tools from this workshop that I use constantly to keep me on track. Without them I would be a lot less effective and I know some of these things will be super-helpful to people in your organisation too.

    There's so much training out there so how do you know what's going to be truly effective?

    I know that you'll be familiar with a wide range of training courses...some more effective than others.  You'll be aware that for busy people, after that initial spike of post-course enthusiasm, often the back-at-work routine kicks in, the emails stack up and those new ideas and great intentions can find themselves gathering dust on the shelf (along with the course manual)!

    At LMI we understand that completely. We understand how people learn and how long-term changes are made. We use all of our experience from working with thousands of people across six continents to make sure that everything we do is designed to make a lasting impact.

    It's all about results...

    Investing precious time and money in training has to make a tangible, bottom-line impact on the business

    "More time...more profits...less stress...greater control...focus...balance...happiness!"

    These are just some of the words that our clients have used to describe how things have changed for them as a result of their attending the Foundations of Success Workshop and beginning to work with us. What each person gains from it will be personal to them...but our experience with hundreds of UK leaders, managers, business owners and sales professionals gives us this confidence - THEY CERTAINLY WILL GAIN!

    We have a huge library of reviews, testimonials and LinkedIn recommendations from previous delegates. Here you can read just a few of these...though if you'd like to see more, just ask!

    "Now getting through more work, charging more time..."

    "I left the room buzzing with ideas, most of which I have put into place and we are now getting through more work, charging more time, spending less time on unprofitable activities and generally feel a lot more in control. I eulogise your services to anyone who'll listen!"

    - Michael Kiy (MD, Yes We Do Websites)

    "I was sceptical...but WOW, I'm so glad I went!"

    "I thought I would get the usual tips and unrealistic suggestions. What I got was a real practical toolkit and a burning desire to review how I work. I feel back in the room and in control of my workload. Watch out...I feel enabled!"

    - Tracey Neuman (Director, BHLC)

    "I can honestly say I think what I learned will change my life..."

    "I have already started to implement the actions and I find myself completing tasks and strangely having free time too! I can honestly say I think what I learned will change my life!"

    - Adam Petford (Owner, The Biz Links)
    Warning: This is no exercise in ivory-tower management theory : ideas that sound great in a training room but have no value back in the real world of getting important work done. If you're interested in helping your people make practical steps forward in how they manage themselves and their interaction with others - sometimes it's the 1% changes that make all the difference -  this is for you! This Workshop is all about sharing great ideas and putting practical tools in your hands that will help managers & their teams be more effective and productive in their work. We absolutely love that this is exactly the feedback we keep on getting from those who attend!

    "Many much more productive"

    "I am thoroughly impressed with this course that Nick delivered and have already implemented many changes to my working style and my methods which have made me so much more productive. I like Nick's presentation style - very relaxed but informative and certainly eye opening to the pitfalls you fall in to! I would recommend this course to everyone."

    (Learning & Development Director, Regular Cleaning)

    although we are offering you one completely free place.
